Hoops face setback against familiar foes

KALAMAZOO, Mich. —Lansing United fell on the road for the first time this season 3-0 to Kalamazoo FC. The loss was United’s first league game without a goal since June 10, 2016, ending a 14-match streak.

“I think the scoreline was kind of brutal,” head coach Nate Miller said. “It didn’t reflect our performance.”

Kalamazoo got out in front early and made the most of the few opportunities they had in the game to stay there. United had several opportunities but could not find the end product going forward.

“It wasn’t our day because we didn’t make it our day,” Miller said. “I don’t think we had the killer instinct that we talked about.”

The hoops faced some familiar faces as Kalamazoo fielded three former Lansing players including Hunter Vandenboom, Esteban Russell, and goalscorer Ade Adeniyi.

“You can’t overreact to things like this” Miller said about the loss. He added that the team still has their sights set on winning the league. United will look to get back on track at home next Saturday against Grand Rapids FC.
