Dayton – The Dayton Dutch Lions FC (6-17-4), 22 pts took on the Wilmington Hammerheads FC (8-7-11), 35 pts at home for their final game of the season. Wilmington would walk away with the victory and a place in the playoffs, scoring four on the night as Dayton struggled to find the Hammerheads net. The Lions finished their season winning only on the road, but unable to win a game at home.


Wilmington would score in the 9’ when a foul was called on the Dayton 30 yard line. Sunny Jane would put the ball into the box and find the head of Samuel Ochoa. Jane would end the game with an assist and two goals, one off a direct kick in the 17’ that would hit the inside of the post and bounce in.


In the second half, the game was practically over in the first minute when Wilmington scored the 3-0 after a bad touch in the midfield and defense not stepping in left Williams no chance: 3-0. The Lions came back strong when Broekhuizen came in as forward. Clemens had the best chance 10 yards in front of goal but his shot went right into Stuver’s hands. In the 68th minute the game could have turned when Janneh was going one on one with Stuver and was brought down from behind in the penalty box but no pk (and red card) was called. Instead of the 3-1, Wilmington would finish off the match in the 82’ minute when Steven Miller would find Corben Bone and he would slide the ball into the far corner. Dayton would press until the end to find a goal but both Broekhuizen, Taylor Bowlin and Karamba Janneh missed.
