NISA Challenge Cup: Detroit City FC claims second trophy

Detroit City FC, the 2020 fall champion, added a second NISA trophy, beating host Chattanooga FC, 3-0, to win the 2021 Legends Cup.

The reward for the spring pre-season tournament champion: a berth in the 2020-21 semifinals June 30 against the spring winner. Since Detroit City FC is already in the final, scheduled for the July 3 at Keyworth Stadium, Chattanooga FC will advance to the semifinals as the Legends Cup runner-up.

Le Rouge opened the scoring with goals by tournament MVP Matt Lewis and Max Todd in the first half. Kevin Venegas scored the third goal in the 90th minute.

Next up: The spring regular season begins on Saturday. The nine teams will play a single round-robin schedule (eight games).
