Stepping up is a simple concept, but it is harder to do when a championship is on the line and it is in front of the home crowd.
Lansing United stepped up on the biggest stage of their season so far by earning a 2-1 victory over the Fort Pitt Regiment in 120 minutes.
“It’s unbelievably tough. I mean you watch high level tournaments, players have a minimum of three days to rest, so for us to turn around and come back a day after, speaks to how well these guys have taken care of themselves throughout the year,” United head coach Eric Rudland said. “The quick turn around is just the passion and pride they have playing for Lansing United.”
