FC Wichita vs Gretna Elite: 2 PM – Stryker Sports Complex, Wichita, KS – No Stream Announced

The importance of this match depended on whether or not SLSG managed to get a point against Gretna Elite on Wednesday. And they did with a draw giving SLSG the Central Conference Championship. This match will now be for just pride as neither side can go for the Conference title.

Detroit City FC vs Lansing United: 6:30 PM – Keyworth Stadium, Hamtramck, MI – Eleven Sports

Midwest United vs Muskegon Risers: 11 AM – Aquinas College Athletic Field, Grand Rapids, MI – Eleven Sports

The final match of the regular season in either the Midwest Conference, this will more of less be a test run for North Division Champions, Midwest United before heading into the Conference Playoffs that are scheduled to take place July 15th to 18th. As fore the Risers this is really just attempting to get one more win before the end of the season.
