HAMTRAMCK, Mich. – Lilley Bosley and Lily Jeakle are both going into their sophomore years.


Bosley at the University of Michigan and Jeakle at Lake Orion High School.


Both have something in common besides being sophomores at different levels and teammates for an undefeated team.


Bosley scored what proved to be a game-winner in the fifth minute and Jeakle added a second half tally in Detroit City FC’s 3-0 shutout of Aurora, Illinois-based River Light FC in the USL-W League Central Conference semifinals at Keyworth Stadium in Hamtramck Friday night.




It was the first USL-League Two postseason goals for their USL-W League career, as well as Emily Pagett, who finished with a goal and an assist and scored the third goal Friday night.


Detroit City FC, which won the Great Lakes Division of the 70-team USL-W League at 10-0-2 during the regular season, advances to the USL-W League Central Conference finals Sunday afternoon to face defending USL-W League national champion Indy Eleven at a time to be determined. Indy Eleven, based out of the Indianapolis area, advanced in the first game Friday at Keyworth with a 2-1 victory over Minnesota Aurora FC.


It also marked Detroit City FC’s first-ever postseason win in their first postseason appearance in the USL-W League.


Bosley, a rare two-time Michigan Miss Soccer winner while at Rochester Stoney Creek High School (2022, 2023), went on to earn All-Big Ten Conference Freshman Team honors last fall at the University of Michigan. She scored what proved to be the game winner just five minutes into the contest. Making a run down the right side, Bosley found space in the box and volleyed in a high cross from Kate Childers (Grand Blanc/Michigan Hawks/University of Minnesota) and inside the left goal post for a 1-0 advantage.



Detroit City FC (11-0-2) added on two more goals after halftime to prevail.


Jeakle, who is also a standout youth player for the Nationals SC Girls Academy and a USWYNT prospect in her age group, tacked on a second goal. Pagett (Western Michigan University) served a cornerkick from the left corner into traffic and Jeakle was there about six yards out to leap high and head it home in the 67th minute.


In the 77th minute, Emily Cain picked off a pass, drove down the left side before slotting a pss over to the center of the park to an awaiting Pagett. In rhythm, Pagett uncorked a 23-yeard rifle high above traffic that sailed just underneath the crossbar.




Michigan State University graduate Gabby Schriver notched the shutout between the pipes for Detroit City FC, which recorded its ninth shutout in 13 games this season and outscored the opposition 27-5 this season.


Detroit City FC is now on a six-game win streak and has posted clean sheets in five of its last eight games. the Le Rouge have set numerous franchise records in the USL-W League this season.
