Grand Rapids FC will finish the season at Houseman Field this Friday night as they take on AFC Ann Arbor in a matchup of the playoff teams from 2016. GRFC (6-5-2, 20pts) lost to AFC (10-1-1, 31 pts) earlier in the season 2-1 in Ann Arbor and the Boys in Blue will look to get some revenge as they took a 1-0 lead but couldn’t see the game out. The two clubs have similar roots as they both were founding members of the Great Lakes Premier League and kicked off in the same year. The all-time results are very close, with both teams claiming two wins, two losses, and a draw. GRFC defeated AFC 3-1 at home last year to clinch the 2016 Great Lakes Conference Title and 5-1 during both teams inaugural seasons in 2015.
