Tormenta FC continued its playoff push tonight against second-place Lansing Ignite, who have clinched their playoff spot and are looking to secure home-field advantage as well. Tormenta drew tonight 1-1 with Lansing after a second-half equalizer by Mikie Rowe.
Despite several big shots from Tormenta in the first half by Alex Morrell and Charlie Dennis, Lansing pulled ahead in the 46th minute with a goal by Nick Moon.
