Utica City FC opened the weekend with a win, then a loss in a weekend trip to the Midwest.

After earning an 8-5 win against the St. Louis Ambush on Saturday, Utica fell 9-7 to the Kansas City Comets on Sunday afternoon, despite a hat trick from Ben Ramin and a two goal performance from Joey Tavernese.

Utica's 8-2 record through ten games is still best in the Eastern Division.

UCFC is on the road Friday against Harrisburg, but return home for a Sunday afternoon contest against Orlando at the Adirondack Bank Center.
