Conboy’ s aka Reverse Mike D’s:  None

”Mr. Glass” Fragility/Old Man Injury Award:  None

Old Man of the Match:  Conboy.  Legends were dismal before his late arrival giving up 2 goals in 10mins by playing very timid and letting AC Glen Cove be first to every thru ball, bouncing ball, and every other kind of 50/50 ball or worse many 60/40 balls.  Conboy played great and inspired those around him to raise their level of play.  Game was actually pretty even after the first 15mins.  Ho norable mention to D’Andrea who despite the crappy pitch was able control the ball and keep possession, and if not for an unbelievable foot save by the Glen Cove GK would have put the Legends on the score sheet in the first half.

Old Man of the Bar:  Resnik & Ochoa stayed thru with OldBoys until they left (OldBoys arrived 2hrs after Legends)

El Presidente (new award for Old Men who don’t make it to game but come to the bar): None.

Team Bar Showing: 5 out of 14 (36%)  (Resnik, Ochoa, Lerner, Hodges, Murray)

Team Bar Night:  2.5 out of 5:  Once again Resnik and Ochoa had a great extended showing, but overall low attendance and low longevity.

Team (No new profiles this week):

John Lerner (GK), Mark Resnik (DF), Marc Walby (DF),  Lars Murray (DF), Juan Pablo Etchegaray (DF), Dan Bernoske (DF), Da n Ochoa, Chris Muro, Willian D’Andrea, Panu Purhonen, Tony Vamvouris, Milan Gupta, John Hodges, Mike Conboy
