”Mr. Glass” Fragility/Old Man Injury Award: Roberts had a short spell off due to injury and was able to return. With several available subs there was more than enough switching to keep people generally injury free.
Old Man of the Match: Nice result as good performances by most of the squad. The nod goes to Stower with two assists, and ton of running on the wing at both ends of the pitch. The impressive spread of food at his place after the game and the forethought to have taped the England game ensured his top finish. Honorable mention to Jones who proved his versatility by scoring a goal at striker and earning a shutout by providing some needed pace in the back line. Honorable mention to Pattison who had an impactful run out across the entire midfield and scored a lovely curling shot placed into the upper far side netting to give Legends a needed cushion. Honorable mention to Frazier for several quality sliding/diving saves, several clearances from above the 18, commanding the area, and generally a very reliable performance.
Old Man of the Bar: N/A
El Presidente (Old Men who don’t make it to game but come to the bar): N/A, but several additional wives and kids for the post-game at Stower’s.
Statistic of the week: Jones played most of game in defense and earned 2pts for the shutout, while in a brief rotation at striker earned additional points with the game winning goal. Team-wise, it was the Legends 50th lifetime victory.
Team Bar Showing: N/A
Team Bar Night: 2 out of 5. No turnout to pub from deepest Brooklyn, but had a good turnout at the lovely spread of food and drink put on by the Stower’s.
