Goals: 1-1: Sobczak Assist Rosenbloom (long cross from sideline at about the 35yd line which found Sobczak in stride at 18yd line making a direct run in center of field. One touch to control and a second touch to cleanly beat the GK from about 10yds out)
2-1: D’Andrea (PK) Assist Sobczak

Red Cards: None
Mike D’s aka No Shows: Unfortunately two scratches in the wee hours before 8am match and two no shows: Casanova, Denari, Vale, Teesdale. Thank goodness management had coordinated a full 16.5, so the reduction still left Legends with 12.5.
Conboy’s aka Reverse Mike D’s: None
”Mr. Glass” Fragility/Old Man Injury Award: None, despite being short on subs.
Old Man of the Match: On one hand both strikers (Sobczak & Sawyer) were a handful for the opposition with their hard work, and had tons of touches and shots. On the other hand they both struggled to convert possession in the final third and in the penalty area into actual goals. Props to the Eintracht GK and the posts/bar who combined for double digit saves on what could have been 4-5 Legends goals on another day. Honorable mention to Sobczak who scored the tying goal and got dragged down inside the box to earn a clear penalty call which was converted for the winner. Honorable mention to the Legends defense and GK, who kept the capable Eintracht midfield and strikers away from having too many clear chances, and kept out the equalizer as Eintracht sent numbers forward in the waning minutes on several counters and several corners.
