Legacy created an avalanche of opportunities but it took nearly to halftime before finding the net. We had several issues including missed 1v1's, a million corner kicks, hitting the post, missed empty nets, and some tremendous goalkeeping that all made it hard for Legacy to get ahead on the scoreboard. Persistence paid off eventually with Legacy scoring from various places and in various ways. The defense did a great job playing patiently to secure the shutout including some solid work by the goalkeepers.
