What a close one...both teams worked hard for it...as Legacy wracked up injuries and cramps, and Chai was gone for the second game due to international duties, the bench became more and more important...and they were equal to the task. Mullins came off the bench to score in the worsening conditions in the 63rd minute. Five minutes later it was back to level off a long direct kick and a striker who beat the LHS keeper to the ball with his head for an empty netter. Into OT it went, and it took 7 minutes to find the game winner when Blake came off the bench to receive a Jake Maurek pass, turn, and split two defenders and beat the keeper far post from the top of the D.
