Ouch, that’s a yellow card (was not called as a foul)
belmarchance
Nice plays from LaGrassa and Ríos, correct placement from Belmar and just a good save

This is a penalty 100% of the time, except on the night.

“You might be bigger than Darnell, but you are not bigger than me.”
davisheavytouch
Outstanding 1-2 from Davis and Winn, just a heavy touch prevents a serious chance.
davismegandpen
Great meg from Davis. You aren’t getting it called most of the time inside the box, but that’s unquestionably a foul by Johnson on the tug
davisslide
Davis saves the day
jonesfoul
Silly foul from Jones, who didn’t need to make that play.

Meanwhile, he’s 6-4 and can do this

Great forward thinking from King. Honestly, really nice defensive recovery by the Legion.

Backheel feed by LaGrassa, Ríos can’t fire

Loose play at the back. Bourgeois has to either win that ball back or drop in recovery – the stakes for not winning it back are shown (and Pickens bails him out).

King with a similar weak chested ball that Pickens bails out.
pickensleavesline
Pickens confidence in coming off his line.
rioscelebration
Ríos, to me, es un crack
rioshead
Nice technique by Davis, Ríos can’t quite run onto the header.
riospen
Uno a cero
winnchance
The opening sequence probably should have led to a goal.
winnearnsgoal
The entire sequence with Winn #winning the penalty starts with a great press trigger by the winger.
winnpen
No complaints about the penalty shout here. Femi wasn’t carded, but sweeping the high boot through the back of the leg probably should have made it one.
