The Legends competed in their first-ever match this season when they traveled to Conshohocken to battle West Chester Predators in the quarter-finals of the Eastern Pennsylvania O30 State Cup.
The Legends equalized twice during the regular period.
Predators took an early lead in the first half after breaking an offside trap before MOTM Mohammed Mayah equalized from midfield-maestro Prince Jarbo’s free kick which had hit the underside of the goal.
The score would remained tied at 1-1 at the break.
The Legends started slowly again like the first half and they were made to pay from another offside trap broken by the Predators who went ahead 2-1 in the 55th minute.
Both teams had chances to seal the match in the regular period but goalkeeper Ralph Jacobs was excellent in goal for the Legends, making series of exceptional saves, while winger Mitchell Torh and forward Allison were guilty of missing some great chances at the other end of the pitch.
With tired legs, the Legends battled to the end of the regular 90-minute period, first half of extra time, and were looking forward to penalty kicks before the Predators capitalized from a turn-over and scored their winner with the last kick of the match in the 119th minute.
