SMK vs Legends

Recap

In an exciting season opener, the Legends were forced to a 1-1 tie by a resolute SMK side at the Monsignor Bonner High School Stadium in Drexel Hill, PA.

The Legends started the game well, holding onto possession in the first 15 minutes before going ahead in the 20th minute.

A through pass from  Ebere Goodluck to Alexander “Tashiki” Sonpon saw the striker do the “Bergkamp” against his marker before slotting the ball at the back of the net.

After conceding, SMK reacted right away by pressuring the Legends and that paid off in the 35th when their striker beat the offside trap and equalized for his side.

The score would remain tied at 1-1 at halftime.

Both teams came gunning after the break and had opportunities to put the game at bed but Ralph Jacobs, though clearly hurt, made series of one-on-one saves to denied SMK while at the other end, first “Tashiki” and then captain Peter “Zizou” Jarbo, were guilty of missing clear-cut chances to give the Legends a much-needed win.

The Legends will look to get their first win of the season next Saturday, March 27 against YTP FC. Kickoff is at 12:30 p.m. at the Cristos Rey High School in Philadelphia, PA.
