Brandon Eaton (MAD) – FMFC’s Eaton timed his challenge perfectly to deny a close-range chance for Legion FC, deflecting the ball off the end wall and away.

Raul Gonzalez (MEM) – Gonzalez’s timing on the boost button allowed him to cut off a long-range effort by FC Tulsa on a shot that was headed to the bottom-right corner of the net.
