With the Bucks trailing Des Moines Menace 3-2 in the 120th minute, goalkeeper Gustavo Vasconcelos pulled off a miracle. Subbed on as a forward, Vasconcelos received an incredible ball from Justin Ingram, and chipped the Menace keeper with the outside of his boot on his first touch to send the game to a penalty shootout.
Trejo’s strike early in the Western Conference final helped the Force to victory. He received the ball outside the box before unleashing a left-footed rocket that flew in off the underside of the crossbar.
Ortiz was given time and space about 30 yards from goal in the Southern Conference semi-final, and he made the most of it. His strike from distance left the SC United Bantams keeper with no chance.
A perfectly-timed run created the opportunity for this smooth finish from Vargas, who rushed onto a layoff from a teammate and calmly slotted the ball into the far corner for the Fusion’s first goal of the Western Conference semi-final against then-defending champions Calgary Foothills.
