Virginia Legacy 76 ended its season in a disappointment, dropping a 4-0 home match to ASA Charge under soggy conditions Saturday evening.
ASA Charge jumped out to an early lead as Thomas King scored unassisted in the fifth minute of play.
Mental errors sank Legacy 76, having called for five yellow cards in the game that resulted in two players being sent off later in the match.
Legacy 76 center defender Kendal Pressey drew a yellow card in the 42nd minute and started the second half with his second yellow of the game, which led to an automatic ejection.
Less than four minutes after Pressey’s ejection from the game, ASA Charge found the back of the net again off a deflection from midfielder Patrick Pato.
Center midfielder Alec Faulker also got hit with back-to-back yellow cards in the 63rd and 74th minutes, resulting in the second ejection for Legacy 76, which was forced to play the final 16 minutes with only nine players on the pitch.
In a similar fashion to the first ejection, ASA Charge took advantage of the extra space on the field with King netting his second goal of the game, this time off a Cubay Wilson cross in the 78th minute.
With the game slipping away from Legacy 76, Kjell Crooke of ASA Charge put the finishing touches on the game, scoring the final goal in the 87th minute and ending Legacy 76’s season.
The loss brings Legacy 76’s final record to 1-7-2, finishing second-to-last in the National Premier Soccer League’s Mid Atlantic Conference just one point ahead of ASA Charge.
