Legacy 76 clinches playoff date in Connecticut for NPSL region semis

Former William and Mary men’s soccer player Ryan Flesch netted the go-ahead goal late in extra time as Legacy 76 captured the National Premier Soccer League Mid-Atlantic Conference playoff championship Saturday with a 3-1 victory over Frederick FC at Hood College in Frederick, Md.

Legacy 76 began the four-team playoffs as the lowest seed but won road games against Virginia Beach City FC, one of the NPSL's highest-rated defensive teams, and then Frederick to capture the trophy.

Legacy 76 advanced to the Northeast Region semifinals and will play at Yale University’s Reese Stadium Friday night against Elm City Express of New Haven, Conn. in the next phase.
