  1. I see the GK got the MOM. What kind of impact do they have in the game? Is there a real difference, or are the saves somewhat automatic?

    • Great question, Russ! When a player gets a shot, the first thing you roll for is whether or not the shot is on goal (meaning, on target or not). If the shot is on goal, you then roll again and find the result of the shot from the Goal Keeper’s card. In this game, Real Salt Lake had 6 shots on goal (that includes the penalty kick), and Busch saved 4 of them. Two of them were right in a row in the 73rd and 74th minute when a RSL goal could’ve put the game out of reach. Busch also had a “great outlet” result off the Special Action chart that led to a shot from Area A for Bobby Convey. I also liked that the only goal he allowed in open play came off a corner kick header shot (the other he allowed was the PK). All in all, I thought his card made the most difference in the game.
