At the start of the second half, Coach Trevor James made two substitutions.  Cyrus Saydee and Benedek Tanyi (who had subbed in for Roddy Green in the 25th minute) came out, replaced by Max Todd and Patricio Batello Faz.  It was Pato’s first appearance in the rouge and gold, and it was his goal and assist that propelled City to the 2-0 win.

In the 87th minute, Javi Steinwascher dribbled the ball along the left flank then cut toward the net.  Near the end-line, he passed the ball out front to a wide open Pato, who fired it past Kevin Gonzalez, creating an insurmountable 2-0 lead.
