NYCFC Playoff Train Continues

New York City FC still showed some shakiness in their defense giving up two quick goals in the second half, but in end were able to secure the win over the San Jose Quakes 3-2 at home at Yankee Stadium.   Ned Grabavoy tallied two goals while David Villa scored his 16th of the season to clinch the win.

For this game I shot both halves from the first base line dugout with two remotes firing, a 14mm wide angle behind the goal, and a 70-200mm on a super-clamp shooting down from the upper deck.  Remotes are always hit or miss, and usually rely on close play in front of the goal, but I felt pretty good about a handful of the shots.  Hope you like!
