It may have been the wildest ending to an MLS playoff game. A sudden death shootout between Orlando Health and NYC Football Club. After Orlando City’s Goalkeeper Pedro Gallese was sent off in penalties after being caught off the line of review, Orlando couldn’t sub in another Goal Keeper.

They decided to take their chances with defender Rodrigio Schlegel sending him in as goalie. In an unfamiliar spot, Rodrigio made the game-winning save. Orlando beat NYC Football club 6-5 in penalty shots knocking them out of the playoffs on Saturday. Orlando City will now progress to the Eastern Conference Semi-finals which they will play on November 29th.
