Every Sunday, Boston Globe photographer Stan Grossfeld asks the subject of one of his photos to explain what’s happening in the shot
Up today: New England Revolution midfielder Kelyn Rowe saves a breakaway by Montreal Impact Patrice Bernier during a 4-2 loss at Gillette Stadium.
Said Rowe: “Yeah, I was tracking back. In my mind I was thinking I got to get back. The only thing between him and the goal was me. I had to get in the way of the ball. I’ve got to lay down the body so I can get a foul. I could stop running that way. It’s just one of those things where you have to do it no matter what.
“He did well not to kick me too much but obviously if you put your body in front of a player, he’s going to fall on top of you and leg you on the fly. There was a foul but no card.
“It definitely hurt. He got me on the ankle a couple of times, and on the shoulder obviously he pulled that back. You have to make the play for the team. I didn’t mind doing it. We saved a one-on-one so it could have been a goal or a big save. Either way it didn’t happen because of it. I’m happy about that.”
