Orange County SC venture to their latest stop on their tour of Oklahoma, as they will face Tulsa Roughnecks on Saturday afternoon in Tulsa, looking for their second win in as many games.
OC are coming off by far their best performance of the young season, a 1-0 win over OKC Energy FC on Wednesday. Thomas Enevoldsen opened his USL account with the winner, and Braeden Cloutier rotated his lineup, likely with the two-game week in mind, to considerable success.
The question now is how many players will stay on the field for this game against Tulsa, and how many will come back in to keep legs fresh. Orange County are facing a Tulsa side that are off to the worst start in the Western Conference, although it’s absolutely fair to note that they have only played two games and are only -2 in goal difference, so it’s too early to give sweeping statements about them.
Still, coming off the boost that Wednesday’s win gives Cloutier’s side, coupled with the tough start for the Roughnecks, and OC have to believe they have a decent shot of getting another result. Can they manage it in the springtime Tulsa sunshine? We’ll find out soon enough.
Tale of the Tape:
Orange County SC: 4 points (1-1-1), 6th place in Western Conference; Goal Difference: 0; Last three games: W-L-D
Tulsa Roughnecks FC: 0 points (0-2-0), 17th place in Western Conference; Goal Difference: -2; Last two games: L-L
