Orange County SC will look to extend their current winning streak to six games as they visit Oklahoma to take on Tulsa Roughnecks FC on Saturday evening.
As typically seems to be the case for these teams, they’re meeting in opposing form. Orange County are in their best form of the season, looking to clinch a playoff berth and stay hot for the postseason, while Tulsa are near the bottom of the Western Conference standings, although they have only lost one of their last five games. The teams played a wild eight-goal game in their first meeting, in March, with Tulsa prevailing 5-3 in Orange County.
Like OCSC, Tulsa tend to spread their goals around, with Rodrigo da Costa leading the way with nine tallies, and Luca Lobo, who had a big game when the teams met last time, just behind him with seven. These games traditionally are real goalfests, sometimes blowout wins, sometimes more close, and don’t be surprised if that trend continues in Tulsa on Saturday. But Orange County, who have won at ONEOK Field before, will be confident they can get a result. Let’s see what happens!
Tale of the Tape:
Orange County SC: 42 points (11-8-9), 6th place in Western Conference; Goal Difference: +9; Last five games: W-W-W-W-W
Tulsa Roughnecks FC: 27 points (6-13-9), 16th place in Western Conference; Goal Difference: -21; Last five games: W-D-W-D-L
