Oklahoma City Energy FC Last Match Summary (v Pachuca, Friendly):
CJ Cocharan in the Oklahoma City goal managed a phenomenal 13 saves, but much like San Antonio last week OKC Energy FC fell on penalties to Liga MX opposition. It was a strong defensive effort from Oklahoma City as they held out a determined Pachuca side. Two other stars were Miguel and Daniel Gonzalez who were the most attacking players for OKC.
Statistical Note: Since May 1st, San Antonio FC has only scored multiple goals in just one match, June 17th against Tulsa Roughnecks, reflecting where the base of their season record sits.
Key to the Match: Defense. As always for San Antonio FC, one of the strongest defensive teams in USL history, they will use that to be the key for the win, which may not be what a nationally televised match wants but it has been working. Add to that the phenomenal defensive performance from OKC last week and it is not set to be the most exciting match of all time.
