Last night, OKC Energy FC headed up to Tulsa to take on the Golden Eagles of Oral Roberts University. Not a lot of coverage was to be had of the game, but here’s a few notes.
-Samir Badr was in goal throughout the entire match.
-Michael Thomas opened the scoring on a PK for the Energy in the 48th minute.
-The second goal for the Energy came in the 51st minute from either Tarek Morad or Paul Wyatt (conflicting reports).
-Kyle Greig added the third and fourth goals for the Energy.
-Badr’s clean sheet bid was lost in the 81st minute as Johnny Chavez scored the lone goal for Oral Roberts.
ORU plays in the same conference as University of Nebraska – Omaha, whom the Energy played against over the weekend. This gives them a little bit of an idea exactly where they are at now, and signs are pointing upward as the team begins to get comfortable with one another and the chemistry starts to build. The signings of Edmond-native Steven Perry and Adda Djeziri was made official this past week as well.
The Energy continue their preseason schedule on Friday night in Edmond as they take on the NCAA Division-II Northeastern State RiverHawks from Tahlequah.
