Midfielder Jasson Ramos Carpio helped the Tulsa Roughnecks end a four-match losing streak on Friday night with his best performance of the 2016 campaign. On Tuesday, Carpio was rewarded for his performance with a spot on the USL Team of the Week.
It is the first such honor for the young Guatemalan who is in his first season in the USL.
In Friday’s 2-2 draw with the Los Angeles Galaxy II, the Roughnecks spotted Los Dos a two-goal lead before battling back, and Carpio was responsible for the match-tying goal. In the 47th minute, his curling corner kick deflected off the glove of Galaxy keeper Bennett Sneddon and into the back of the net.
In addition, Carpio was an offensive threat through much of the match with several impressive runs into the LA defense.
Last week’s meeting was the first of two straight between the clubs. This Friday, June 24, the Roughnecks will travel to Los Angeles for the return leg of the two meetings between the sides.
