The Tulsa Roughnecks F.C. again travels to the Pacific Time Zone on Saturday, May 5 for its third straight away match, and its first-ever meeting with the Las Vegas Lights FC.  Kickoff on Saturday is scheduled for 10:00 p.m. CDT at Cashman Field in Las Vegas.  It will be Tulsa’s first-ever meeting with the USL expansion side.

The Roughnecks enter the match on a three-game unbeaten streak, but still looking for their first win of the season.  TRFC has 3 points on the season with a 0-3-3 record.  The three draws came in the last three matches as the Roughnecks finished the month of April without a defeat.

Las Vegas currently has 9 points with a 2-1-3 record.

Tulsa is 0-1-2 in three previous road matches this season while the Lights are 1-1-2 in four home games.

The Las Vegas roster includes two former TRFC players in forward Sammy Ochoa and midfielder Julian Portugal.  Ochoa is Tulsa’s all-time leading scorer with 20 career goals with the Roughnecks.

Saturday’s match marks the beginning of a busy month of May for TRFC.  Tulsa will play five USL regular season matches, in addition to at least one match in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. 

Fans can watch a live stream of Saturday’s game with a subscription to the new ESPN+.

Tulsa’s next home match is scheduled for Wednesday, May 9 when the Roughnecks host Reno 1868 FC at ONEOK Field.  Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. and tickets are available online at RoughnecksFC.com, at the stadium ticket office or by calling (918)744-5901.
