Saturday, October 13
vs. Seattle Sounders 2
Kickoff – 7:00 PM at ONEOK Field
The Tulsa Roughnecks FC will look to end the season on a high note when it hosts the Seattle Sounders 2 on Saturday, October 13 in the 2018 season finale. It is Roughnecks Pop Socket Giveaway Night at ONEOK Field with kickoff for the match scheduled for 7:00 p.m. in downtown Tulsa.
The first 500 fans through the gates will receive a Roughnecks Pop Socket presented by Osage Casino & Hotel, 2 Works for You and 97.1 The Sports Animal.
In addition, the Roughnecks will be hosting the “Rising Above Cancer Auction” that will benefit Assistance in Health Care. The silent auction will feature memorabilia from TRFC and various MLS and USL clubs.
Saturday’s match will be the second of two meetings with the Sounders 2. Back on September 5, TRFC and S2 battled to an entertaining 4-4 draw. The Roughnecks had a commanding 4-1 lead in the game thanks to Jesus Ferreira recording the first hat trick in the history of the franchise. But Seattle closed the gap in the final 30 minutes of the match, and scored the equalizer on the final shot of the game.
The Roughnecks are coming off a 1-0 defeat to Saint Louis FC. After giving up a goal in the first half, Tulsa controlled 62% of the second-half possession, but were unable to produce the final shot. TRFC is now 0-4-1 in its last five matches, with its last win coming on September 15.
The Sounders 2 will enter the match after a 2-2 draw against the Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC. S2 is 0-3-2 in its last five matches, and are without a win away from home at 0-14-2. They currently have 22 points on the year, while Tulsa has 21 points in the Western Conference.
Tickets for Saturday’s game are available online at RoughnecksFC.com, or over the phone at (918) 744-5901 or in person at the ONEOK Field Ticket Office. Youth players who wear their team’s jersey can obtain any ticket in the seating bowl or on the grass berm for just $5.
