The Rangers are taking to the road to face the Tulsa Roughnecks on Saturday night. First kick is at 7pm at ONEOK Field and like all USL Pro matches, it will be lived streamed on YouTube.
Tulsa was an expansion team just last year and they finished with an 11-11-6 record missing out on the playoffs by 3 points. They started off the season with a 2-0 win over Rio Grande Valley FC in the home opener last week. Goalkeeper Alex Mangels was the standout as he made 12 saves to preserve the shutout.
Swope Park also had a great start to the season as they defeated Portland Timbers 2 by a final score of 2-1 at Children's Mercy Park in the club's inaugural match. Benfica B product Kevin Oliveira started it off with a goal from the penalty spot and Daniel Salloi put home another in stoppage time.
Get to know the Roughnecks because this is the first of 4 matches against them this year. On May 14 and September 10 Tulsa will visit Swope Park and the Rangers will go back to ONEOK Field on August 6.
