S2 goes into this match on a three match unbeaten streak which is saying something for a club with only five points (all five from those three matches). The Rave Green have two straight shutouts going into the match against the Oklahoma side that is 1-1-1 and sits as one of only two teams behind S2 in the Western Conference. Defensively they've given up two goals in each of the first two matches, had a match postponed, and won against new side Swope Park Rangers. S2 has given plenty of hope.
New signings, defender Brandon John and midfielders Jordy Delem and Willy Kapawa are all eligible to play tonight. OKC is coached by Jimmy Nielsen and thankfully has not picked up the tongue-out look. This will be the first road match for the Energy this year and features former Husky, Michael "Flip Throw" Harris.
Keys to the Game:
- Integrate new signings, we have plenty they could see time.
- Finish. Get shots on goal and convert. Mansaray and Craven need to take control near the box and get the ball in.
- Limit second balls. Harris can create chances with flip throws and OKC will try to exploit the confusion on loose balls that is created, stopping creation from these is key.
