Having just ended their 14-game winless streak, the Tacoma Defiance have a chance to make it two wins in a row against The Oklahoma City Energy FC. Tacoma matchup pretty well with the Energy and are one of only three teams they have gotten a result against away from home this year. The Energy’s offensive and defensive stats are almost identical to Vegas Lights, the team the Defiance dismantled Wednesday, though the Energy are likely to have better discipline. Deshorn Brown is the Energy’s danger man in front of goal with 9. He is fed by fellow Jamaican Owayne Omar Gordon. The Defiance will need to cut off the connection between those two.
The Defiance will be without Justin Dhillon, who played with the First Team earlier today but they should able to send out the man who scored a brace one Wednesday, Alfonso Ocampo-Chavez. If he or Alec Diaz can put one in the back of the net and the back six can play how they did versus Las Vegas, the Defiance should be able to win two in a row for the first time this season.
