Energy FC Takes Down Austin

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Kyle Greig scored the match's only goal to lift OKC Energy FC past the Austin Aztex Sunday night at Taft Stadium. The win was OKC's fourth consecutive.

In the 72nd minute of play, OKC's Michael Harris sent a cross into the Austin box that Aztex forward Andres Cuero lifted high above the Austin six-yard box. After the ball landed beside Aztex keeper Devin Perales, Greig slid and tipped it just beyond the goal line to give OKC a 1-0 lead. The goal was Greig's third of the year in USL play and fifth overall, with two in U.S. Open Cup play.

Energy FC keeper Evan Newton saved all four shots on goal he faced, including a diving stop on a shot by Austin's Fernando Timbo in the 30th minute that was ultimately the Aztex' best chance of the match.

Austin outshot OKC 10-9 in the match and held a distinct advantage in corner kicks at 8-2.

Energy FC is undefeated over their last five games, with USL wins over Austin and Sacramento, and U.S. Open Cup wins over in-state rival Tulsa Roughnecks FC and Midland/Odessa of the Premier Development League.

OKC's next match is Friday, June 5, when it faces Portland Timbers FC 2 in a 7 p.m. start at Taft Stadium. The first 1,000 in attendance will receive free t-shirts compliments of the American Lung Association, and local food trucks will be in attendance serving a unique variety of concessions.
