Energy FC Back Home Saturday to Take on Austin Bold FC
Energy FC (8th, 8-8-9, 33 points) return home after a come-from-behind, 4-2 win against Portland Timbers 2 at Providence Park in Week 24. Christian Eissele scored a brace to earn USL Championship Team of the Week honors, while Mekeil Williams and Christian Ibeagha added their first goals of the season.
The Greens take on Austin Bold FC (4th, 10-8-6, 36 points) for the first time at Taft Stadium Saturday night. The expansion club defeated Energy FC 2-1 at Bold Stadium on May 10. That night, Deshorn Brown scored the opening goal before Bold FC grabbed two second-half goals.
Energy FC will be looking to pick up three points at Taft Stadium for the first time since the 1-0 win over Colorado Springs on May 25.
OKC will be without Josh Garcia after the midfielder was called up the Dominican Republic national team for three upcoming fixtures.
