FC Tulsa Draws Against Phoenix Rising

FC Tulsa News Release

TULSA - Although FC Tulsa walked off ONEOK Field with a 3-3 draw against Phoenix Rising FC, they did not disappoint the crowd for their Home Opener of the 2024 season. Just 52 seconds into the game Forward Stefan Stojanovic made ONEOK Field roar with noise with a beautiful goal right past their goalkeeper.

For the next 38 minutes, the two sides had multiple shots on target that couldn't quite make it past either goalkeeper.

In the 38th minute, Phoenix Rising FC overtook FC Tulsa toward the end of the first half, with forward Remi Cabral scoring once off a penalty kick, then again before halftime, leaving the score 1-2 at the half.

Midfielder Edwin Laszo established himself well for his debut start at FC Tulsa by evening up the score with a header from Midfielder Justin Portillo's corner kick in the 38th minute.

It was almost déjà vu as Defender Alexis Souahy had a header from Portillo's corner to give FC Tulsa the lead only 7 minutes later.

Phoenix Rising's Midfielder Emil Cuello was shown a red card just a few minutes after that lead goal leaving them down a player for the final 30 minutes.

Two yellow cards were shown simultaneously for FC Tulsa's Defender Bradley Bourgeois and Midfielder Milo Yosef in the 70th minute which led to a penalty kick for Phoenix Rising. The penalty kick awarded to Phoenix was taken by Forward Dariusz Formella which resulted in their equalizer.

Even with the draw result, the 5,135 fans that came to ONEOK Field for the Home Opener brought the energy from kickoff to the final whistle.
