FC Tulsa Drops to Orange County 0-1

FC Tulsa News Release

Irvine, Calif. - In a physical affair between the two sides, FC Tulsa battled back in the second half, but it was not enough to cut the 1-0 deficit.

The first half was littered with yellow cards and FC Tulsa was on the receiving front. Three yellow cards were given to three different players. Orange County SC received one yellow card.

The pitch was littered with players being taken down, including Defender Rashid Tetteh who went down and subbed out with Bradley Bourgeois in only 17 minutes in.

The chippy match continued to ensue for the duration of the half while FC Tulsa and Orange County SC almost split possession, FC Tulsa holding 49% possession of the first half.

FC Tulsa had a glimpse at closing that gap when Midfielder Boubacar Diallo sent one that looked promising to flying into the goal but was sent away by the hands of the Orange County SC goalkeeper.

The yellow card frenzy continued into the second half with another for FC Tulsa and two more drawn for Orange County SC.

FC Tulsa tested the Orange County SC keeper Colin Shutler as Midfielder Justin Portillo produced what could have been the equalizer in a desperate effort but was saved by the goalkeeper.

A final effort to cut the deficit was made as Midfielder Nate Worth had a strong diving header in the final minute of the match that fell just to the left of the goal.

While FC Tulsa held 53% of the possession as full time hit, the second half failed to result in goals.

FC Tulsa moves to 1W-1L-0D in the 2024 USL Championship season.
