Roughnecks Tie in El Paso 2-2
El Paso, TX - (Wednesday, September 4th) The Tulsa Roughnecks travelled to Texas to take on El Paso Locomotive in the USL Western Conference Championship play. The first half did not see much action until the 41st minute when Tulsa Roughnecks opened the scoring from a Marlon header. Marlon kept up his impressive start as a Roughnecks player scoring with a header from an Altamirano cross. The Tulsa Roughnecks entered the half 1-0 up.
The second half started off bright with Altamirano grabbing a goal of his own, this time from a Marlon cross. Altamirano scored a rocket of a shot from outside the 18-yard box that the El Paso goalkeeper could not get close to. El Paso answered the Tulsa Roughnecks' early second half goal in the 80th minute with a header by Josue Gomez making it 2-1. Their second goal quickly followed a minute later by the El Paso Locomotive leading scorer, Jerome Kiesewetter. Despite both teams looking for that game winning goal, tonight's match ended in a 2-2 tie.
Tulsa Roughnecks will remain in Texas as they travel to play the Rio Grande Valley Toros this Saturday. The team returns to ONEOK field Saturday, September 21st to face Orange County SC.
