Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (May 25, 2019) – The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC were defeated by OKC Energy FC 1-0 on Saturday night behind Owayne Omar Gordon's early goal.
Coming off of the Four Corner's Cup loss to New Mexico United, the Switchbacks were looking to get back on track in Oklahoma City. However, the Energy would get on the board first when a ball played over the top would find a streaking Owayne Omar Gordon who volleyed his powerful shot past Andre Rawls in the 15th minute. The Switchbacks had their opportunity to equalize from the penalty spot in the second half but Jordan Burt pulled his penalty just wide of the bottom corner. That would prove to be the best chance of the night for the Switchbacks as OKC Energy would hold on for the 1-0 win on Saturday night.
The Switchbacks return to Weidner Field on Wednesday, May 29th for a rematch with New Mexico United in the third round of the U.S. Open Cup. The Switchbacks' next home league game is June 1st when Fresno FC comes to town on cap giveaway night to the first 1,000 fans in attendance, courtesy of Pikes Peak Brewing Company.
