Club Hosts Two Matches at Toyota Field Next Week

San Antonio FC and OKC Energy FC tied 0-0 at Taft Stadium on Saturday night, marking the third draw between the two clubs in their third and final matchup of the USL regular season as well as their fifth draw in six encounters overall.

“OKC is a very tough place to play,” SAFC Head Coach Darren Powell said. “The guys worked extremely hard to earn the point and earning a clean sheet on the road is a positive. Now our job is to prepare for a quick turnaround to play at home in front of our supporters, and we look forward to being home on Wednesday evening.”

SAFC goalkeeper Diego Restrepo recorded his ninth clean sheet of the season and 12th overall for the team, making three saves along the way. Restrepo is currently in the lead for the USL Golden Glove with a 0.62 goals against average and is tied for the most clean sheets in the league.

Midfielder Omar Gordon made his club debut for the Silver and Black. Gordon started and played 90 minutes after signing with the Alamo City club on August 17. The Jamaica native recorded one shot on the night and completed 69 percent of his passes.

San Antonio FC is now 11-2-9 this season. The club will return to action on Wednesday, August 23 as they host Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2 at Toyota Field, and will then host Portland Timbers 2 just three days later on Saturday, August 26.
