Energy FC Downs Tulsa Roughnecks FC 3-0 in Black Gold Derby

Michael Thomas, Sebastian Dalgaard and Colin Bonner each scored goals for OKC as Energy FC shut out Tulsa Roughnecks FC 3-0 and extended its current unbeaten streak to seven games Saturday night at Taft Stadium.

In first half stoppage time, a yellow card foul in the Tulsa box by Roughnecks FC’s Sammy Ochoa on OKC’s Wojciech Wojcik set up a penalty kick for Energy FC. OKC captain, Thomas, rolled the ensuing kick into the lower-left corner of the Tulsa net, opposite of the side Roughnecks keeper Jake Feener played, to give Energy FC a 1-0 lead and what would be the game’s deciding goal. Thomas’s penalty kick score was the first successful conversion for OKC in 2016, with the club missing all three of its previous chances.

After a slow start to the season, the Sonoma Sol have found themselves playing in the West Region final on Saturday. They will be squaring off against Albion SC Pros to vie for a chance to advance in the NPSL playoffs.

“It’s been a roller coaster of a season,” said Diego “Toluca” Lopez, who plays left wing for the team. “We just have to stay focused and take it one game at a time.”

The Sol started their season with a few losses and ties, but began to pick things up by the middle of the season.

One of the most challenging roles in soccer is that of the striker. Strikers have to perform in a very condensed part of the field where space and time are miniscule. I am often puzzled when I see players lining up in a line and running to the top of the box shooting the ball at the goal. The fact of the matter is that strikers are, frequently, facing the wrong way when they receive the ball, often with a defender or two right behind them and very little space to operate in. Training strikers in lines does not, really, replicate what they have to do in the real game.

When training strikers coaches should try and replicate the environment strikers encounter in and around the opponents penalty box. There are many fine striker exercises which best simulate the environment strikers operate in and I have added one from my book, “Developing The Elite American Soccer Player.”
