Fort Worth unable to overcome first half goals
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. --Oklahoma City FC knocked off the Fort Worth Vaqueros 2-1 Friday night.
Oklahoma City FC (3-0) picked up a pair of first half goals from Stephen Cummins and Kevon Cabello to take a 2-0 lead into the half.
The Vaqueros (0-2-1) pulled one back on a goal from Damien Rosales off a Hilton Ngwa assist in the 55th minute.
However, the comeback effort was stunted when the referee issued a second yellow card to Tyler Humphrey in the 62nd minute. Playing short-handed for the final 28 minutes Fort Worth took control of the match in the second half but just couldn’t find the net.
“We started out slow and got punished,” Vaqueros coach Mark Snell said. “Despite that we took command in the second half. Hilton was probably our man of the match. Not only did he get the assist, but he set up another great chance. We fought all the way to the end.”
Fort Worth continues its road trip at 7:30 p.m. Saturday by heading north to Joplin, Mo. to face the Demize (0-1).
