In the 54th minute, it was DKSC who was able to notch one in the back of the net to make the game 1-0. The game would go on for another ten minutes until the 64th minute, when Bri Amos would put one in the back of the goal to tie the game back up to a score of 1-1. Tulsa SC found a burst of energy as the minutes ticked away, trying to put another one in to secure the win, but all chances fell short, and the match ended in a 1-1 draw. Tulsa SC will head home with 1 point in the season opener vs. DKSC Badtop.
"It took us a little bit to settle down, with it being the first game. But, we came out strong in the 2nd half, despite conceding first, and really took the game to them. It’s a great sign to see our ladies fight back after going down 1-0 to tie the game up and come home with a point. Great first game against a strong opponent." -Coach Aaron Crouch
