Oklahoma City Energy FC and Tulsa Roughnecks FC played to a 1-1 draw Saturday night at ONEOK Field in Tulsa.

Energy FC took an early lead with a goal by Christian Volesky in the opening minute of the match.

Tulsa responded 15 minutes later when a wide-open Joaquin Rivas scored from the top of the box.

The remainder of the match was extremely competitive, but neither team was able to convert on opportunities to take the lead. The in-state rivals' disdain for one another was also on display as the teams combined for 26 fouls and four yellow cards.

Energy FC returns to action when they take on Reno 1868 FC at Taft Stadium on Saturday starting at 7:30 p.m.
