Tulsa Roughnecks FC vs. FC Wichita

MAY 16 | 3-4 | Hurricane Soccer & Track Stadium; Tulsa, Okla.


Tulsa Roughnecks FC (USL) 3, FC Wichita (NPSL) 4
Three separate times FC Wichita trailed on Wednesday night. But on each occasion, the amateurs answered the call. FC Wichita overcame three deficits to stun Tulsa Roughnecks FC, 4-3, in the Second Round of the U.S. Open Cup. After a first half that saw Tulsa emerge with a 2-1 advantage, Franck Tayou put FC Wichita back on level terms in the 48th minute. The two sides traded goals in the 52nd and 60th minute before Tayou scored one of the goals of the tournament thus far. With the score locked at three goals apiece in second-half stoppage time, the striker pulled down a deep cross in the box, pushed it away from the ‘keeper, and snuck in a shot from an impossible angle for the winner. Tayou ripped his jersey off in celebration, his heroics clinching the upset and a date with NTX Rayados in the Third Round next Wednesday.
