Colorado Springs, CO – With a very close game against FC Tulsa, the Switchbacks were able to secure the win in added stoppage time, ending with a final score of 1-0.

During the first half of the match, the boys in black and blue came out with a bang by having four shots on target, a total of 156 accurate passes, and 14 touches in the opposition box. Defensively, the team won four tackles, intercepted four times, and held 62.4% possession.

Going into the second half, the intensity kicked in to see which team would score first. With two total big chances thanks to #10 Zach Zandi and #9 Ronaldo Damus, everyone was on the edge of their seats. In the 89′, FC Tulsa’s Head Coach, Mario Sanchez received an automatic red card due to foul and abusive language. With the clock ticking closer to the end, there were only a few more opportunities to score. Damus was set in the middle of the box, tipping the ball to the right, letting Zandi rocket it into the back of the net in the 90+3′.

Ultimately we found a way tonight to make it about us, and we are delighted about that.”
