SAFC’s open cup bid ends with heartbreaking loss to Tulsa


San Antonio FC’s Open Cup run came to an end with a loss to Tulsa Roughnecks FC in penalty kicks shootout on Thursday night.

Neither team could find the back of the net for over 120 minutes, so the match would head to penalty kicks. SAFC fell 7-6 through eight rounds of PKs, ending their bid for the U.S. Open Cup.

“It was a very tight game,” SAFC Head Coach Darren Powell said. “We felt we had chances in both halves that we could have taken advantage of. We defended solidly again and it went down to the wire, and it ended in eight rounds of penalties.”

San Antonio FC will now return to USL play this weekend when they welcome the Swope Park Rangers to Toyota Field at 7:30 p.m.
