Match Report: LA Galaxy II secure crucial victory on the road against Tulsa

LA Galaxy II (6-7-8, 26 points) secured all three points with a 3-1 victory over Tulsa Roughnecks FC (4-10-6, 18 points) on Wednesday night at ONEOK Field in Tulsa, Okla.

Tulsa Roughnecks FC were first to the scoreboard, capitalizing on a mistake from Los Dos goalkeeper Eric Lopez in the third minute. Tulsa’s Fredlin Mompremier laid one off to Rodrigo da Costa after pulling Lopez out of position, creating enough space for da Costa to find the back of the net.

However, LA Galaxy II began their comeback in the 27th minute. LA Galaxy Boys’ Academy product Jorge Hernandez provided a great ball from far post that Nate Shultz headed home, recording his first goal of the season, as well as his first goal with LA Galaxy II. The two sides entered halftime level with one goal apiece.

Los Dos continued to hold on to the lead for the remainder of the match, tallying two more goals before the final whistle. The visiting side’s second goal came in the 54th minute when Augustine Williams headed a Jose Hernandez free kick from a wide position in the box.

In the 69th minute, Tulsa found themselves down by a goal and a man after defender Matt Rogers was sent off on a straight red for challenge from behind on clear breakaway produced by Galaxy’s Carlos Harvey. A few minutes later, LA Galaxy II sealed their victory with a third goal from Jorge Hernandez, who also assisted his sides’ first goal of the evening.
