Indy Eleven vs. OKC Energy FC Preveiw

On Saturday night the boys in blue will take the turf at Carroll Stadium to host OKC Energy FC at 7:00 PM. The Indy Eleven are sitting at seventh on the table after a 6-2 loss against Atlanta United II on Sunday night. The two goals for the boys in blue came from Nick Moon in 51' and Peter-Lee Vassell in the 61'. The boys in blue look to turn things around against an OKC Energy that is coming off of a 2-2 draw against Atlanta United II this last Wednesday.

Indy XI and OKC have seen each other twice already this year. The first of these two matchups came on Wednesday June at Carroll Stadium that ended in a 1-1 draw with goals coming from Nick Moon in the 42' for the Indy Eleven and Frank Lopez in the 69' for OKC. The second of these two matches came on July 10 at Taft Stadium. At the end of the first half the game was tied 1-1 with a goal coming by Cammy Smith for the Indy Eleven in the 15' and another goal by Frank Lopez in the 20'. However when coming back out the teams took the field for one minute in the second half before being sent to the locker room for a weather delay and a loss of power in the stadium. It was announced around midnight that the game would be completely restarted later in the year. That game will be made up on September 29 in OKC

Going into this game the boys in blue have four new players that could possibly get their first starts/minutes in a USL Championship game. The Indy Eleven signed Diego Sanchez, Alann Torres, Ecris Revolorio, and Aiden Benitez to the squad via USL Academy contracts this Monday. Goalie Jordan Farr made an appearance on the lineup as a sub in Sunday's loss against ATL2. Saturdays match could be the first time we see Farr since breaking his wrist back on June 15 in a loss to Pittsburgh, the same game that saw Martin Rennie removed form the head coach position. Neveal Hackshaw has also been seen on the lineup but unlike Farr has appeared in both games that he was listed as a sub. Hopefully both Jordan and Neveal are at 100% and are ready to go for Saturday's match.

You can watch the game live at Carroll Stadium, where beers will be $4 and a hot dog, drink, and chips combo will be $11.
