By Tyler Vaughn, 02/29/20, 2:00PM CST


Energy FC wrapped up preseason with a 4-0 win over FC Tucson of USL League One Saturday afternoon in Tucson, Ariz. Jaime Chavez, Ray Saari, Frank Lopez and Arun Basuljevic found the back of the net, while the defense locked things down to keep a clean sheet.

Chavez capped off a prolific preseason with his seventh goal in eight games, putting the Greens ahead early off a feed from Jose Hernandez.

Saari opened his Energy account with a goal to double the lead heading into the halftime break. Basuljevic picked up the assist.

Shortly after the second-half restart, Basuljevic found Lopez with the latter making in 3-0 with a blast from distance.

Basuljevic finished the scoring with a goal of his own just a few minutes later after driving into the penalty area before firing home through traffic.

Energy FC begins the 2020 USL Championship season at Taft Stadium March 7 at 7 p.m. against Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC. Visit or call 235-KICK for more information.
