Energy FC were held scoreless for the first time in preseason as Grand Canyon University picked up a 1-0 win at GCU Stadium.

The Greens started on the front foot with several good chances coming in the opening quarter of an hour. A nice counter-attack started by Callum Ross ended with Richard Dixon’s shot missing the frame. Ross had an opportunity of his own just a few minutes later that was saved. Alex Dixon came closest to opening the scoring in the first half, but his shot was cleared off the line.

OKC kept up the pressure in the second half, creating plenty of opportunities, but were ultimately unable to find the back of the net. The Antelopes broke the deadlock late in the second half and held on for the win.

Energy FC takes on Sporting AZ FC at 4 p.m. CDT on Tuesday at Kino Sports Complex.
