Oklahoma City FC's Danny Gibson was unable to connect with the back of the net as time expired in the final seconds of stoppage.

The ball deflected off of several players and was half way across the white goal line, before it bounced into the cross bar and out of the goal.

The visiting Austin Aztex avoided being upset and maintained their undefeated record as Saturday's game concluded in a 0-0 draw.

Both teams earned one point and kept the same standings in the Premier Developmental League's mid-south division as a result of the draw. Austin leads the way with 22 points, while Oklahoma City comes in at second with 16.
