In a game of firsts, Oklahoma City Energy FC extended its unbeaten streak to six games.

Energy FC defeated Sacramento Republic FC 2-0 in United Soccer League Pro action on Saturday night at Pribil Stadium before a crowd of 3,643.

Energy FC (5-7-3) defender Mark Howard scored his first goal of the season in the 52nd minute to break open a scoreless game, and Mikey Lopez, who is on loan from Sporting Kansas City, added his first goal of the season in the 67th minute to put the game away.

Lopez’s goal came on an assist from McGuinness alum Steven Perry after Danny Delgado stole possession from Sacramento at midfield. Delgado signed with the team earlier this week and made his debut in the 60th minute.

“Perry made a good run to suck in the left back,” Lopez said. “He played me wide and I thought, ‘I’ll just take a hit and see what happens.’”

Lopez fired the shot past Sacramento goalkeeper Dominik Jakubek.

Oklahoma City saw Sacramento (8-5-2) fire seven shots in the first half, and Sacramento had at least four chances early in the second half but couldn’t convert. Sacramento took a shot and it hit the crossbar. Oklahoma City goalkeeper Jon Kempin rebounded quickly and Oklahoma City was on the run.
