Lucky Charms: Tulsa depended upon a 93rd minute penalty kick to bring the team level with Galveston and steal a point from the current league leaders in a 4-4 frenzy.
Cap’n Crunch: Roy Hernandez scored Pirate SC’s first goal before sinking back into the midfield. Hernandez’s goal total now stands at 10 as he distances himself as SPSL top scorer.
Balance: Four different Pirate SC players tallied against Tulsa. The Hernandez brothers, Luis and Roy, as well as Dustin Botting and Felipe Escobedo found the back of the net.
Wheaties: Last weekend was supposed to bring a double-header and a decisive league leader was to emerge. However, the SPSL is still looking for its Wheaties box cover team after Tulsa and Galveston played to an entertaining draw.
Basic 4: Club America has figured out the game’s basic formula: score more than one’s opponent. Four goals proved enough as the club secured its second-straight victory in a 4-1 triumph over visiting Corpus Christi Fuel.
Oreo O’s: The Fuel’s win column is still empty. The team fell for the eighth-consecutive time this season on its Saturday adventure to Houston.
Froot Loops: It’ll be a colorful weekend in SPSL play before the holiday break. Each team will be in uniform as Regals FC hosts Club America and the Fuel once again hit the road, this time for Galveston. The OK clan will trek to Texas Lonestrikers territory to defend its unbeaten record in a double-header matchup.
