COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC played out to a scoreless draw with OKC Energy FC on Saturday night at Weidner Field.

"If you would have offered me four points at the beginning of the season… we would’ve jumped at it," said Switchbacks FC head coach Alan Koch. "So, from that perspective it's a big positive. Tonight’s the first time anybody's come here, this season, and sat back, and, really, made us play. They made us be the ones that are going to possess and try to break them down."

The Switchbacks held OKC Energy FC to zero shots on target to record the team's second clean sheet of the season.

"I think we are doing good," said Joan Cervós. "What we have to do is to arrive more, get more shots, more crosses, and create a little bit more in the front… But I think we are creating something good and the team is responding very good."

The next three games for the Switchbacks are on the road starting with a trip west of the Rocky Mountains to take on the Real Monarchs SLC on Wednesday, September 9 at 8pm MT.
