[USL PRO: Week 4] OKC Energy FC got goals from four different players set up by four other players in a 4-0 win over Arizona United Saturday evening at the Peoria Sports Complex in a match that drew 2,888 fans at the Peoria Sports Complex for Arizona's first game of the season.

Energy FC (2-1-0) broke through in the opening minute of the second half as Steven Perry scored on a pass from David Leichty in the 46th minute. Over the next 25 minutes, goals came from Kyle Greig (set up by Tarek Mora), Kyle Miller (Nate Shiffman) and Algerian-Dane Adda Djeziri (Michael Thomas).

Jon Kempin, on loan from Sporting Kansas City, made one save to earn his first shutout of the season.

Also on Saturday ...

Defending champion Orlando City moved into first place in USL PRO with its second consecutive win, a 1-0, decision over the Charleston Battery on FC Dallas loan player Brian Span's first goal.

“Apart from a few isolated incidents, I thought that it would have been a travesty had we not won the game tonight,” said Orlando coach Adrian Heath. “Overall I’m pleased with the win, and I’m pleased that Cobi [Span] got a goal because he’s been working very hard in training.”

-- Sammy Ochoa, who spent three seasons with the Seattle Sounders and before that five seasons in Mexico with Estudiantes Tecos, scored two goals and added an assist in the Wilmington Hammerheads' 4-3 win at Pittsburgh. Daniel Lovitz, on loan from Toronto FC, added a goal and an assist for the Hammerheads.

-- Besides Wilmington, Charlotte and Orange County also picked up their first wins of the season.

Friday night ...

The Dayton Dutch Lions capitalized on a goal by Joe Broekhuizen four minutes into stoppage time to tie the Rochester Rhinos, 1-1, at Miami Valley Hospital Stadium.

    Your review reads a little harsh on AZ United. Would be good to point out: 1. They had less than a week of preseason. 2. It was tied at 0-0 until the red card and AZ went to 10 men.
