It is said that sailing is the slowest form of transportation with the possible exception of air travel through O'Hare, and Rocket City United now have first-hand experience of the latter. After canceled flights and hours in the lounges of the famous air hub, RCU made it to Oklahoma for their match with FC Tulsa a mere hour and a half after their scheduled kick-off.
When play was finally started, RCU were unable to shake of the road weariness as they gave away two early goals. Unlike the Yanks of the World Cup, the boys from the Tennessee Valley were only able to reduce that deficit to one in the time remaining for a 2:1 loss to the team from Tulsa.
It was a missed opportunity to pick up points on league leaders Chattanooga FC who were held to a rare home draw by Atlanta FC, 1:1. RCU now sits alone in second place with 7 points from 4 games (2-1-1).
