(June 7, 2019) — Phoenix Rising FC continued its $1 Beer Night dominance following a 5-0 drubbing of Tulsa Roughnecks FC in front of a sellout crowd of 6,708 fans. The win improved the club’s $1 Beer Night record to 11-0-0 and the club notched its 10th consecutive sellout at Casino Arizona Field during regular season and postseason play. 

WHAT TO KNOW

  • Forward Junior Flemmings notched a brace.
  • Forward Adam Jahn scored his sixth goal in five matches.
  • Rising extends its home unbeaten streak to seven matches (4-0-3)

Less than 15 minutes into the match, forward Adam Jahn brought the crowd to its feet with a highlight-reel goal. Midfielder James Musa collected a pass out of the back from goalkeeper Zac Lubin. He then sent a diagonal ball nearly 60 yards to Jahn, who kicked it up and over the goalkeeper directly off the pass to make it 1-0 in the 13th minute.

Jahn then went from scoring a goal to providing the assist on one in the 25th minute. After racing in behind the defense and into space down the right flank, Jahn sent a rolling cross to a racing Junior Flemmings who only had to pass the ball into the back of the net from right in front of the goal mouth to make it 2-0.

Rising FC’s third goal was less dramatic, After Flemmings earned a penalty, captain Solomon Asante stepped to the spot and calmly converted his penalty to give the club a 3-0 lead in the 41st minute.

In the second half, Phoenix Rising continued to pour it on. In an eerily similar buildup to the first goal of the night, Asante sent a long-distance diagonal from his own half to a sprinting Flemmings. The forward brought the pass down with a touch, rushed into the box, and slickly slid the ball between the goalkeeper’s legs to make it 4-0 in the 65th minute.

FC Tucson loanee Andrew Wheeler scored the final goal in the 71st minute, a long-distance shot from several yards outside of the 18-yard box. His goal broke a club record for most goals scored in a single match at Casino Arizona Field.

Phoenix Rising FC returns to Casino Arizona Field on Saturday, June 15, in a showdown with rival Orange County SC. The first 2,000 fans who arrive will receive a PRFC bath towel. Gates open at 6 p.m. and the match will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at PHXRisingFC.com.
