TACOMA DEFIANCE DRAWS 0-0 AT ORANGE COUNTY SC TO SECURE ROAD POINT

Tacoma Defiance (3-4-3, 12 points) drew 0-0 on Tuesday with Orange County SC (5-2-3, 18 points) in the team's second fixture of its four-match road stretch.

Tacoma put on the pressure early in the game, and despite a number of chances, including a shot by Samuel Adeniran that curved over the top of the bar in the 38th minute, Defiance couldn’t find the back of the net and settled for its third draw of the season.

Tacoma plays its next match also in Southern California on Sunday, July 11 as the squad goes up against LA Galaxy II for the third time this season (5:00 p.m. PT / ESPN+). Tacoma is 1-0-1 against Los Dos this season, their most recent match being a 2-0 Defiance win on June 27.
