HERRIMAN, Utah (Thursday, June 20, 2019) – Real Monarchs SLC (5-6-3, 18 points, 14 West) remains on the road to face Tulsa Roughnecks FC on Saturday, June 29 at 6:30p MT.

The Monarchs found its first road win of 2019 last Saturday when it faced fellow Four-Corners rival Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC. After a scoreless first half, Colorado struck first in the 55th minute before the Monarchs mounted its comeback. The Monarchs found goals from Utah-native FW Kyle Coffee and RSL MF Justin Portillo. Coffee found the first in the 81st minute when his shot took a bounce off a defender to float over the goalkeeper. Portillo ended the contest with a stunning freekick that curved to find the far corner pocket and secure the three points away from home with a 2-1 scoreline.
