Buffaloes Earn First Ever Win


Arkansas Wolves - FC Bartlesville 1:2

The team was on the road on Saturday when they traveled to Benton, AR to face the Arkansas Wolves Academy.

Buffaloes got ahead in the first minute of the game, after a great one-touch assist from Lucas Pardo to Perica Obradovic. Perica was calm and placed the ball into the bottom left corner to give us the lead.

Perica's Goal

The home team got their equalizer after a corner-kick play in the 9th minute. The ball was played on the ground and finished clinically by the Wolves midfielder with a powerful shot at the front post.

In the game in which the Wolves had the majority of the possession, the Buffaloes settled for transitions and counterattacks to create their opportunities. After a throw-in in the 21st minute, Vitor Matos Pereira was able to score with a header and give the Buffaloes the lead. This turned out to be a game-winning goal that earned the Buffaloes its first-ever win. Lucas Pardo assisted with this goal, too, earning himself 3rd assist of the year.

The head coach Luka Milicevic said this about the game: "We expected a very tough game in Benton. We traveled with only 12 guys so we knew we would have to put up a big fight to earn points here. Being up 2-1 at the half helped us manage the game in our favor. We wanted to defend and see the game out which was exactly what happened".

The Buffaloes are back home for their next game against Side FC 92. The game is scheduled for Saturday, April 20 at the Custer Stadium with the 5:30 pm kick-off time.
