Wow! What a finish! Did anyone else catch this game?

Sure looked like a BS call there during stoppage time to give OKC a penalty kick and the equalizer with only a minute or so left. Then Shaun Wright-Phillips showed he still has it and made a beautiful kick to go ahead with only seconds left. Amazing Finish!

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – In a wild finish down the stretch, Phoenix Rising FC endured two early injuries, as well as a penalty kick concession, as Shaun Wright-Phillips scored in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time to lead his side to a thrilling 2-1 victory against OKC Energy FC in front of 6,251 at Phoenix Rising Soccer Complex. Just minutes before, OKC’s Kyle Hyland converted a PK equalizer in the third minute of second-half stoppage time.

Up next is an away game at undefeated San Antonio FC.

Any word on the players that needed MRI's. Hopefully those injuries are not too serious.

I haven't heard but both Rooney and Riggi are key offensive players who PRFC can't afford to lose. Still the depth on the team showed with Johnson subbing in and scoring the go ahead goal. Plus Drogba should be ready hopefully in a couple of weeks.

Alessandro Riggi will miss 3-5 weeks with a right knee injury. At least he isn't gone for the season.

Still losing Rooney for the season is a major blow.
