Sounders 2 began its inaugural USL campaign with three straight wins, two comfortable ones and a come-from-behind takedown of rival Portland. It also began its inaugural season with three straight games at Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila.

On Thursday night, S2 learned that life on the road can be a bit more challenging.

Despite a pair of goals from Qudus Lawal, S2 fell 4-3 to the Roughnecks on Thursday at ONEOK Field for the club’s first-ever loss.

Though Tulsa opened the scoring just two minutes in, Lawal answered with goals in the ninth and 10th minutes and Jimmy Ockford added another late in the first half as Seattle (3-1-0) took a 3-2 lead into the break. But the Roughnecks — which featured former Sounder Sammy Ochoa — scored in the 69th and 78th minute to complete a come-from-behind victory.

S2 travels to Oklahoma City for the Zombie Sonics derby on Saturday at 5 p.m. PST.
