Sockers2 Find Offensive Groove In 14-6 Win
The San Diego Sockers2 found their elusive offensive firepower to defeat the visiting Turlock Cal Express 14-6 on Sunday afternoon at Pechanga Arena. Brian Rodriguez had four goals (4-3=7), Anthony Rodriguez (3-1=4) had a hat trick, and Jason Payne (2-2=4) added two more markers to lead San Diego (1-2).
The contest was close in the first half with the Express having a two-goal lead early in the second period. At the half, the game was level at three after the Sockers2 scored two of what would be 10 in a row before Turlock would answer late in the fourth.
San Diego exploded for seven goals in the third period to put the game out of reach. The fourth quarter also saw seven goals tallied, three for the Sockers2 and four for the Express.
Goalkeeper Joshua Villanueva made his first start and earned the victory by making seven saves on 13 shots faced.
San Diego returns to action next Sunday, January 15, 12:00pm against RGV Barracudas at Pechanga Arena.
