Express Get their First Win on the Road

 (El Paso, Texas. January 13, 2017)--- Turlock Express (5-7) traveled out of Northern California Friday night to be hosted by Southwest Division team El Paso Coyotes (0-11). The Express outshines El Paso with a 13-9 victory not only improving their overall MASL record but taking their first win on the Road. 

El Paso who had announced earlier this week new Player signings and in addition a new head coach for the Coyotes, began the match in search of their first win.

 Even though The Coyotes now have a 0-11 record in their inaugural season, the match had a fast start with various early attempts on goal from El Paso that caught Turlock by surprise. With less than 5 minutes into the game, Matthew Germain from Turlock turned the tables in favor of the Express and made a statement with the first goal of the night assisted by Jose Barajas. Germain continued to dominate the opening period with an additional goal at 3:27 that gave Express the lead. 

El Paso however did not hold back having five different players response with goals of their own that challenged the Express to a 5-6 score to finish up the first half of the match.

 The third quarter was a rainfall of goals from both teams searching to gain possession and take the lead. A total of 8 goals, 4 and 4 from both Turlock and El Paso were witnessed that fired up the Texas crowd. With less than 30 seconds left in the 3rd quarter Defender Alex Paz gains possession of a loose ball and counterattacks El Paso that ultimately put Turlock back in the lead with a one goal differential.   

The final quarter of the match was dominated by Turlock who shut El Paso out by putting a stop to their offense attempts. Anibal Echeverria had a total of 3 goals tonight followed by Martyn Arista and Jorge Carmona who had 2 goals each. Adrian Gutierrez, Ivan Campos and Adrian Plascencia all contributed a goal each that finalized the scoreboard to the 13-9 victory. 

Turlock is now heading to Dallas Texas for tomorrow’s game to conclude this week's double header searching for an additional win on the road. Updates of the game and all Live stats can be found at, as well as a live broadcast at MASL TV in our Youtube channel.
