(TURLOCK, CA., January 4th, 2019)— Turlock (7-0) faced the Sockers (5-1) for the first time this 2018-19 Season at home after returning home from a road game against the Fury last night. Both back to back games showed no success for The Express who fell short 8-1 to the Sockers. 


The San Diego Sockers came in strong as always with the simple objective of getting back  on top of the Pacific Division as Tacoma currently holds the number 1 spot. 


The Express entered tonight’s match after taking on the Fury in Ontario last night. They began similar to yesterday’s game by opening up the scoreboard in the 1st quarter with a goal by Jorge Carmona. 


Brandon Escoto who is a well known threat up top cut the Express celebration early by finding the equalizer a few moments later. This goal was the first of 8 unanswered in the first half in favor of San Diego. 


6 of those were equally distributed among the Sockers with Brandon Escoto returning at the end of the second quarter to secure  his 2nd goal of the night by blasting one in past Edgar Martinez who started for the Express in the box tonight. 


After a rainfall of goals shown from San Diego before the half, Turlock switched gears in the final two quarters making defense a priority. This paid off as no additional goals were recorded in the 3rd and 4th but resulted in just one goal for Turlock. 


The Express are now on the road next week as they prepare to visit both El Paso Coyotes and the RGV Barracudas with a rest day in between.
