Turlock’s defense strategized differently to start off the second half. Juan Carlos Gonzalez however did not remain quiet, returning with another goal for the fury putting him in the lead scorer position for Ontario tonight with a total of 3 goals on his behalf.

Express dominates the fourth quarter with 4 goals, two by Martyn Arista and one by Ivan Campos and Matthew Germain putting them back on the board 6-5 with the fury up by one. 

With the final minutes left in the 4th quarter, Express goalkeeper makes a change with Jose Martinez turning into the 6th attacker for the Express. Turlock rapidly pressures up top trying to find the net before the last seconds are up to tie the game but Juan Carlos Gonzalez with a breakaway finishes off the match giving Ontario the win 7-5.

Turlock (2-4) is to come back to Southern California on December 9th, hosted by the San Diego Sockers continuing to look for a victory on the road.
