TURLOCK LOSE IN OT
(TURLOCK, CA., January 11th, 2019)— This Friday night the Express (0-8) visited the Coyotes (2-4) for an evening match for their first encounter of the season. After leading all game, The Express blew a 6-3 lead in the third that pushed things into OT. El Paso found the golden goal first and finalized a 9-8 OT win.
New additions, Douglas Lima and Gustavo Campos made their debut at tonight's game against the Coyotes from the Southwest division. With the two new young players on the field, Turlock began the opening quarter with the first attempts on goal.
Despite the Coyotes high pressure the Express were able to secure the first goal of the night by Arturo Pulido who made it possible off a corner play with an assist by Jorge Carmona.
5 minutes later, Gustavo Campos received a clear pass by Adrian Gutierrez who fought off a couple defenders before blasting one in past the Coyotes Goalkeeper, giving him his first goal in a Express Jersey.
With less than 2 minutes in the first, El Paso scored their first goal but was shown a fast response with Carlos Manzo reassuring Turlock’s lead.
The Express was able to take a 6-3 lead with Manzo and Campos returning for their second of the night before heading into the 3rd.
The Coyotes who are known for finishing off strong in the 4th did just that and tied the game 7-7 with a goal by Jorge Rios. This sparked a fire within for El Paso and pushed things into overtime. Unlike their previous game they were able to get the golden goal this time around.
