Upsetting loss in Overtime for Turlock

(TURLOCK, CA. January 12th, 2017)--- Friday night Turlock (2-12) welcomed The Ontario Fury (6-6)  for a 7:05 pm league game. The first 3 quarters of tonight’s match were all Fury with little movement seen from the Express. However, Turlock turned things around as the final 15 minutes were added onto the clock. The Express regained ball possession and defended their home field with an equalizer by veteran Arturo Pulido that took things into Overtime. Turlock would then have two set plays that could have sealed the deal but fell short with an unexpected goal from the Fury that ended the game with a final OT score of 7-6 Fury. 

Despite playing at home last night and then hitting the road earlier today, The Fury opened up the match with two unanswered goals in the first quarter that would give give them an early lead. The two goals were seen from Juan Carlos Gonzalez and Jinho Kim.


A fast goal would then be seen by Turlock Player Adrian Plasencia in the 2nd quarter in the first 18 seconds. Then after 3 dead minutes with no goals from either side, Juan Carlos Gonzalez returned for his second goal of night that finished off the first half 3-1 Fury.

The last 2 quarters of the match were well played by Turlock who came back after being down by 3. Ivan Campos, Adrian Plascencia and Carlos Manzo scored one each consecutively that cut down the goal differential to one. Arturo Pulido found the equalizer at 6:13 that tied the game 5-5. The fury regained confidence in the last 5 minutes of the match with a goal by Adrian Perez that allowed Ontario to retake the lead.

Fury’s lead did not live on long as Arturo Pulido tied things up once more and pushed the match into Overtime. Unfortunately for the Express, the man of night was Jiho Lee who scored the golden goal for the Fury.

Turlock will close out week 12 in the MASL with a road game against the Tacoma Stars this Sunday evening. The match can be viewed live on
