The Sacramento Surge (1-8) will play host to rival Bay Area Rosal (5-4) this Saturday night at the Estadio Azteca Soccer Arena at 7 PM. Rosal is looking for their second straight win over the Surge whilst Sacramento is seeking to win their first game at home. Sacramento is led by Jaime Portillo who leads the team with eleven goals followed by Chris Sandoval with seven. Rosal's lead scorers are Manolo Pina with eleven goals and Emrah Klimentra who has scored twelve.
Sacramento's best chance to win this game is to play aggressively on both sides of the field. They will need to improve on their shots-goal-attempts and tighten up on defense. In their last game against Rosal Sacramento managed only twelve S-O-Gs compared to Bay Area's twenty-four (who won the contest 9-5). It's an improvement over their win at Turlock when they made only eight attempts at the net.
Saturday night's match up is the first of a two game home stand for Sacramento who will host the Turlock Express on the 11th. There are a few tickets available for Saturday night's game which will surely be a barn raiser. Seats are just $10 for adults and $7 for youths 15 and under. They can be purchased at either the Estadio Azteca Soccer Arena box office or at http://www.sacsurge.com
