The Sacramento Surge won it's first game of their expansion season against the visiting Toros Mexico by the score of 3-2. Off the Wall Soccer Complex was filled with fans as the Surge began it's five game home stand. Looking for their first win, the home team was pumped up and excited. The game was a close one. It was evenly matched for the first two periods. In period three the Surge pulled away from the tied game by scoring a goal late. The final period was a nail bitter because the Toros were playing very aggressive around the net. But the steady goal keeping from Emmanuel Lopez and the surprise appearance of Airrick Harvey on the pitch gave the team a boost preserving the 3-2 lead for the Surge's first win of the season.
Saturday night's victory also avenges the 12-3 loss earlier this month at the hands of the Toros. Now with that elusive first win under their belts, the Surge play host next week to the Tacoma Stars (The Stars defeated the Surge in back-to-back road games in December). The Surge's game play looked so much improved since their last home game back on December 15. Things are looking up for the Surge. They're starting to really gel as a team and if this same squad comes back next year, they will really be a force to be reckoned with in the Professional Arena Soccer League.
Will they be able to get themselves on a winning streak? To find out you'll have to check out their game next Saturday at the Off the Wall Soccer Complex. Kick-off is 7:30 P.M. and tickets are only $10. You can purchase them at the door or at http://www.sacsurge.com
