The Sacramento Surge lost to the Turlock Express 11-7 at the Estadio Azteca Soccer Arena before other large crowd. Turlock played the Surge tight in the first three periods before blowing the game wide open in the fourth by scoring five goals. Sacramento was matching them goal for goal in the wild final period before the Express scored two quick goals to ice the game. The matchup was a foul filled contest with the Surge earning a total of thirty-eight minutes of penalties. Turlock was only penalized for eleven minutes and received ten power-play opportunities but were unable to capitalize on them due to the tough defensive play of the Surge.

Brady Nunes of Sacramento lead the team in scoring with three goals followed by Ernesto Carranza with two and Chris Sandoval and Jaime Portillo scored a goal each in the lost. Turlock's eleven goal offense was led by Beau Villanueva with three and Arturo Pullido scored two. Sacramento's offense was pressing hard until the fourth when they were in the defensive due to Turlock's aggressive play and chippy foul cards that were being issued. Twice in the game the Surge played to a three-on-five due to yellow cards that were given to Brady Nunes and Emmanuel Lopez.

Sacramento's next game will be on the road playing back-to-back games against the Las Vegas Legends (01/25) and the Toros de Mexico (01/26). The Surge's next home game will be on Saturday, February 8th against the Toros.
