The Sacramento Surge lost at home to the visiting Toros de Mexico by the score of 10-6. Sacramento was looking to bounce back with a victory at home after going 0-3 on their last road trip. The Toros lost Friday night on the road to the Turlock Express 9-6 and were looking to avoid going 0-3 on their three game road trip. T'was a raining Saturday night and the fans were getting ready to cheer on the home team inside the warm and dry confines of the Estadio Azteca Soccer Arena.

The Toros struck first in the opening period with a goal by Oswaldo Lara in the eleventh minute. According to the Surge's General Manager it was the longest Sacramento has held their opponent scoreless but the Toros would score twice to close out the first with a 3-0 lead. A disputed no-goal call from the officials would set the tone for the game as the ball would briefly cross the goal line and rim out, plain old bad luck and missed opportunities. In the second the Toros continued to charge against Sacramento's defense scoring three more goals to extend their lead 6-0. The Surge would finally notch a score on the board when Juan Fresquez would get a goal at the ten and a half minute to close of the second down 6-1.

Sacramento would come out of halftime with a bit of fire as they shut down the Toros for most of the third with a tighten defense, more shot-on-goals and a new goalie behind the net. Surge's leading scorer Jaime Portillo would score the first of his two goals of the evening at the opening kick-off. The Toros would score again but Chris Sandoval would score another goal for Sacramento chipping away at the visitors lead and ending the third 7-3. Jorge Fernandez and Jaime Portillo would score for the Surge and narrow the lead to 7-5. But the Toros would strike back by score three straight goals and widen the lead 10-5. Sacramento's Edson Sanchez would score the team's fifth goal of the evening in the closing minutes of the game making it a 10-6 game which would end up being the final score.

The Surge improved on their shot-on-goals attempts but failed to capitalize on three power play opportunities and played sluggish defense. Sacramento Surge's final home game of the 2013-2014 season is next week against rival Turlock. Tickets for the game can be purchased at the Estadio Azteca box office or at http://www.sacsurge.com
