Flash Grind Out Road Sweep
TIJUANA, Mexico- The Rio Grande Valley Flash swept the backend of the west coast trip by grinding out a 6-2 victory over the Mexico Toros on Sunday afternoon at the Unisantos Sports Park.
A game that featured over 25 fouls, the Flash used the power play to their advantage to earn the victory by going 2-for-3.
Erick Flores netted a hat-trick taking his personal tally and team leading to 14 goals to guide the Flash on the offensive front.
Brownsville native goalkeeper Juan Gamboa had a career day in net stopping 26-out of-28 shots earning his fifth win of the season.
The next home match for the Flash is on Friday night February 15, when they host the second-placed Chicago Mustangs at State Farm Arena with the kick-off at 7:30 pm.
It will be a pivotal game as the Flash are only behind by a half game and it will have the makings of a playoff match as only two teams from each division can move. The Dallas Sidekicks already clinched the top spot in the division.
