Bolts Overcome By Revolucion
Anaheim, CA- (January 6, 2012)- New year, same story. The Anaheim Bolts held a lead going into the fourth quarter but fell to Revolucion Tijuana 14-13 to drop to 3-4 on the season.
In all four of Anaheim's losses, the Bolts have surrendered leads in the second half.
The Bolts held an 8-4 advantage midway through the third quarter, but Tijuana came storming back to take a late 14-11 lead. With Paul Wright on as a sixth attacker, the Bolts scored two goals in the final minute, but came up short in much the same fashion as the loss to Turlock.
It all looked so different as the Bolts raced out to a 7-3 halftime lead with Hugo Casillas and Enrique Tovar each scoring two goals. Sam Allen also scored his first goal in a Bolts jersey, but Alfonso Canul scored 13 seconds before halftime to turn the momentum in Tijuana's favor.
The visitors took over the game in the second half with Cesar Romero scoring five times (four in the fourth quarter) as Tijuana eventually took full control. The Bolts poured on the pressure in the final minute, but for the second time in as many games, came up just short.
The Bolts have no time to wallow in their sorrows as they hit the road tomorrow to renew the I-5 rivalry with the undefeated San Diego Sockers.
