Sockers Host Turlock on Friday for Honoring Heroes Night
CHILES EXPECTED TO RETURN FRIDAY
Kraig Chiles, who missed the home-and-home series against Tacoma with a leg injury, is expected to be ready for the March 1 match.
San Diego has allowed 51 goals this season. The Sockers led the MASL last season (2017-18) in fewest goals allowed with 82.
NEWCOMERS MAKING AN IMPACT
Christian Gutierrez, Travis Pittman, Taylor Bond, Juan Gonzalez and Leo De Oliveira have added offensive firepower to the team with a combined 29 goals and 34 assists for 63 points.
POWER PLAY NEEDS TO IMPROVE
The Sockers are only converting 27% off their power play opportunities. San Diego, who leads the MASL in PP opportunities (9-for-34), ranks 16th out of 17 teams. Last year, the team worked at a 53% success rate. The penalty killing unit's rate is at 52% (10-for-21).
SCHEDULE CHANGE FOR MARCH 15th GAME
The MASL announced a schedule change. The Sockers will host the Dallas Sidekicks on Friday, March 15, 7:35 p.m. instead of the Turlock Express.
Brandon Escoto extended his goal-scoring streak to seven straight matches with two goals and two assists as the San Diego Sockers ran past the Tacoma Stars by a 9-5 score on Sunday night at the accesso ShoWare Center in Kent, Washington.
The Sockers (14-1) have won twelve straight matches, the longest active streak in the MASL.
