Sockers withstand weather, late rally

The San Diego Sockers improved to 7-0 this season thanks to a late goal by forward Aaron Susi with six minutes left in Friday night’s game against the Tijuana Revolucion.

The 5-4 victory marks the second time the Sockers pulled out a game late since their Nov. 20 victory over defending champions Stockton Cougars, with the same score.

“The team worked their butt off as a unit to get this win,” said Sockers midfielder Miguel “Chiky” Luna, who said it was a physical game in harsh conditions, as the field was exposed to the rain and cold.

“This win is a bonding experience for everyone and shows we have heart to win in any conditions,” Luna said.

The Sockers’ next game is on Dec. 28 at 6:15 p.m. against the Fusion at the Del Mar Arena.

The Fusion defeated the ASC Hammers from Phoenix in the southwest region qualifier of the US Open Cup tournament to advance to the next round against the San Diego Sockers.

The Dec. game is the first of a three-game home series and will feature a halftime game featuring San Diego Sockers legends, including Julie Vee, Brian Quinn and others.

On Wednesday, Dec. 30, the Sockers face the Tijuana Revolucion again, this time at home and on Jan. 2, they face the Stockton Cougars at the Del Mar Arena.
