Barracudas Claims Yet Another Victory  

HIDALGO, Texas (January 13th, 2019) - January 6th, the Rio Grande Valley Barracudas gained their first at-home victory of the season against the Tacoma stars; now, a week later, they have officially claimed yet another at-home victory for their 2018-2019 MASL season. This time, against Turlock Express. 

The game started off with a big bang by the RGV Barracudas as they triumphantly scored three goals in the first quarter. The first two goals were scored by Efrain Martinez and the third by none other than Barracudas’ international star player, Diego Zuniga. The first quarter ended with a cut 3-0 scoreboard in favor of the Barracudas. 

Turlock Express, however, wasn’t having the three goal difference and so pushed to knock off a few goals of their own. In the second quarter Juan Carlos Bugarin and Matthew Germain, both players from Turlock Express scored and thus raised the scoreboard against the Barracudas to 3-2. This wasn’t enough as the Barracudas, too, scored in the second quarter; a goal by Moises Gonzalez. The second quarter ended with a scoreboard of 4-2. 

The third quarter of the game was fair point for each as both teams managed to score. For Turlock Express, Carlos Manzo  and for the RGV Barracudas, another goal by Moises Gonzalez . The third quarter ended in 5-3. 

The fourth quarter of the game would determine it all and the Barracudas would not back down. The Barracudas scored an additional three goals by Emmanuel Aguirre, Gustavo Rosales, and Mitchell Cardenas and with a score board of 8-3 the game concluded and the RGV Barracudas claimed their second victory of the season!

Next match for the RGV Barracudas is scheduled for Sunday, January 20th against Monterrey Flash whom previously beat the Barracudas on an overtime golden goal. Turlock Express will go on to encounter Tacoma Stars Sunday, January 20th right at home.
