Sockers, 7-3, prep for second half of season

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - It's time to check in with the San Diego Sockers, who are halfway through their season.

They recently stumbled, losing back-to-back games. It's just the second time that's happened since their reincarnation six years ago.

While it has been a season of mostly highs, the Sockers lost matches in St. Louis to round out 2014.

"We're not used to losing. The Sockers aren't used to losing, especially back-to-back weekends," forward Nick Perera said.

"When you lose you learn more than when you win. For us it's alright, we're gonna learn from it and improve," goalie Brian Toth said.

Last week the Sockers rebounded with a blowout win over Sacramento.

"Coming back scoring 18 goals is good, wipes the slate clean. We have the offensive power, especially in the St. Louis game, we only had three goals," Perera said.

The Sockers now find themselves 7-3 with 10 games to play.

"We wanted to get to a point where we could afford ourselves a game that didn't go our way. We wanted to, but now we're looking at we have to win out," Perera said.

"Every game is gonna be a battle. Those weekends with double games are gonna be tough weekends on everyone. We've gotta be mentally prepared to have a good shot," midfielder Ray Reza said.

Hopefully their December road trip provided lessons learned for a strong second-half run.

The Sockers play at home Saturday night at 7 p.m. Tickets are still available.
