SAN DIEGO–Chiky Luna’s scissor kick golden goal 1:20 into sudden death overtime gave the San Diego Sockers a heart-stopping 6-5 victory over the Las Vegas Legends at the Valley View Casino Center, advancing the Sockers to the PASL Ron Newman Cup championship game. San Diego will face the Detroit Waza Flo in the championship game for the second straight season, after Detroit also escaped the semi-final with a 6-5 OT win over Rio Grande Valley. A PASL playoff-record crowd of 4,278 saw Luna slide down at the right edge of the crease, converting a Diego Rovira pass into the semi-final winning score.
Opening Round Playoff Plans Announced: each division in the PASL-Pro will have a two-game opening playoff round, home-and-away. If the two teams split the games, a 15-minute mini-game will follow the second game and determine the winner.
In the Southwestern Division, Las Vegas Legends will play Toros Mexico. In the Pacific Division, the San Diego Sockers will be facing either Turlock Express or Tacoma Stars in the opening round depending on their final results.
On 2/23, both opening games (LV/MEX, TUR-TAC/SD) will be played at the Valley View Casino Center, with LV/MEX at 3:30 and TUR-TAC/SD at 7pm.
On 2/24, the second legs will be played at the Orleans Arena – Las Vegas, again MEX/LV at 4:00 and TUR-TAC/SD at 7pm. The winners advance to the The Ron Newman Cup semi-finals on March 10th at the VVCC.
