The score remained 2-0 going into halftime.
In the second half, the Sockers FC got to attack down wind as Andres Felipe Rodriguez scored his 2nd goal in the 51st minute.
Houston Regals, who did not have a deep bench, looked tired and deflated as the Sockers scored a barrage with 3 more goals: Galindo(55'), Faria(69'), and Jack Chambers hit the exclamation point with a goal in stoppage time (90').
