INDOOR: Bolts sweep on Arizona trek
By Scott French
The Anaheim Bolts have won three in a row -- four, including the Open Cup triumph -- and vaulted into third place in the Professional Arena Soccer League's Western Division after sweeping a set of games in Avondale, Ariz.
Enrique Tovar scored a hat trick to lead the Bolts (3-2) to a 6-2 victory Saturday night over the last-place Phoenix Monsoon (1-7), and Tomislav Colic's hat trick paced an 8-4 win in Sunday afternoon's rematch.
Mexican veteran Rafael Gaytan Espinoza, signed Friday, tallied twice in his debut Saturday.
Tovar leads the Bolts with nine goals.
Anaheim, which plays Friday night at Turlock and Sunday at the Anaheim Convention Center against Tacoma, is a game and a half behind two-time defending PASL Pro champion San Diego (4-0) in the West. Turlock (5-3) is in second, one game back, following a win Sunday over fourth-place Tacoma (3-3).
