SAN DIEGO (Thursday, February 28, 2019) – The San Diego Sockers announced today that they have extended goalkeeper Boris Pardos contract for five years. As per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Its an absolute honor and privilege to continue to represent the San Diego Sockers for the upcoming future,stated Pardo. Being able to play for such a prestigious club and be alongside so many great soccer players is an environment that many around the league want to be a part of. I want to extend my deepest gratitude to the entire Sockers front office, coaches, teammates, and fans for believing in and giving me the opportunity to help contribute to achieving our ultimate goal…the clubs 15th Championship.

He joined the Sockers before the 201617 season and is in his first season as the teams number one goalkeeper after Chris Toth departed for rival Ontario in the offseason. The tandem was the best in the MASL last year.

Boris has been the consummate professional on and off the field since arriving in San Diego,said Sockers General Manager Sean Bowers. He is playing at an MVPcaliber level which has helped us to achieve a 141 record. Boris has earned this extension as there is no doubt that this is his team now and his teammates have the utmost confidence in him.

Pardo played three years with the Comets before joining the Wichita B 52s in the 201415 season. He returned to the Comets the following year for a season prior to coming to San Diego.
