The Sockers had been tied with the Sioux Falls Storm of United Indoor Football, who set the old record of 40 from 2005-08.
Kraig Chiles scored a career-high eight goals. He had a hat trick by halftime and scored four goals in the fourth quarter, finishing with a league-leading 19 goals in four games. Eduardo Velez added a hat trick with an assist as the Sockers jumped out to a 8-0 lead before conceding their first goal.
The Sockers haven't lost since Dec. 27, 2010, 9-8 in overtime to the California Cougars. Their winning streak began two days later with a 7-5 victory against the San Diego Fusion.
