MKE WAVE LOOK TO ADVANCE IN MASL PLAYOFFS SATURDAY AFTERNOON AT UW-MILWAUKEE PANTHER ARENA AGAINST DEFENDING CHAMPION CHICAGO MUSTANGS.
Game Two: Saturday, March 7th, 3pm at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena. Tickets on sale now at MilwaukeeWave.com.
Your Six-Time Champion MKE Wave look to bounce back after dropping Game One of the 2015 MASL Ron Newman Cup Playoffs in Chicago last Thursday, 6-3.
The Mustangs held the Wave scoreless in the second half of game one with goals coming from Hewerton, Efrain “Wilo” Wilson and two goals by Taylor Bond, including an empty net goal against MKE Wave sixth attacker #28 Jonathan Greenfield.
“We played a team tonight that just wanted it a lot more than we did." said Head Coach Giuliano Oliviero after game one. “I don’t think all of our players realize that this is the playoffs, this is another level and you’ve got to play that much harder in the postseason. We didn’t do that in the second half.”
Game Two is set for this Saturday afternoon, 3pm at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena with a 15-minute mini game three, if necessary.
“Our first objective is to win game two in regulation time and send it the to the mini game.” said Head Coach Giuliano Oliviero. “Our energy during the second half of game one in Chicago wasn’t the greatest but this time we’re playing in front of our fans and we’ve got home field. I think your going to see alot of great energy, start to finish on Saturday.”
The winner of this series will meet the number one seed, Missouri Comets in the MASL Central Division Championship, Thursday, March 12th at Independence Events Center.
Missouri finished the regular season undefeated with a 20-0 record. The Comets are 2-0 against the Wave and 3-0 against the Mustangs this season.
WE HATE CHICAGO 2:
There is a thin line between love and hate and it’s called the Wisconsin/Illinois State Line. Its not that we hate Chicago we just think they are beneath us, well in fact, they are!
