MILWAUKEE WAVE SHOCK DEFENDING MISL CHAMPIONS BALTIMORE BLAST WITH SHUT OUT WIN!

Saturday, November 23, 2013

Your SIX TIME CHAMPION Milwaukee Wave of the (MISL) Major Indoor Soccer League kicked off a busy weekend of action Saturday night at Baltimore Arena against defending MISL Champions, Baltimore Blast.

The game started with strong play by both Goalkeepers. No one scored until 9:21 left in the first. Wave newcomer #29 JC Banks got his first career goal in the MISL with an assist from #14 Nick Perera, giving the WAVE their first lead of the season in a game 2-0. Both teams had scoring chances but strong defense and great playing from Wave Goalkeeper #0 Nick Vorberg kept the score 2-0 after the 1st.

Defense continued to dominate the 2nd period.  The WAVE was slowly breaking down the Blast defense and created more scoring chances. With a break down from the Blast defense, #29 JC Banks got behind it and fired a 3 point shot just pass the Blast goalkeepers reach, to make it 5-0 WAVE just under half way through the period. About a minute later Blast headed in an own goal, with #79 Hewerton getting the credit from the long pass into the box. The goal resulted in a 3-point goal because Hewerton was the last Wave player to touch it and he was way behind the arc. Wave leads 8-0. Baltimore earned the first power play of the match with a boarding call against #79 Hewerton with 5 minutes remaining in the 2nd. Wave killed the power play from the Blast and kept lead over the Blast 8-0 at the end of the first half.

The Wave and Goal Keeper #0 Nick Vorberg continued their strong defensive performance throughout the second half to shut out the Baltimore Blast for the first time ever in their 34-year history. Milwaukee Wave 8, Baltimore Blast 0. Final.
