The Wave extended their winning streak to a franchise record 12 games after a 9-5 victory over the Chicago Soul. It was the Wave’s second win in a row against the Soul, and the fourth against them on the season.
The Wave got things started with a goal by Jonatan Santos midway through the first quarter, giving them a 2-0 lead. Thanks to stellar defense, neither team scored a goal the remainder of the quarter and the Wave remained up 2-0.
The defensive battle continued throughout most of the second quarter, but Ian Bennett scored his third goal in two games to extend the Wave’s lead to 4-0. Carlos “Chile” Frias would put one in the net to trim the Wave’s lead to 4-2 heading into half.
In the third quarter Giuliano Oliviero made it 6-2 in favor of the Wave. The Wave’s lead remained at four. In the fourth Hewerton would blast a 3-pointer to make it 9-2. Chicago’s Carlos Munoz answered back with a goal of his own for Chicago cutting the Wave’s advantage to 9-5. Marcel Feenstra would keep the Soul at bay for the remainder of the quarter to give the Wave their 12 straight win.
