THE FACTS vs ROCHESTER...
This will be the third meeting between these two teams this season.
MATCH 1: 13-6 Wave.
In this matchup the Wave came out strong with a three point goal by Josh Rife and a score by Marcelo Fontana to give them a 5-0 lead at the end of one. Although Doug Miller scored to make it 5-2, the Wave continued to pile on with three point goals by Nick Perera and Joe Hammes, to give the Wave a 11-2 advantage heading into the half. Miller would add his second goal of the game early in the third quarter, and Rochester would score again in the fourth to put the game at 11-6. Fontana would add another goal to put the game out of reach and give the Wave a win.
MATCH 2: 14-12 Wave.
The Wave were led by Luan Oliveira who completed a hat trick along with two assists. Oliveira got the scoring going in the first to put the Wave up 2-0. Doug Miller would come back with two scores of his own, but goals by Marcio Leite and Ian Bennett put the Wave ahead 6-4 after the first quarter. Javier Ortiz tied things up early in the second, but Hewerton and Oliveira would each score to put the Wave on top 10-6 after two quarters of play. Oliveira completed his hat trick with the only goal of the third quarter, but a crazy fourth made the game interesting. Doug Miller scored first on a penalty kick, but Bennett scored again to give the Wave a 14-8 lead. Paul Craig and Stephen Basso scored to trim Rochester’s deficit to 14-12, but they couldn’t muster another goal, and the Wave would escape with a victory.
