BOXSCORE | GAMESHEET | REPLAY | HIGHLIGHTS
The Wave was on fire and held the Comets away from the net until halfway through the third quarter. Both teams persisted with a flurry of goals in the last two quarters, but the Wave played a smart game to secure the win.
“The Comets have a lot of fight left in them, as you saw with their performance today,” said Milwaukee Wave Head Coach Guiliano Oliviero. “We know it’ll never be easy against the Comets, and we will definitely keep that in mind for Thursday.”
The Wave will once again take on the Kansas City Comets on April 18th to begin their playoff series.
“We’re a very confident team,” added Wave Head Coach Oliviero, “It’s going to be an interesting series. It’ll take a lot of hard work and intelligent play, but we’re looking forward to it.”
The Milwaukee Wave played with a total team effort to earn today’s win. Ian Bennett, Isaac Pereyra, Angel Curiel, Andre Hayne, and Guilherme Veiga all scored to bring the Wave in the lead. The Wave defense held the Comets off, and only let 5 of 20 shots pass.
“We are feeling really confident after this win.” Said Milwaukee Wave defender Daniel Chamale. “We’re playing well, everyone has great vibes, we are ready to keep playing. We know our game plan, and we know it’s going to work.”
Daniel Chamale was named Professional Construction INC’s ‘Hardest Working Player of the Game’ after leading the Wave defense in today’s win.
The Wave will now hit the road to the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena to take on the Kansas City Comets once again, at 7:35 PM CDT. You can watch this game LIVE and for FREE via MASLtv.
