SAVAGE DEFEAT MILWAUKEE 12-10 FOR FIRST MASL WIN
CHIHUAHUA, Mexico - Savage finally got their first win in the Major Arena Soccer League.
With a very good start and solid defense the Chihuahua team managed to close the first period with 4 goals, a wide advantage over the visiting team that had only one goal.
For the second quarter the Milwaukee team was able to overcome and began to add goals, and although the wild team kept their advantage, the Wave team took this period.
In the final stretch of the third and fourth periods the team from the United States remained only one goal behind and as we are accustomed to the Chihuahua team for their close games, the nerves grew in the fans looking for the first victory, but it was 18 seconds before the end of the game when an own goal by Leite managed to give the definitive victory to the Savage team and the sixth defeat of this season for the Milwaukee team.
