MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (March 17, 2019) - The Six Time Champion Milwaukee Wave will tack another win onto their impressive record this season (17-3). The Wave didn’t need the luck of the Irish for today’s matchup, and played a strong game to come out on top over St. Louis 7-4.

The way our team has played all season long- we knew we had a great chance to win this game,” said Milwaukee Wave Head Coach Guiliano Oliviero. “We want to give St. Louis a lot of credit. They caught us off guard a little bit in the first half, but we adjusted and came out in the second half with a total team effort.”

The Ambush took the lead for the first two quarters of the game, going into halftime up 3-1. The Wave came back with intensity, finishing the game with 6 goals in the second half and only letting one more pass from the Ambush.

“We just brought different energy in the second half,” said Milwaukee Wave forward Max Ferdinand. “We got back to doing exactly what we’ve been doing all season. Sometimes you just need these types of close games going into the playoffs so we can be ready. This was a huge win for us.”

The Wave was named the South Central Division Champion, and secured a playoff spot after last week’s win against the Orlando SeaWolves.

The Milwaukee Wave will be back at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena on Saturday, March 23rd to take on the Florida Tropics. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:05pm CDT.
