The Wave came back for the lead in the second quarter, going into halftime with a score of 5-3. The third quarter wrapped up with the Wave in the lead 6-4.

“We’re top of our division, and we’re in a really good place but there is still lots of work to do," said Oliviero. ”Now we’ll let the players rest up so we can be prepared for our match up on Monday against Orlando. We want to put our best foot forward!"
