The second game Saturday night resulted in two players from each squad being named to the Team of the Week following the St. Louis Ambush’s 7-6 come from behind win over the Kansas City Comets.
From the Ambush, midfielder Lucas Almeida notched a second quarter goal and then with 1:19 left in the fourth quarter, connected with Sam Guernsey to assist on the game winning goal. Defender Vadim Cojocov netted back-to-back second half goals to bring the Ambush within one goal with 13:14 left to play in the game.
