Rematch of Last Year’s Semi-Final Series to Open 2013-2014 Season
INDEPENDENCE, MO (September 3, 2013) – When the Missouri Comets were re-introduced in 2010, their first opponent was the Milwaukee Wave. In each of the past three seasons, the Comets and Wave paired up in the opening round of the MISL Playoffs. Most recently, the Comets scored game-winning goals in the final seconds of Games two and three to come from behind and win the 2013 MISL Semi-Final series. Now these two teams will face each other again in the Comets 2013-2014 Season Home Opener at the Independence Events Center on November 16th, 2013 at 7:35p.m. CT. The full 2013-2014 Schedule is expected to be announced in the next two weeks.
Opening night for North America’s top professional indoor soccer league will begin November 15th with the debut of the Pennsylvania Roar, who will host the Syracuse Silver Knights in their inaugural game at Santander Arena. Another MISL newcomer will play its inaugural game the second weekend of the season as the St. Louis Ambush will host the Roar at Family Arena on Friday, November 22, while the Silver Knights will also make their home debut that evening when they host their rival, the Rochester Lancers, at The Oncenter.
The Lancers will open their home slate the following night when they welcome the Silver Knights on the back end of the home-and-home series, and the defending champion Baltimore Blast will open their season that night when they host the Wave at 1st Mariner Arena.
