Team to Honor Military in 2013 Championship Rematch
INDEPENDENCE, Missouri (February 9, 2014) – The Comets will host this rematch of last year’s Major Indoor Soccer League Championship (MISL) game at the Independence Events Center on Sunday, February 9th with kickoff set for 3:10 PM. The Comets will be honoring the men and women of the United States Armed Forces in their annual Military Appreciation Game, sponsored by FreeStyle Graphics.
The Blast are tied with the Milwaukee Wave for first in the MISL standings, two and a half games ahead of the Comets. This will be the second meeting between the teams this season. In the last meeting, the Comets were even with the Blast after two quarters, but allowed seven points in the third quarter to eventually fall 14-6 in Baltimore.
This matchup is possibly another MISL Playoff preview. When each team is playing at their best, they are nearly impossible to stop. Offensively, the Comets offense has outscored Baltimore on the season, but the Blast’s stingy defense will be a challenge for Missouri. Goalkeepers Danny Waltman and William Vanzela are the best the MISL has to offer with the lowest points allowed per game averages.
The Comets will be honoring those who serve our country by wearing special military themed jerseys for the match. Then, in a special halftime event, the Comets will be hosting a U.S. Army Swearing-In ceremony.
After a week off, the Comets are ready to get back on the field. Vahid Assadpour still leads the league in points tallied with 55. The other half of Missouri’s dynamic duo, Leo Gibson has 17 assists, placing him in second overall. The Comets could clinch their spot in the MISL playoffs for the fourth consecutive season with a win on Sunday.
This exciting matchup is set for 3:10 PM on Sunday at the Independence Events Center. Members of the military can get tickets at a discounted rate. Tickets are still available by calling 855.4KC.GOAL (855.452.4625) or emailing email@example.com.
