Wave Loses More than Game in New YorkFebruary 24, 2013 - Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) - Milwaukee Wave
The Wave needed to win the rest of their regular season schedule in order to clinch the regular season championship from the Baltimore Blast.
The Lancers needed a victory to stay alive in the MISL Playoff hunt and that's just what they did by defeating the Wave 9-8.
It was a defensive first half with only 2 goals scored. The first from Milwaukee Wave Forward #14 Nick Perera; (Assist - #26 Ian Bennett). The second from Rochester Lancers Defender #8 Elliot Fauske; (Assist - #13 Stephan Basso).
Milwaukee Wave Forward and Rookie of The Year Candidate #7 Luan Oliviera started the scoring in the 3rd Quarter, only to have the Lancers answer back with a 3-Point Goal of their own from Forward #10 Mauricio Salles. Milwaukee closed out the quarter with a goal by #79 Hewerton and the team took a 6-5 lead into the final quarter.
Milwaukee extended their advantage to 8-5 when #26 Ian Bennett connected on a two point goal. The Lancers Fauske scored his second goal of the game to trim Rochester's deficit to 8-7. Later in the quarter Lancers forward Doug Miller was fouled inside the box by Milwaukee's Joe Hammes. On the restart, Miller blasted a shot into the net and gave Rochester their first lead of the game at 9-8. Milwaukee tried bringing in a sixth attacker, but couldn't manage any more scoring, and Rochester came away with the victory.
