B-52s Downed by Undefeated Mustangs
Wichita were knocked out of the US Open Arena Soccer Championships on Saturday after a 5- 10 loss to the undefeated Chicago Mustangs. The B-52s opened the scoring with a midfield lob from Lawter that caught Mustang keeper Flores way off of his line. Chicago responded with 3 goals to take the lead, only until new signing Ordell hammered in two on his B-52 debut to equalize before the end of the first quarter. Chicago managed to hold Wichita goalless in the second, while netting two of their own to lead 5-3 going into halftime. Chang cut the deficit to one after linking up with Cordoves at the start of the third quarter, but five Mustang goals followed to close out the third, and essentially the game. Pittman grabbed the only goal in the fourth.
Wichita move to 6 and 7 in the league, with three games left of the season. Chicago move to 14 and 0, have clinched the Eastern Division Title, and are the highest scoring team in the league, averaging almost 12 goals per game.
The B-52s travel to Tulsa this Friday (7th) for the fourth and final meeting with the Revolution of the season, the second in Tulsa. Back at Hartman Arena two days later on Sunday, February 9th for our last home game of the season against the Dallas Sidekicks for Fan Appreciation!
