MASL Playoffs Game 1 - Thursday in KC 7:35pm
The Six-Time Champion Milwaukee Wave are geared up and ready to go for the first round of the MASL Playoffs Thursday night in Kansas City against the rival Comets.
Kick-off is scheduled for 7:35pm CDT from Siverstein Eye Centers Arena in Independence, Missouri.
"We've got a new season beginning on Thursday and it's very exciting," said Milwaukee Wave Head Coach Giuliano Oliviero. "We had a great year but so did the Comets. They (Kansas City) have a lot of experience and worked hard to get the two seed in the division. All we want to do is to stay focused, continue to do what we did in the regular season and try not to beat ourselves with bad decisions."
This will be the eighth playoff meeting between the Wave and Comets in the past nine years.
