Storm drop finale 20-5
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. (April 5, 2009) - The Chicago Storm's inaugural season in the Xtreme Soccer League finished on a disappointing note in a 20-5 loss to the Milwaukee Wave at the Sears Centre on Sunday.
Andy Rosenband put the Storm (7-13) on top 2-0, getting loose at the back post and depositing Will Kletzien's nice feed.
But the Wave dominated the game after that, scoring the next seven goals. Carlos Clay scored his first goal of the season with 6:50 to go in the second quarter, a 3-pointer. But it was 14-5 Wave at half.
Ian Bennett finished the season with 35 points to lead the Storm.
