MILWAUKEE (WITI) — After enjoying the holidays with family and friends, it’s right back to business for the six-time champion Milwaukee Wave with two games at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena, Saturday, December 27th at 1:00 p.m. vs Detroit Waza Flo and Wednesday, December 31st at 3:00 p.m. vs. the defending champion Missouri Comets.

“Detroit’s record does not indicate how good of a team they really are,” said Head Coach Giuliano Oliviero. “They play with a lot of heart and passion and our guys will need to be up to the task.”

The Wave are coming off a 9-3 win over the Tulsa Revolution and are currently in second place in the Major Arena Soccer League Central Division while the Detroit Waza Flo lost their previous game against the Chicago Mustangs 10-9.
