Milwaukee Wave face Wichita B52’s at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena, win 12-4
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The six-time champion Milwaukee Wave returned home after a victory Saturday night, January 24th in Detroit to face the Wichita B52’s Sunday afternoon at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena and came out victorious thanks to a great team effort and a three-goal performance from #15 Tony Walls.
“The guys looked great right from the get go tonight. I’m very happy to see our target players get involved in the offense. Bato and Tony have been there for a while, then to see Stefan St. Louis get more and more comfortable at the position, with his new teammates, I’m really pleased. We are really coming into our own and it was just a total team effort all the way around this weekend,” Head Coach Giuliano Oliviero said.
With the Wave outshooting the Wichita B52’s 44 to 23, the Wave scored first and kept the lead for the rest of the game.
First half Milwaukee Wave goals came from #18 Stefan St. Louis (unassisted), #10 Luan Oliveria (assist #77 Marcio Leite), #28 Jonathan Greenfield (assist #20 Marcelo Fontana) and #10 Luan Oliveira (assist #77 Marcio Leite).
The Wichita B52’s only recorded one goal in the first half came from #20 Brady Bryant.
The Wichita B52’s came out in the second half by pressuring the ball, but the Wave kept attacking the goal, scoring eight more goals in the second half from #29 JC Banks, two goals from #26 Ian Bennett and #8 Bato Randoncic and scoring three goals from #15 Tony Walls.
The final score: Wave 12, Wichita B52’s 4.
