The Missouri Comets have signed Jose Luiz Birche De Souza. I heard about this at the last game and was told he would be active as soon as possible. Apparently Coach wanted him active quickly after the defensive issues in the last game. He is supposed to be a big strong defender with experience in the league. I was also told his name was Luis Birche so he may not use the De Souza name.
Brazilian forward Tiguinho was at the last game but was not on the bench. His visa was approved and he is ready to go. Originally plans were to not use him in either game against Omaha but they plan may have changed as well.
Comets veteran Hate Houser was not at the game again. His Baker women were defeating McKendree University by a score of 2-1 to advance to the NAIA round of 16. Coach Roentved had disclosed in the interview in a previous post that Houser had also suffered a hamstring pull and the combination of his college team playing and the injury kept him out of the last game. He will be a game day decision for the rematch with Omaha Sunday.
