Comets 11 -5 Wave recap and photos

The Comets took the lead in the playoffs when they defeated the Wave at home. Milwaukee came out flying and dominated the opening half of the first quarter. The Comets withstood the initial onslaught with some excellent defending, a little bit of luck and stellar play by Danny Waltman.

The Comets played incredible defense and kept Milwaukee scoreless until the middle of the 4th quarter but held on to the lead. Missouri now needs just one more win to advance to the Championship game.

The next game is in Milwaukee. If the Comets win they move on to face Baltimore in the championship game. If the Wave wins that game, the two teams will play a "mini" 15 minute game to determine the winner.

The game can be watched online or you can attend a watch party hosted by the Comets Booster Club.
