Wave season comes to an end in semifinals

From staff reports

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Wave's furious rally to win Game 2 of the MISL semifinals on Monday, spirited though it was, could not carry into the Game 3 “mini-game,” and the Missouri Comets advanced to the championship series with a 6-2 victory.

Milwaukee came back from three points down in the fourth quarter of Game 2 at the U.S. Cellular Arena, grabbing a 12-9 win in front of a noisy crowd of 4,236 and leaving these rivals to again head to the mini-game, as they did in 2013.

And the result was the same, the Comets again breaking the Wave's hearts in the extra contest. Brian Harris scored just 26 seconds in and added another at the 8:53 mark to put the Comets up 4-0.

“You get some guys who have special games,” Wave coach Keith Tozer said of Harris, who also had a 3-point shorthanded goal in Game 1.

Missouri will play either Baltimore or Syracuse in next weekend's finals. Baltimore, with a 1-0 lead over the Silver Knights, hosts Game 2 on Monday.
