The Missouri Comets (3-0) will try to extend their win streak tonight when they face the St. Louis Ambush (0-1) at 7:35 at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena.
Head coach Vlatko Andonovski looks forward to playing the Comets rival. "Every time we play St. Louis it's a game. It's that rivalry that was established long before I even played in the league and long before I started coaching. It's an instate rivalry that goes back 30 years. It's not just the players but the fans enjoy it and it is always a good show, a good game. "
The modern version of the rivalry has been rather lopsided; the Comets have won all nine meeting since the Ambush came back into the league.
The Comets will be without MVP Leo Gibson as he serves a two game suspension from an incident in Harrisburg and defender Alain Matingou is still unavailable due to an injury.
On the bright side, the suspension to the Comets' Brian Harris is over and he is ready to get his first game action of the season and speedy midfielder Kiel Williams is back also. Williams had to get a visa issue cleared up but is back in Kansas City and will be available.
The Comets head to Chicago Saturday to face the Mustangs at 7:05 p.m. CT in the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, IL.
