The Kansas City Comets will end the year with a visit to their closest rival, the St. Louis Ambush, on New Year’s Eve.
Having already met twice this season, the Comets won their home opener in November and the Ambush had an overtime win earlier this month. Tuesday’s game will be the second of three visits to The Family Arena this season Leo Gibson’s side.
The Ambush enter the game with a 2-3 record, coming off their second victory of the season over the Tacoma Stars. Led by head coach Hewerton Moreira, the Ambush have had players step up after losing several key players last season as Tony Walls leads the team with nine points in five games with six goals and three assists. Former Comet Stefan St. Louis is still searching for his first goal of the season, while another former Comet Andre Braithwaite opened his scoring account with the Ambush in Friday’s victory over the Stars.
The Comets also come off a victory over the Tacoma Stars. Leo Gibson has already racked up 14 points from seven goals and seven assists, but Ray Lee is fresh from his first ever hat trick for the Comets. Lou Misner might get his first road start on Tuesday, as Mark Saxby is questionable.
The Comets will look to keep the momentum going from Saturday’s win into Tuesday’s match with the first game of 2020 on Saturday against the Milwaukee Wave looming.
