Comets host streaky SeaWolves

This will be Kansas City’s first of four meetings with Orlando this season.

The unpredictable Kansas City Comets will host the Orlando SeaWolves, formerly the Cedar Rapids Rampage from 2015-2018.

The Comets have gotten into a pattern of giving up early goals, causing comeback after comeback each game. They never came back after last week’s loss to the Milwaukee Wave, who handed the Comets their second straight loss.

The Comets will be without Lucas Rodriguez for the second straight game, but Kevin Ellis will be fit as he looks to add to his impressive debut last week. The Comets are led by former MISL Most Valuable Player, Leo Gibson, who is towards the top of the leaderboards once again in assists(22), goals(19), and points per game(2.9).

The Orlando SeaWolves enter the match with no injuries and are led by former MASL Rookie of the Year, Gordy Gurson, who has tallied 19 goals and 13 assists this season.

Orlando have won three straight games away from home in the month of February, most recently an overtime win against the St. Louis Ambush on February 22.

Both the 7-7 Comets and the 6-5 SeaWolves are fighting for the second playoff spot in the South Central Division, which St. Louis currently holds.

Tickets are still available to watch the Comets face the SeaWolves for potentially Byron Alvarez’s debut since coming out of retirement. The game is scheduled for kickoff at 4:05 PM CT on Sunday, February 24, at Silverstein Eyes Centers Arena.
