Comets host Ambush for regular season home finale

The Kansas City Comets can gain a firm grip of their playoff future with an I-70 Series win.

The Kansas City Comets return home to Silverstein Eyes Centers Arena for one last time this regular season as they host the St. Louis Ambush.

The Ambush have no one listed on the injury report while the Comets have Lucas Rodriguez, Alain Matingou, and Mark Saxby all listed as probable.

The Comets enter the game with a slim lead over the Ambush, who have just one game remaining this season against the Milwaukee Wave next weekend after this weekend’s game in Kansas City.

The Comets hold a 10-10 record this season with three games on the road following Saturday’s I-70 Series finale. Kansas City is led by Leo Gibson with 29 goals and 27 points, but James Togbah has really shined lately with 17 goals in his second season in the MASL.

The 10-12 St. Louis Ambush are led by Zach Reget and Justin Stinson, who have a combined 39 goals and 20 assists.

St. Louis has surprisingly beaten Kansas City three times already this season, with KC winning just once after several years of Kansas City dominating St. Louis.

This is the most important game of the season for both teams, who continue to fight for a spot in the Ron Newman Cup playoffs. A Comets win would put Kansas City in the driver’s seat to make the playoffs after a one year absence, with three games to go.

Tickets are still available for the game set to kickoff at 7:05 PM CT on Saturday, March 23. If you can’t make it to the game, you can watch it on television on 38 the Spot or through a live stream on Masl.tv
