Sunday’s contest is the second of six meetings between the Ambush and Comets slated for the 2019-20 season. The Comets won the first match 6-4 when the two teams faced off November 30 at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena in Independence. Sunday’s match is the only one this weekend for each team.

Forwards Tony Walls and Duduca are the early point leaders for the Ambush (three each), while Duduca is the leader in goals with two. For the Comets, midfielder Kiel Williams is the points leader (four) and is tied with defender John Sosa for goals scored with two each.
