St. Charles, Missouri (November 24, 2023) – The St. Louis Ambush dropped a heartbreaker to the Milwaukee Wave in overtime Friday at The Family Arena. In an unusually-low scoring affair for professional indoor soccer, the Wave took home a 2-1 overtime win.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Ambush got on the board first in the eighth minute of the second quarter on a goal from Wil Nyamsi off a long pass from Curtis Kirby.

The Wave drew even in the seventh minute of the third frame when St. Louis’ Will Eskay sent an errant pass that found the foot of Milwaukee’s Derek Huffman, who was able to put it in the back of the net.

The fourth quarter was another scoreless stanza in a back-and-forth duel that saw both teams have multiple chances. The game went into sudden death overtime that saw Milwaukee’s Cesar Correa get off a shot out of the reach of Ambush goalkeeper Paulo Nascimento to nail down the 2-1 win for the visitors.

Next for the Ambush is a road trip across Missouri when they square off with their cross-state rivals, the Kansas City Comets, on Sunday, December 3 at 4:05 p.m. CT at the Cable Dahmer Arena in Independence. The next Ambush home game is slated for Saturday, December 9 when they host the Empire Strykers at 6:05 p.m. CT at The Family Arena.
