St. Charles, Missouri (January 6. 2022) -- The St. Louis Ambush play a pair of games on the road this weekend when they visit the Tacoma Stars on Friday, January 7 and Sunday, January 9.

On Friday, the Ambush and Stars do battle at 9:35 p.m. CST, followed by Sunday’s rematch at 7:05 p.m. CST. Both games are at the accesso ShoWare Center in Kent, Washington.

The Ambush enter the weekend with a 2-4 record after dropping their last two games to Dallas on December 30 and 31. Tacoma takes the field Friday with a 1-1 record. They have not played since December 18, when they defeated the Dallas Sidekicks. This weekend’s games are the only two between the Ambush and Stars scheduled for the 2021-22 regular season.
