“With the addition of Brett Petricek,” stated Ambush General Manager Jeff Locker, “along with Paulo, we now have two stellar goalkeepers and will be solid in the net under any circumstance.”

Petricek said, “I’m very happy and excited to be joining the Ambush organization today. The professionalism of the club from front office to back, my previous playing experience and relationship with Hewerton, the beautiful city of St. Louis, and the big signings and moves the club is making made it an easy decision to join the Ambush. Now let’s go win a championship!”
