by Jim Fossell

St. Charles, MO (November 24, 2017) – The St. Louis Ambush (0-3) travel to Iowa to battle the Cedar Rapids Rampage (1-3) this Sunday, November 26 at 3:05 p.m. CT. The Ambush are looking to nail down their first win of the 2017-18 season and they will face the challenge of playing three games on the road in a seven-day span.

To say these two teams are familiar with one another would be an understatement. The Ambush and Rampage have met five times in regular-season play since the Rampage entered the league in 2015 (Cedar Rapids holds a 3-2 advantage in those games) and have also clashed in a handful of exhibition matches. 

Players and coaches have also found themselves working for both sides at different times, including:

  • New Ambush player/Head Coach Hewerton filled the same role with the Rampage last season and played with Cedar Rapids the past two seasons.
  • Ambush Goalkeeper Coach Mark Litton and Assistant Coach Tony Shelby held those same positions with the Rampage last season.
  • Ambush midfielder Corey Adamson appeared in eight games with the Rampage during the 2015-16 season.
  • Ambush defender Rob Acosta appeared in 22 games with the Rampage over the past two seasons (2015-16 and 2016-17).
  • Rampage midfielder Bobby Hurwitz appeared in one game with the Ambush during the 2015-16 season.
  • Rampage midfielder Gordy Gurson spent parts of two seasons (2014-15 and 2015-16) with the Ambush, appearing in 19 games.
