TONY WALLS NAMED TO MASL TEAM OF THE WEEK
St. Charles, MO (January 2, 2020) -- St. Louis Ambush forward Tony Walls became the first member of the team to be named to the Major Arena Soccer League's Team of the Week for the 2019-20 season, the league announced today.
The Ambush played and won two games during Week Six and Walls played a key role in both wins. Tony posted two goals and an assist in the 7-6 win over the Tacoma Stars on December 27, then came back and tallied three goals and an assist in the 7-6 triumph over the Kansas City Comets on New Year's Eve.
Walls leads the Ambush in points (13), goals (nine), is second on the team in points per game average (2.3) and is tied for second in assists (four).
Walls and the Ambush head to Mexico for two games this weekend, facing Soles de Sonora (2-5) on Friday, January 3 at 9:00 p.m. CST and the Monterrey Flash (6-0) on Sunday, January 5 at 5:05 p.m. CST. Both games are the only scheduled matches against each of the respective opponents for the 2019-20 regular season.
After starting the season 0-3, the Ambush bounced back to triumph in their next three games. The team now faces the task of keeping that winning streak alive as they kick off a three-game road swing that starts in Sonora on Friday and ends in Milwaukee on January 12.
Sonora will be looking to bounce back from an 8-7 loss to San Diego in their last outing, while Monterrey will be looking to remain the only undefeated team in the Major Arena Soccer League after winning their first six contests.
Following their two games in Mexico, the Ambush square off with the Milwaukee Wave on Sunday, January 12 at 1:07 p.m. at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena. The next Ambush home game is slated for Friday, January 17, when Utica City FC visits the Family Arena for a 7:35 p.m. match.
Single game tickets for the 2019-20 campaign are now on sale and can be purchased at the Family Arena box office or at ticketmaster.com. Groups of 10 or more can purchase their discounted tickets by calling the Ambush office at 636-477-6363.
