The Saint Louis Ambush have their next game Feb. 25  versus the Milwaukee Wave. The Ambush currently have a record of 4-10  with 14  points and they find themselves in sixth place. 

This game versus Milwaukee is very important for the Ambush with the Wave being in third place with 28 points. The Ambush need to be in at least fourth place to make the playoffs.

The Ambush are going to be with William Eskay after being at training camp for the United States men’s futsal team. Eskay was also joined by one of the newest members by trade. Rafa Araujo was traded to the Ambush from the Baltimore Blast. The ambush traded Dom Alvardo for Araujo. Araujo has played nine games for the Blast, who are currently in  fifth place.  

On Feb. 25, it will be the fourth poster night and their annual Mascot game at halftime. They have local mascots from all over come and play soccer at the game. The team is looking forward to the game. 

“Some strategies that I’m implementing to secure a spot in the playoffs are to stay positive especially when things aren’t going the way you want them to.” forward Tristan Austin said. “Having a good mindset is really important for us as a group. We have to stick together. Especially in tight game situations.” 

Defender Sam Guernsey says that the Ambush making the playoffs will depend a lot on other teams losing and the Ambush winning all of their games. It seems out of the picture as of now, but a lot could change over the next few weeks.

Following the game, the Ambush 2 team will play their second home game.  The Ambush 2 team has only had away games this season to date. They are coached by assistant coach Donnie Alberty.  Their record this season  is 2-7 being in  fourth place behind the Muskegon Risers who are in third place.

The Ambush 2  played their last game on Feb. 10. 

 “One thing that I would love fans to know about the culture of our team is that we are very passionate for the game,” Ambush  two player  Brennon Austin said. “There isn’t one man on the roster that won’t give it his all everyday that he steps foot into the arena. We all are learning the indoor game and with the team being new we had to figure out what everyone’s play style was, but with how diverse all of us players are, we all have one thing in common and that’s the passion that we have for soccer.”

Alberty agreed.

“We have competed hard,” Alberty said.  “The transition from  

outdoor or local indoor to the professional indoor level typically takes a couple of years.  So,

We have to be realistic in our evaluation.  The team has been pretty upbeat all year and I would expect we will be in high spirits.”
