On Thursday night, the Mississauga MetroStars will take on the Kansas City Comets at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre.
Five days after their first home game of the season, the MetroStars return to the their home turf to play the Comets, who haven’t played since the opening weekend of the season. The Comets lost that game 10-6 and haven’t played since, so the momentum could be with the MetroStars, who annihilated the Florida Tropics 10-0 on Saturday.
A potential factor in the MetroStars victory was that the Tropics had to leave some players behind for their trip north of the border. Because of Canadian immigration laws and rules regarding work permits, the Tropics had to leave plenty of players back in the States, and were forced to sign a bunch of local, Canadian players to play the game.
The MetroStars took full advantage of the opportunity, as another goal from Dwayne De Rosario and a hat trick from Mo Babouli lead the home side to a comfortable 10-0 victory.
