On Saturday afternoon the Mississauga MetroStars will be back at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre to take on the undefeated Milwaukee Wave. Just two days after their heartbreaking overtime loss to the Baltimore Blast, the MetroStars will look to get back in the win column, which will be no easy task.
The Wave are currently first in the South Central division with a perfect 4-0 record and the second-best goal differential in the league, at +17. They haven’t played yet in 2019, so they will be rested, although they travel to Utica to play again on Sunday, so they may opt to rest a few players, or even travel with less, something that every team to come through Mississauga has done so far.
How To Watch:
Match Date/ Time: Saturday, January 5th, 2019. Kickoff is at 3:05 p.m. ET
