Led by Copenhagen-born, Wichita Wings-bred head coach Kim Roentved, the Missouri Comets enter their second year in the Major Indoor Soccer League seeking recompense for last year’s semifinal loss. Approaching the end of a winning season that’s kept fans on the edge of their seats, the Comets’ powerhouse lineup includes the mononymous midfielder Geison whose 69 goals so far this season place him comfortably atop the league scoring charts and the cast list of every goalie’s night terrors. Teammate Byron Alvarez doubles the scoring threat, with a record of 55 vicious punches to the net that sets him among the league’s top five goal kickers.
The Comets will first take on cross-divisional opponents from Rochester, testing out a potential playoff matchup, before hosting last year’s league champion and Central Division rival the Milwaukee Wave. The Independence Events Center coddles fans with padded seats that make families more comfortable and outings with unhatched young less nerve-wracking.
