Wings To Host National Quarter-Final Playoff Game
The Wichita Wings have clinched the supporters shield in the Major Arena Soccer League2 Midwest Division. Earning the #1 seed in the division will see the Wings host a quarter-final playoff game on Wednesday March 30th, at Hartman Arena. Kickoff is set for 7:05 P.M. CT
The Wichita Wings enter the postseason spearheaded by team captain Kevin Ten Eyck, who is coming off his MASL ALL-League 2021 season as the 2022 team leader in multiple categories including; overall points (26), assists (13), power play goals (4), and blocked shots (14).
The winner of Wednesday's matchup punches a ticket to join the final four remaining teams in Muskegon, Michigan, where one of the league’s longest tenured members will be hosting the semifinals and finals on April 8 and 10.
The Muskegon Risers, whose operation launched in 2014, will serve as host for the three-games that will determine the league’s 2021-22 championship.
Semi-finals games will be Friday, April 8 at 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. ET, with the M2 title tilt set to kickoff at 3:00 p.m. ET on April 10.
“Muskegon is one of the model members in all of M2 and has one of the best facilities in the league as well, so we’re thrilled to be able to bring our best teams to Michigan,” Commissioner Chris Economides said. “They are one of the best supported and best run teams in the league, so they have more than earned the right to host our marquee weekend. We can’t thank Matthew Schmitt and his staff, the Risers fans, and all of Muskegon enough for stepping forward to be part of these special three days.”
Risers Director of Operations, Matthew Schmitt, said the team and city would work hard to make it a memorable weekend.
"The Muskegon Risers organization works relentlessly to serve our community through soccer at the highest level possible. Being selected as the host site for MASL2's Championship Weekend speaks to this organization's steadfast commitment to our mission,” Schmitt said. “The best arena soccer teams in our league will be on full display, and from April 8 through 10, arena soccer fans around the country will be focusing their attention here. We're excited to witness the positive impact of this event on local players, fans, and business partners alike.”
Only the Cleveland Crunch are assured a spot in the final four. The defending champion Crunch finished the regular season with the No. 1 overall postseason seed. They will choose their Friday opponent from one of the three remaining teams. The two teams Cleveland doesn’t select as its opponent will meet in the other semi-final.
It could be Muskegon as one of the other three teams. The Risers, the No 2 seed in the Eastern Division, will host the Chicago Mustangs on Saturday, April 2 at 7 p.m. at Mercy Health Arena for the right to advance.
The western conference matchup is already set as the San Diego Sockers will host the RGV Barracudas on Sunday, April 3 at 12:30 p.m. PDT.
