Wings Keep Comets From Claiming Turnpike Trophy In A Sweep

Edvin Worley scored his only goal in the game with 1:36 left to play to give the host Wichita Wings a 12-10 victory over the Missouri Comets Friday in Major Indoor Soccer League play at Hartman Arena and prevented the Comets from clinching the inuagural I-35 Series and its Turnpike Trophy prize.

The Comets had taken a 3-0 lead in their six-game series this season in the rivalry, which was announced this week, before losing Friday.

Kevin Ten Eyke led the Wings with four points on a two-point goal and two assists and Frederico Moojen had three with a standard goal and an assist.

The Wings are in last place in the three-time Central Division, six games behind the league's best team, the Milwaukee Wave (8-0).

Aduato Neto had three points for the Comets on a two-point goal and an assist.

The Comets are in second place in the division, 2 1/2 games behind the Wave, who they play at US Cellular Arena in Milwaukee next Friday.

Both Missouri and Wichita resume their series next Saturday at Hartman Arena, with the Comets set to take the trophy home, should they win.
