The Detroit Mechanix return to Grand Rapids Christian High School this Saturday, July 31 at 6:00 PM/ET. They’ll take on the Madison Radicals for the third and final time this season, as they look to put an end to their 46-game losing streak dating back to 2017.
The Mechanix are coming off their closest game of the season, losing by just five to the Indianapolis AlleyCats. They got off to a fast start, outscoring the AlleyCats 5-4 in the first quarter, but scored just eight goals in the final three quarters in the 13-18 defeat.
One positive takeaway from this past weekend’s game is the play of the Mechanix defense: Indy’s 18 goals marked the fewest the Mechanix had allowed all season. They totaled a season-high 14 blocks, consistently forcing turnovers against the reigning division champions. The defense will look to ride its momentum into a rematch with Madison; the Radicals defeated the Mechanix 29-18 in their last meeting.
Tickets for this game are available at the official team store.
