MASL TEAM OF THE WEEK – WEEK SIX                      

KANSAS CITY (Dec6, 2016) – As the divisional races are starting to heat up, the players of the Major Arena Soccer League are stepping up to the challenge. These are the best of the best for Week Six.


Stephen Paterson (Kansas City Comets) – This is the second time Paterson has earned a spot on this list. Paterson faced 19 shots on Saturday night against the previously unbeaten Chicago Mustangs and stopped them all. He recorded the first shutout for the Comets since the team returned to action in 2010 and the first in Kansas City arena soccer since 2005.


John Sosa (Kansas City Comets) – Sosa contributed two assists to the Comets 6-0 win on Saturday and led the team with 3 blocks to help preserve the shutout victory. 


Gordy Gurson (Cedar Rapids Rampage) – After being named the MASL Player of the Month for November, Gurson scored six goals in two games, including the game winning goal in each.
Ian Bennett (Milwaukee Wave) – Bennett led his team in their 14-6 win over the St. Louis Ambush. He scored 5 goals and assisted on another in the team’s biggest victory of the season.


Max Ferdinand (Milwaukee Wave) – Ferdinand was crucial to the Wave’s efforts as he was involved in HALF of their scores. He tallied three goals and four assists on the night.

Kraig Chiles (San Diego Sockers) – While putting your team on your back is not a requirement for inclusion on the Team of the Week, it seems to be a common theme in Week Six. Chiles scored 4 of the 5 San Diego goals vs the Tacoma Stars to lead his team to victory, including the game winner.
