Chris Toth Named MASL Player Of The Week

San Diego Sockers goalkeeper Chris Toth has been named the Major Arena Soccer League’s Player Of The Week for week four. Toth, who earned his first POTW award, was also named to the MASL Team Of The Week on Tuesday. He is the first San Diego player to earn the weekly individual honor this season.

The Sockers are one of only three teams remaining undefeated with a 4-0 record.Toth has two of those wins for the Sockers, including last Sunday night against the Ontario Fury. The veteran goalkeeper saved all 16 shots he faced, recording the first shutout for any goalkeeper this season and the first of his storied career. He also leads the league in save percentage (.833) and goals against average (2.50).

“The guys played great in front of me and allowed me to see all of the shows clearly,“ said Toth. “It was a total team effort to get the shutout.”

It will be SoCal Soccer Night and the first 2,500 fans will receive a free Sockers Team Poster, which they can have autographed after the game by the player.
