Kraig Chiles Named To The MASL Team Of The Week
The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) announced its Week Five Team of the Week honors which featured Sockers forward Kraig Chiles being named as one of the three forwards on the squad. Cesar Cerda and Boris Pardo made the honorable mention for their efforts. Players named to the Team of the Week will be eligible for the Week Five Player of the Week award. The Player of the Week is voted on by a combination of fans and the member teams of the MASL.
Kraig Chiles (San Diego Sockers) – Chiles got his two-game week off to a great start on Boxing Day against the Dallas Sidekicks. Chiles had three of his team’s first four goals, then added another goal and an assist in the fourth quarter. Then on Friday in Monterrey, he added another goal plus an assist to Cesar Cerda on the game-winning score.
Leo Gibson (Kansas City Comets) – Gibson’s Comets came into their game against their cross-state rivals badly in need of a win. Gibson did his part by scoring three goals for Kansas City, but helped his team along the way with three assists on top of that.
Robert Renaud (Milwaukee Wave) – Renaud has picked up right where he left off after a season-ending injury in 2017-2018. In what was a tight game to that point, Renaud helped the Wave pull away from the St Louis Ambush with two goals in the third quarter, then added another one in the fourth. He also had two assists on the day to help the Wave remain undefeated.
Victor Parreiras (Florida Tropics) – In Saturday’s match against the SeaWolves, Parreiras set the tone early. He scored the first goal of the game, then added another shortly after halftime before capping off the night with the final goal of the match just before time expired.
Guilherme Dos Santos (Florida Tropics) – Dos Santos has already had a career season so far, and it only got better with his performance this weekend. In the first Sunshine State Derby, Dos Santos had a goal and two assists, plus a block to help his Tropics to the win.
Andrew Coughlin (Utica City FC) – Coughlin posted his best game of the season on Sunday. Against the defending champion Baltimore Blast, he faced 18 shots, saving 15 of them for a .833 save percentage.
