The MASL’s Central Division received a shake-up on Friday afternoon as the Cedar Rapids Rampage and St Louis Ambush announced a trade of players.

The Rampage receive forward Victor France. In his third MASL season, France is tied for 12th in points in the MASL with nine and is tied for 8th with six goals. Last year, the Brazilian had 13 goals and five assists in 14 games, despite playing for the lowest scoring team in the league.

The Ambush will receive Pablo Da Silva and Antonio Aguilar.

Pablo brings ten years of professional indoor soccer experience to the Ambush. A native of Florianopolis, Brazil, he has played for the Baltimore Blast, Milwaukee Wave, Chicago Soul and the Rampage. He’s got three championships under his belt and in the four games played this season, he has posted four goals and two assists.

Aguilar comes to the Ambush having played for the Chicago Mustangs and Cedar Rapids Rampage.  The left footed midfielder hails from Hammond, Indiana and earned 53 points while attending Depaul University.  He won the championship while representing the USA in the NEYMAR 5v5 in Brazil and won the World Soccer 5’aside while representing the USA in Dubai.

Da Silva and France will be eligible to play for their new teams in this weekend’s matches. Aguilar will be eligible to play for St Louis in Week 7.
