KANSAS CITY (Dec. 26, 2019) – The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) announced today that Ontario Fury forward Franck Tayou has been voted the SportTurf MASL Player of the Week. This is the first SporTurf Player of the Week award for Tayou this season, although he has earned the honor many times in his career, along with three MASL MVP awards.

The Team of the Week is voted on each week by MASL fans and MASL teams. Orlando SeaWolves’ Luiz Mota and Milwaukee Wave’s Max Ferdinand placed second and third, respectively, in this week’s voting.

Franck Tayou was welcomed to Ontario's Toyota arena with open arms and he rewarded the fans in attendance with a five-goal outing on Friday in the Fury's home opener victory. Then he followed that up with another five-goal effort, plus an assist for an 11-point weekend at home.

Tayou will try to keep his scoring output flowing when the Ontario Fury host Soles de Sonora on Saturday, December 28 at 6:05 p.m. ET. The game will be shown live on
