KANSAS CITY (January 19, 2018) – The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) announced today that Franck Tayou of Soles de Sonora was named the Week Twelve Player of the Week. This is the first Player of the Week award for Tayou this season, although he’s been named to the Team of the Week five times. 

After a slow start, Soles de Sonora is climbing the table in the Southwest Division. Tayou is a big part of that. In Week 12 he had a nine-point weekend, scoring three goals and an assist against El Paso on Friday, then five goals against Milwaukee on Saturday.

Tayou already has a goal in the books this week as his team defeated the RGV Barracudas on Wednesday and he hopes to add to his tally when Sonora hosts the San Diego Sockers in the MASL Game of the Week on Saturday, January 20th at 9:05 p.m. ET.

Fans can watch this match, along with every MASL match every week, on MASLtv, the streaming home of the Major Arena Soccer League
