Kevin Ellis Named Week 8 Player of the Week

KANSAS CITY (Jan. 16, 2020) – The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) announced today that Kansas City Comets midfielder Kevin Ellis was named the SporTurf Player of the Week for Week Eight. This is Ellis’ first Player of the Week award in only his second week of MASL action this season.

The Team of the Week is voted on each week by MASL fans and MASL teams. Ellis was the top vote earner with fans and MASL teams, while teammate Leo Gibson and Monterrey Flash forward Hugo Puentes tied with the second-most votes in each poll.

Ellis returned to the Comets last week but returned to form at home on Friday night. He put the Comets ahead in the final minute of the first half, then added four more goals in the second half to guarantee his team the victory.

The Kansas City Comets play a home-and-home series with the Milwaukee Wave this weekend, facing the defending champs at home on Friday with a kickoff of 7:05 p.m. CT, then heading to Milwaukee for a Monday morning match at 11:07 a.m. CT. Both games can be seen live on the streaming home of the MASL, MASLtv.
