KANSAS CITY (Jan. 6, 2017) – The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) is excited to announce the December winners of the Player, Coach and Goalkeeper of the Month awards.

Goalkeeper of the Month – Brett Petricek (Cedar Rapids Rampage)

Player of the Month – Ian Bennett (Milwaukee Wave) 
After a rough start to the season, Bennett has helped the Wave climb back into contention. The team had a 3-1 record in December, in large part to Bennett’s 20 goals. In fact, he scored at least 6 six goals in three of the four games of the month. He continues to prove dangerous as he also finished the month with the league’s highest shooting percentage (.769).
