KANSAS CITY (Nov 17, 2016) – Kansas City Comets goalkeeper Stephen Paterson was named the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) Week Three Player of the Week this afternoon. The Player of the Week is awarded by fan vote each week of the season.

Paterson is in his second year with the Comets, but the first as the starter. So far this season Paterson is one of the league leaders in wins (2) and is fourth in the MASL in save percentage (.647). Last Sunday, he had 8 saves and only allowed 3 goals in Kansas City’s win over the St. Louis Ambush. He set the tone for the victory though by scoring the game’s first goal. Paterson’s goal was the first score from the foot of a goalkeeper in the history of the MASL.

Paterson’s Comets take their first road trip of the season to face the Milwaukee Wave on Saturday, November 19th at 7:05 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on the league’s new video streaming channel, MASLtv
