Rafa Dias Voted SporTurf Player of the Week

KANSAS CITY (Jan. 9, 2020) – The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) announced today that Milwaukee Wave goalkeeper Rafa Dias was named the SporTurf Player of the Week for Week Seven. This is Dias’ first Player of the Week award this season and he has earned his way to the Team of the Week twice.

The Team of the Week is voted on each week by MASL fans and MASL teams. Harrisburg Heat defender Dylan Hundelt was second in this week’s voting.

Dias joined the Wave in 2016 and was thrust into the starting role this season. He has taken advantage of the opportunity and currently leads the MASL in Goals Against Average and Save Percentage. On the road in Week 7, Dias posted an .824 save percentage, stopping 14 of the 17 shots he faced in the team’s fifth straight win.

The Milwaukee Wave return home on Sunday, January 12 to host the St Louis Ambush at 1:07 p.m. CT. Dias and his teammates will attempt to keep their side towards the top of the Eastern Conference table against their Midwest rivals. The game, along with the rest of the Week Eight matchups, will be streamed live on MASLtv
