KANSAS CITY (Feb 16, 2017) – The Major Arena Soccer League announced today Milwaukee Wave midfielder Ian Bennett as the Week Sixteen Player of the Week. This is Bennett’s second Player of the Week award this season. He was also named the Player of the Month in December.

This past weekend, Bennett had his sixth game this season with 3 or more goals. Against division rival, Cedar Rapids Rampage, the veteran midfielder scored three goals on only five shots while leading his team to an 8-2 victory. The win put the Wave in playoff position with a half-game lead on the Rampage.

The Wave host the Kansas City Comets on Saturday night in a match that could go a long way in determining the Central Division playoff spots. Currently Milwaukee sits 1.5 games behind the Comets with two games to play. They could clinch a postseason berth if they beat the Comets and Cedar Rapids loses to Harrisburg Heat and Chicago Mustangs.
