by Jeff Husted

KANSAS CITY (Dec. 20, 2019) – The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) announced today that Utica City FC forward Ricardo Diegues has been voted the MASL Player of the Week. This is the first Player of the Week this season for Diegues and the second award won by a member of Utica City FC.

The Team of the Week is voted on each week by MASL fans and MASL teams. Harrisburg Heat’s Ty Hall came in second in this week’s voting.

Last weekend Utica City FC traveled to face their rivals, the Baltimore Blast. In a heated back-and-forth battle that saw multiple lead changes, Diegues stepped up to keep his team in the mix. Diegues scored four of the team’s first six goals, then added an assist on the overtime game winning score.

Diegues and Utica City FC are off this weekend. They will next be in action with a pair of home games against the Harrisburg Heat and Baltimore Blast on December 28 and 29. There are nine other matches in the MASL this weekend. For all the latest news and updates, visit MASLSoccer.com
