Kansas City Comets


Andre Braithwaite named Honorable Mention

KANSAS CITY (November 14, 2017) – Kansas City Comets’ defender Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Flores was announced today as a member of the Major Arena Soccer League’s (MASL) Week Three Team of the Week. This is Flores’ first career selection to the Team of the Week and the first for a Comets player this season.

Fellow Comets defender Andre Braithwaite was named Week Three Honorable Mention after scoring two goals in his first game back with the Comets in two games.

The Comets are off until after the Thanksgiving Holiday. They travel to Milwaukee, WI to face the Wave on December 1st before returning home to host the Cedar Rapids Rampage on December 3rd at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena. Tickets for that game can be found here.

The MASL Team of the Week is selected using the Stars awarded at each game and by soliciting nominations from each team. Players nominated by teams were each awarded three points and stars were awarded 3 points (1st Star), 2 points (2nd star) and 1 Point (3rd star) respectively.

The full MASL Team of the Week is below:
Boris Pardo (San Diego Sockers) – Pardo only allowed three goals on 17 shots to the Tacoma Stars, helping the Sockers to a big 8-3 Pacific Division win.

Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Flores (Kansas City Comets) – Nacho helped the Kansas City defense hold Milwaukee’s league-leading offense under their goals per game average. The second-year defenseman also contributed a goal and two assists for the Comets.
Lucas Montelares (Florida Tropics) – Montelares helped the Tropics jump out to a 4-1 lead over the Rampage late in the second half, then provided an assist late in the game to help preserve the win in Florida’s home opener.

Ian Bennett (Milwaukee Wave) – Bennett scored two goals in two games this weekend and added an assist to his point total on Saturday against the Ambush. He now leads the league in goals and points and has been a big factor in Milwaukee’s unbeaten run so far this season.
Bruno Ramos (Harrisburg Heat) – Ramos scored two goals for Ontario in one of the most exciting games of the weekend. His first goal in the third quarter brought the Heat even with the Fury for the first time in the game, then he added a 2nd goal in the period to help his team pull out the win.

Kraig Chiles (San Diego Sockers) – Chiles accounted for half of San Diego’s offense, scoring four goals against the Stars. The team’s longest tenured veteran continues to lead his team with 9 goals already this season.
