January 11, 2018 - Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) - Syracuse Silver Knights
The Jamaican's performance against Florida propelled Syracuse to victory
Kenardo Forbes has been named to the MASL Team of the Week for the second time this season. His performance at Florida on Saturday pushed Syracuse to a record over .500 for the first time since the beginning of the season.
Forbes scored the game winning goal in overtime against the Tropics to give Syracuse its second overtime victory of the season. The Jamaican completed a hat trick with the goal. This marks the second time Forbes has scored a hat trick this season. His first hat trick was back in week six - also against Florida. Forbes earned MASL Team of the Week honors for that performance as well.
Forbes becomes the first Silver Knights player this season to earn two MASL Team of the Week honors. This is the fifth week this season that a Syracuse player has been selected to the MASL Team of the Week. Previous Silver Knights to be named to the MASL Team of the Week this season include Slavisa Ubiparipovic, Joey Tavernese, and Ben Ramin.
With his hat trick, Forbes becomes the second Syracuse player to score double-digit goals this season. The midfielder has 11 goals so far this year. He is two goals behind Tavernese, who has the team lead in goals.
Forbes and the Silver Knights are back in action on Friday, January 12th, when the Baltimore Blast visit the Oncenter War Memorial Arena. Kickoff is set for 7:05 p.m. For tickets and more information, 315-303-7261 or log on to syracusesilverknights.com
