SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Kenardo Forbes has been named to the MASL Team of the Week for Week Six. He is the second Silver Knight to be named to a Team of the Week this season.

This marks the second time that Syracuse has had a player named to the MASL Team of the Week. Back in Week 2, Slavisa Ubiparipovic was named to the Team of the Week. The Bosnian totaled three goals and three assists over two games that weekend.
Andrew Coughlin also earned an honorable mention for this week's Team of the Week. He recorded a new career high in saves with 24 against Florida on Friday.
