Gibson Named MISL Player of the Week
ROCKFORD, Ill. -- Rockford Rampage forward Leo Gibson was named Major Indoor Soccer League Player of the Week, the league announced Monday.
Gibson recently was acquired from the Philadelphia KiXX, and his first two matches with the Rampage were incredibly productive. He tallied seven goals and 15 points over the weekend, doubling his season points total to 30.
In his first match for Rockford on Friday, Gibson had two two-point goals during an 11-8 loss to the Baltimore Blast. He then followed that up with a career-best performance against his former KiXX teammates. Gibson netted five goals and 11 points during the Rampage's 34-15 victory over the host KiXX on Sunday. He surpassed his previous single-game career highs of four goals and eight points, which he ironically set Dec. 4, 2009, against Rockford.
For the season, Gibson has 14 goals and 30 points in 11 games.
Rockford wraps up its 2009-2010 season at 5:05 p.m. Sunday, March 21, at La RaZa de Monterrey.
