Leo Gibson Named to MASL Team of the Week
KANSAS CITY - The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) announced today that Kansas City Comets forward Leo Gibson was named to the Week 15 Team of the Week. This is Gibson's first selection to the Team of the Week this season, he is the fourth Comets player to win the honor. Goalkeeper Jeff Richey was also named Honorable Mention for the team.
Gibson, already the team's all-time leading scorer, added to his totals in an exciting win over the St Louis Ambush last Saturday. The veteran forward gave the Comets their first lead of the game early in the second quarter, then added three more through the rest of the game. His fourth goal, the game-winner, was scored only nine seconds after St Louis briefly tied the game.
Kansas City hopes to add to their win totals when they host the 8th Annual Pink Night against the St Louis Ambush this Friday, February 9. Gibson and his Comets teammates will be wearing special Pink Jerseys that will be auctioned off following the match to benefit The Ali Kemp Educational Foundation.
Tickets for Pink Night against the Ambush can be purchased here.
The Kansas City Comets have a long rich history of indoor soccer in KC, including the 2014 MISL Championship. For tickets and information call 888.9.COMETS (888.926.6387).
