            === Fire rookie Shipp earns Player of the Week honor ===
 
 New  York,  NY (SportsNetwork.com)  - Chicago  Fire rookie midfielder Harrison
 Shipp was named the Player of the Week on Monday for Week 10 of the 2014 Major
 League Soccer season.
 
 Shipp netted his first career hat trick and recorded an assist Saturday night,
 helping  the Fire earn  their first win of the season -- a 5-4 victory against
 the New York Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena.
 
 Shipp  opened  the scoring  in the  fourth minute when  he sent a right-footed
 shot from  outside the box  past Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles.
 
 He  then  gave the Fire  a 3-2 lead  in the 53rd  minute and completed his hat
 trick  five  minutes later when he  disposed Red Bulls defender Kosuke Kimura,
 dribbled into the box and slid his third goal of the game past Robles.
 
 The  MLS Player  of the Week is selected  each week of the regular season by a
 panel of journalists from the North America Soccer Reporters (NASR). The group
 consists of members of print, television, radio and online media.
