Milwaukee's Bennett named MISL Player of Week

Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - Milwaukee Wave forward Ian Bennett was named the Major Indoor Soccer League's Player of the Week on Tuesday for Week 12.

Bennett recorded 15 points in three games as the Wave maintained their lead in the MISL Central Division with wins against Rochester Lancers and the Wichita Wings.

Bennett opened the week with two goals and two assists in the Wave's 23-10 win against the Lancers last Monday, and then put in a pair of strong performances as Milwaukee split a weekend doubleheader on the road against the Wings.

He had two goals and four assists in the two matches, assisting on Joe Hammes´┐Ż 3-pointer that proved to be the match-winning goal on Saturday night in a 9-6 win over Wichita. Milwaukee lost to Wichita, 18-16, on Friday.

The Baltimore Blast solidified its spot atop the Eastern Division with an 18-2 win over the Norfolk SharX in Friday's other match, while the Missouri Comets defeated Norfolk 14-6 on Saturday.

Rochester downed the Syracuse Silver Knights, 12-10, in overtime in Saturday's other match.

The league resumes Wednesday when Syracuse visits Missouri and Milwaukee heads to Wichita for Thursday's lone match. Baltimore hosts Norfolk in Friday's only game, and the Blast host Rochester in Saturday's lone match.

On Sunday, Norfolk hosts Rochester and Milwaukee hosts Syracuse to wrap up the week's action.
