NICK VORBERG MISL PLAYER OF THE WEEK; VICTOR QUIROZ TEAM OF THE WEEK!
Vorberg's recorded shutout against Blast as Wave took pair of wins during weekend.
The Major Indoor Soccer League announced on Tuesday that Milwaukee Wave goalkeeper Nick Vorberg has been named the MISL Player of the Week for the second week of the 2013-14 regular season. Vorberg only conceded two goals in two games, including a shutout of the Baltimore Blast, as the Wave continued their perfect start to the season.
Vorberg became the first visiting goalkeeper to shut out the Blast at home in the club’s 34-year history as he made 14 saves in an 8-0 win on Saturday night. The highly-anticipated clash between the MISL’s past two champions had playoff-type intensity, with Vorberg coming up with big saves to keep his side on top throughout the second half.
Joining Vorberg on the MISL Team of the Week is his teammate Victor Quiroz, who also put in a strong performance against the Blast. Quiroz blocked three shots, and only committed one foul, as the Wave were able to stand firm despite being outshot 36-10 in the contest.
The MISL continues this weekend with two contests, with a rematch between the St. Louis Ambush and Missouri Comets on Friday night opening the holiday action. The Syracuse Silver Knights will then visit the Pennsylvania Roar on Sunday afternoon as they look to record their fourth win of the season.
All of this weekend’s action can be seen on YouTube.com, with in-game updates available on Twitter (@MISLSoccer) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/MajorIndoorSoccerLeague).
