The Major Indoor Soccer League announced on Tuesday that Milwaukee Wave forward  #26 Ian Bennett has been named the MISL Player of the Week for the opening week of the 2013-14 regular season. Bennett had five goals, including the game-winner, as Milwaukee took a 23-21 overtime victory against the Missouri Comets on Saturday night to earn the award.

Bennett scored the final three goals of the game as the Wave recorded a dramatic comeback in the final three minutes after being six points down. The 11-point night was a career best for the Canadian Futsal international, with his game-winner coming 8:07 into the extra session.

Joining Bennett on the forward line on the MISL Team of the Week are a pair of players who each recorded hat tricks in their sides’ season-opening wins. Baltimore’s Marco Mangione had three goals as the Blast took a 19-8 win against Rochester on Saturday, while Syracuse’s Slavisa Ubiparipovic, the 2011 MISL Rookie of the Year, led the Silver Knights past the Pennsylvania Roar on Friday night in the opening game of the season.

Ubiparipovic’s teammate, Nelson Santana, joins him on the Team of the Week after his two goals and solid defensive play also factored into the Silver Knights’ victory. Missouri’s Leo Gibson takes the other defensive spot after a seven-point night in defeat against Milwaukee, while Baltimore’s William Vanzela takes the goalkeeper position after recording 13 saves on 17 shots in the Blast’s win against Rochester.

The Milwaukee Wave travel to Baltimore this Saturday, November 23 to face archrivals Baltimore Blast at 6:35pm. On Sunday, November 24th they take on MISL newcomers Pennsylvania Roar at 3:05pm CT. Watch ALL (MISL) Major Indoor Soccer League Games LIVE! And for FREE! via YouTube!
