ST CHARLES, Mo. — St. Louis Ambush forward Zach Reget has earned Team of the Week honors from the Major Arena Soccer League for Week Six of the 2018-19 season. It marks the second time Reget has earned the weekly accolade. Three other Ambush players, goalkeeper Paulo and defenders Axel Duarte and Felipe, received honorable mention from the MASL in the awards.
The Ambush played one game during Week Six, a 5-4 win over the Florida Tropics at the Family Arena on Saturday, January 5. Reget tallied two goals, including the game-winner, in that contest. He is having a stellar rookie season thus far. Zach is tied for fourth in the league in goals scored overall and also leads all rookie players in that category.
Duarte helped the Ambush stave off a Tropics’ comeback by blocking three shots in Saturday’s game. He currently leads the league in blocked shots with 13. Felipe contributed to the team’s offense and defense on Saturday, posting his first goal and first assist of the season while blocking two shots. Goalkeeper Paulo stopped eight Florida shots in 12 attempts in earning his third win of the season on Saturday.
The Ambush are back in action this Saturday, January 12, when they face the Milwaukee Wave at 1:05 p.m. CT at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena. Following that contest, the Ambush journey to Independence to duel the Kansas City Comets on Friday, January 18 at 7:35 p.m. CT.
