Rockford Rampage indoor soccer player named Player of the Week
From press release
The Rockford Rampage’s recent three-game winning streak has led to some Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) honors of late.
Midfielder Geison Moura was named MISL Player of the Week Monday, Jan. 25, for his two-goal, one-assist performance (5 points) Saturday, Jan. 23, during the Rampage’s 22-12 rout of the host Philadelphia KiXX.
Last week, goalkeeper Ante Cop earned MISL Player of the Week following his MISL debut victory against the Milwaukee Wave Jan. 17.
Moura has posted a pair of two-goal efforts in the past three games. He had two goals—including the game-winner—during the Rampage’s 10-7 victory against Milwaukee Jan. 16 at the MetroCentre.
For the season, the third-year pro has five goals, an assist and 11 points. Moura’s 11 points rank fourth on the Rampage, and he is on pace to surpass his career-high 18 points of last season.
The Rampage (6-4) lead the MISL by a half-game over La RaZa de Monterrey (6-5). These two teams face one another at 7:05 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 30, at the MetroCentre.
The Rampage are going for their first four-game winning streak in their NISL/MISL history. The Rampage had two three-game winning streaks during the 2008-2009 National Indoor Soccer League season, including the final three games of the regular season to reach the NISL playoffs.
The MISL represents the major league of professional indoor soccer, featuring the finest indoor soccer players from around the world. The league consists of five member clubs in 2009-10: the Rockford Rampage, Baltimore Blast, La RaZa de Monterrey, Milwaukee Wave and Philadelphia KiXX.

The second- and third-place teams will square off in a home-and-home semifinal series with the winner advancing to battle the top seed. The top seed will receive a bye in the opening round and will host the MISL Championship Game. For more information about the MISL, visit the league’s official Web site, www.MISL.net.
