  • Leo Gibson, the MISL scoring and assists champion, is a member of the All-MISL first team. Teammates Brian Harris and Vahid Assadpour are members of the All-MISL second team and Max Toloute was chosen a member of the All-MISL rookie team.
    In addition, Gibson is a finalist for the MISL Most Valuable Player Award, Harris is a nominee for Defender of the Year and Touloute is a finalist for the Rookie of the Year. Those honors will be announced Sunday at the site of the MISL championship game.
    That site could be the Independence Events Center if Syracuse downs Baltimore in its semifinal playoff series. The Blast led the series 1-0 entering Tuesday’s late game.
    “Individual honors are nice, but all any of us are thinking about right now is the MISL championship series this weekend,” said Gibson, who scored a team-record 11 points in Sunday’s 20-6 victory over Milwaukee.
    Assadpour scored the final goal in Monday night’s 6-2 mini-game win at Milwaukee that helped vault the Comets into the championship series.
    “Now, we can focus on one thing – the championship series,” Assadpour said. “We want to bring a championship home to our fans, and I think we have the team that can get that done.”
    Harris, who scored the first two goals in the 6-2 mini-game win, agreed, adding, “We want to win the championship. We made it to the championship series last year and didn’t achieve our goal. This year, we want to achieve our goal and bring the championship home to Missouri.”
