Comets' Gibson honored as MISL offensive player of the week

Missouri Comets forward Leo Gibson was selected as the Major Indoor Soccer League’s Offensive Player of the month for November. Gibson recorded four goals and four assists in four games and leads the MISL with 15 points. He took just 12 shots in the four games, having scored a goal on one of every three attempts.

"Leo has been everything we expected and more since he became a Comet," said head coach Kim Roentved. "We are so happy with the incredible and immediate contributions he’s made so far this season."
