TACOMA, WA—The Western Indoor Soccer League (WISL) today announces that Andrew Escalante (Offense, Snohomish Skyhawks) and Aaron Anderson (Defense, Tacoma Stars Reserves) have been voted Players of the Week by league coaches and general managers for matches played on November 11, 2017.
Andrew Escalante (Offense) – Snohomish Skyhawks
Escalante scored three goals and assisted on a fourth as the Skyhawks were unstoppable on Saturday night in Olympia, winning 15-6. The WISL veteran is off to a fast start and his Head Coach Tao Shen likes what he is seeing. “Andrew played well at both ends of the field and made some great blocks on defense too,” Shen says. “He was unselfish in front of goal, passing over open shots to set up his teammates. Andrew also converted a great header goal in the second half.”
Aaron Anderson (Defense) – Tacoma Stars Reserves
Praise for Aaron Anderson’s performance in goal last Saturday for the Tacoma Stars Reserves came from both sides of the pitch. The veteran goalkeeper shut out the Olympic Force in the second and third quarters, allowing the Reserves offense to do just enough for a 5-3 win. “Fact is, we win that match if Aaron’s not in goal,” says opposing GM Micah McMonagle of the Force. Anderson’s own Head Coach agrees. “Aaron is our rock back there,” says Adam Becker.
