Following back-to-back wins on the road last weekend, Blast forward Adauto Neto has been named MISL Player of the Week. The Blast are 4-1 and will play in Rochester on Saturday night.
Neto, Baltimore's second leading scorer with 13 points, recorded a hat trick Saturday to lead the Blast to a dominant 26-13 road win over the Rochester Lancers. He also recorded an assist in the game and added another assist the following day in the Blast's 18-10 road victory over the Syracuse Silver Knights. Neto, who ranks 12th in the MISL in points, recorded eight of his 13 points over the weekend. He has recorded at least one point in each of the Blast's five games this season.
The 2005-06 MISL MVP and two-time champion with the Blast, Neto is back on the field this season after missing most of the 2010-11 season with knee injuries.
