May 17, 2017

MIAMI (May 17, 2017) – The NASL released its Spring Week Eight Team of the Week this morning, with the Miami FC earning three spots. Vincenzo Rennella, Dylan Mares and Robert Baggio Kcira all made the cut after the Orange and Blue took down Indy Eleven 3-2.

Kcira's breakout season continued last week with another all-around performance. 

The youngster netted his second goal of the season with a great strike from distance that proved to be the match-winner as the Miami FC walked away with a 3-2 victory. Kcira would go on to complete 40 of his 46 passes, while also creating two scoring opportunities and winning four duels on defense.

Rennella was fantastic against Indy Eleven, scoring a goal and tallying an assist in the 3-2 victory. He put three of his five shots on goal, including his sublime one-timer just before halftime to give the Miami FC the lead. Rennella also excelled as a creator, completing 12 of his 17 passes and creating two scoring opportunities, including the assist on the Dylan Mares go-ahead goal in the 61st minute. 

Mares put in 90 minutes of high-quality work against Indy Eleven, his former team. His passing was flawless as he completed 30 of 33 passes and created three scoring chances. When pushing forward, Mares put three of his four shots on target, including a rocket in the 61st minute that put the Miami FC back in the lead.

The Miami FC returns to the pitch on Wednesday taking on South Florida Surf in a second round U.S. Open Cup matchup. The squad then hits the road for a grudge match with Indy Eleven on Saturday, May 20 at 7:30 p.m. The Orange and Blue returns home on May 27 to take on Puerto Rico FC for Puerto Rican Heritage Night.
