Sep 13, 2017

MIAMI (September 13, 2017) – The Miami FC extended its unbeaten-streak to six matches last week , earning two spots on the Fall Week 7 Team of the Week. Jaime Chávez and Blake Smith made the cut for a second week in a row.

Chávez has been in unbelievable form and it has launched Miami to the top of the Fall Season Standings. He pushed his goal scoring streak to five-straight matches last week against the Cosmos with his first-ever hat trick. Chávez has now been directly responsible for nine of the last 11 Miami FC goals.

Smith, usually a midfielder, continues to flourish at the left back position for the Miami FC. For the second-straight week, he sent in a great cross that was finished off by Chávez. Smith also contributed five duels and five clearances to go along with his fourth assist of the season.

The Miami FC is now five points clear of North Carolina FC in the Fall Season Standings and 17 points clear of San Francisco in the Combined Standings.
