Pantuza, Utesch earn MASL 2 Player of Month honors for December

Diego Pantuza of the Iowa Demon Hawks and Haakon Utesch of the Iowa Raptors have been named the Offensive and Defensive Players of the Month for December.

Pantuza was a key cog in his team's offensive outburst in December, putting in fourteen goals in just five games as the Demon Hawks went a perfect 5-0, totaling 68 goals in those five wins.

Utesch, after losing his first start of the season, rallied for back-to-back wins over the St. Louis Ambush 2 and allowed just four goals in those two games. For the month he had an impressive  5.33 goals against average in posting a 2-1 record.

Honorees were selected by a consortium of league officials in consultation with select team representatives.
