BOSTON (April 24, 2018)
– Charlotte Hounds midfielder Kevin Cooper was named the Warrior Offensive Player of the Week for Week 1. He led the Hounds in a 25-7 rout of the Boston Cannons in the opening game of the season on Saturday.
Cooper, 27, had a career-high seven goals and three assists for 10 points, becoming the first player in franchise history to record 10 points in a single game for Charlotte. Cooper also led the Hounds with 12 shots on net. He scored twice in the first quarter, once in the second, three times in the third and once in the fourth in just his third game with the Hounds.
Charlotte acquired Cooper from Chesapeake on June 27 last season in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2018 Collegiate Draft. He was a second-round selection by the Bayhawks in the 2013 Collegiate Draft out of Maryland and played 45 games between Chesapeake, Ohio and Atlanta from 2013-17.
