LD Soccer News on Facebook
A weekly list of the top five players or performances of each round in NASL, USL Pro and MLS Reserves in all competitions…


Player – Club (5 Star Selections)

Sam Adekugbe - Vancouver Whitecaps Reserves
Scored the second goal on a clean finish in a 4-0 thumping of rival Sounders Reserves and added what should be two assists (only credited with one), combining twice with fellow Whitecaps U18 Residency player Marco Bustos to set up Tommy Heinemann, including working with Yassin Essa to create the turnover that led to the final goal.

Hans Denissen - San Antonio Scorpions
Scored both goals in the final moments of each half as he led the surging Scorpions to a 2-0 victory over league-leading Carolina, costing the RailHawks the title.

Matt Fondy - Los Angeles Blues
Scored two second half goals in an easy 6-0 win against Antigua, but went on to score the 89th minute winner at Pittsburgh two days later.

Daniel Steres - Wilmington Hammerheads
Scored three goals in a huge week for the Hammerheads, scoring twice both (including a penalty) in a 2-2 draw against league-leading Orlando and tallying the opener in a 2-1 win over second-place Harrisburg.

Luke Vercollone - Richmond Kickers 
Scored the equalizer and go-ahead goals for Richmond in a four-minute span as Richmond went on to a 3-2 win at Dayton.
