One of the best weeks in San Antonio FC history has been capped on Tuesday as Cesar Elizondo was named the USL player of the week for his performances against Seattle and Portland.
Elizondo scored twice and provided an assist in a strong week on the road, not just for himself but for the league leaders. The forward was vital in both matches, especially impressive after playing just 25 minutes in the match against Seattle.
“I am very happy and honored,” said Elizondo in a press release. “This award just enlightens the good work that our team has been doing. Personally, it is more motivation to work every day and work even harder for our next match on Saturday.”
Against Seattle Sounders Elizondo put in a vital performance in just 25 minutes, but in Portland he played the full 90 scoring two goals and providing an assist. He provided the assist for Billy Forbes’ first goal before doubling the lead, Elizondo finally wrapped up the scoring in stoppage time making it 4-0 for San Antonio FC.
Unsurprisingly Billy Forbes was also in the team of the week as he was named a starter in the team as a midfielder, his fourth time in the team this year. Equal at the top of the USL golden boot race forbes scored two goals during the week, bringing his tally to six and managed his third assist of the season, second most in the league.
Devin Vega made it three players on the team of the week for San Antonio FC as his two impressive cameos were rewarded. Vega is no doubt having the best week of his life as he scored his first professional goal and now team of the week honors.
