TAMPA, Fla. - USL League One announced on Monday the Team of the Week Presented by Cleer Audio for Week 13 of the 2021 regular season, with Richmond Kickers forward Emiliano Terzaghi named Player of the Week after recording two goals and an assist in his side’s 3-2 comeback win against North Texas SC on Saturday.
The Argentine attacker leveled the game twice with goals in both the first and second halves. The former was a fantastic, inventive heel flick, and the latter a clinical take from the penalty spot. Terzaghi then set up teammate Jonathan Bolanos for the game-winning goal, helping the Kickers pick up a valuable three points.
Greenville Triumph SC’s dominant 3-0 win against the New England Revolution II sees the team lead all clubs with three players represented in this week’s team.
