Matthew Bentley (RIC) - #RICvTUC, April 2: Richmond continued its dominance in the eventual 4-0 win over Tucson as the Week 1 USL League One Player of the Week, Nil Vinyals assisted on a Matt Bentley goal in the 81' to seal the match.

Jimmie Villalobos (CHA) - #CHAvMAD, April 2: Chattanooga found its first goal of the season via a stunning first-time strike from Jimmie Villalobos from outside the penalty area. The lofted shot dipped just under the bar and above the outstretched hands of the Madison goalkeeper to give the Red Wolves the advantage in the 40'.
Nazeem Bartman (MAD) - #CHAvMAD, April 2: Pressing until the final whistle, Madison found its improbable breakthrough in the fifth minute of stoppage time when new signing Nazeem Bartman hammered home a loose ball in the box, securing a point for both sides in the final seconds of the match.
