Red Wolves Garcia, Villalobos Named To USL League One Team Of The Week

Monday, May 10, 2021
USL League One announced on Monday the Team of the Week Presented by Cleer Audio for Week 5 of the 2021 regular season.  Chattanooga Red Wolves SC José Carrera García and Jimmie Villalobos were named to the team after their 1-0 season opening win. 

GK - Akira Fitzgerald, Richmond Kickers: Fitzgerald made two saves to keep a clean sheet in Richmond’s 2-0 win against Tormenta FC, including a scrambling effort to keep the ball from trickling over the goal-line with the score still level in the second half.
His distribution was also strong, as he completed six accurate long balls and 81 percent of his passes overall.

D - Dámia Viader, Union Omaha: In addition to his goal and assist, Viader completed two successful dribbles, won five duels, and played two key passes as Omaha continued its perfect start to the early season.

D - Ivan Magalhães, Richmond Kickers: The Brazilian center back was brilliant for the Kickers on Saturday night in their victory against Tormenta FC, making 10 interceptions, five clearances and winning four duels.

D - Abdul Illal Osumanu, Union Omaha: Osumanu was a key figure in Omaha’s clean sheet against Fort Lauderdale, making seven clearances and six recoveries. He also was the game’s most accurate passer, completing all but one of his 33 passes on the night.

M - José Carrera García, Chattanooga Red Wolves SC: It was an all-action display from the Chattanooga midfielder in his debut for the club. Carrera Garcia completed 86 percent of his passes (the best of any player to play 45 minutes or more), won the most duels of any player with five, completed two dribbles and created one chance on the night.

M - Alex Morrell, Greenville Triumph SC: Morrell was one of League One’s best playmakers in 2020, and he reprised that role in his first start of 2021, leading all players in Greenville’s win over North Carolina with five chances created.

M - JP Scearce, Union Omaha: Scearce’s creativity was vital to unlocking Fort Lauderdale’s defense. The midfielder created the most chances in the match with four, assisted Viader’s second-half strike, and won five duels.

M - Deri Corfe, FC Tucson: A good bit of instinctive play helped Corfe pounce on a Madison mistake to score his first goal for Tucson. The Chester, England native also passed at a 90 percent success rate.

F - Emiliano Terzaghi, Richmond Kickers: The reigning League One MVP and Golden Boot winner looked every bit like his old self on Saturday, scoring twice in the final 10 minutes of normal time to lift Richmond to a meaningful win.

F - Lachlan McLean, Greenville Triumph SC: McLean’s high-quality headed goal was the difference between Greenville and North Carolina FC on Saturday night. The Australian also won eight duels and played one key pass.

F - Jimmie Villalobos, Chattanooga Red Wolves SC: Villalobos’ 32nd-minute strike proved to be the match-winner for Chattanooga, helping the Red Wolves become the first team in nearly two years to beat North Texas SC away from home.
