[WEEKLY HONORS] Maltan forward Etienne Barbara (Carolina) and veteran keeper Daryl Sattler (FC Tampa Bay) won NASL weekly top honors, while Barracuda FC forward Stefan Smith was named the USL PRO Player of the Week after he scored twice to lift the Antiguan club to its first victory.

Barbara, the NASL's Offensive Player of the Week, scored his league-leading third goal of the season in last Wednesday’s 2-0 win over FC Edmonton.

Sattler, the NASL's Defensive Player of the Week, posted his second shutout in three games in a scoreless tie at Montreal last Saturday. The 30-year-old keeper leads the NASL with 17 saves.
