[WEEKLY HONORS] Carolina captain Brad Rusin, who helped hold the Montreal Impact to three shots on goal in the RailHawks' 2-0 win that extended their winning streak to 10 games, was named the NASL Defensive Player of the Week for the third time this season. FC Tampa Bay's Pascal Millien was named the NASL Offensive Player of the Week, while Orlando City goalie Miguel Gallardo won USL PRO's weekly honors.

Millien scored his second goal of the year and assisted on two other Tampa Bay goals in a 4-2 victory over Ft. Lauderdale on Monday night at Al Lang Stadium.

Gallardo recorded a pair of shutouts that included an eight-save performance in the Lions’ 1-0 victory over the Rochester Rhinos in a battle of divisional leaders on Sunday night.
