MOST COMMENTED

[WEEKLY HONORS] The Harrisburg City Islanders’ Yann Ekra, who scored a hat trick in his first start of the season, was named the USL PRO Player of the Week. Tampa Bay Rowdies forward Daniel Antoniuk and San Antonio Scorpions defender Jonathan Greenfield were picked as the NASL Players of the Week.
 
Ekra quickly notched a pair of goals two minutes apart to give the City Islanders a healthy lead inside the first 20 minutes against the Dayton Dutch Lions on Saturday night, and then completed his hat trick in the 56th minute.

The Ivory Coast youngster’s big night vaulted him into a tie for the USL PRO lead in goals with Antigua’s Stefan Smith, with six players tied for third behind them.

Antoniuk, making his second start of the season, led the Rowdies with two goals in Tampa Bay’s 3-2 victory at Atlanta on Saturday night.

Greenfield picked up a goal and an assist in San Antonio’s 2-0 shutout win over FC Edmonton on Saturday.
