[WEEKLY HONORS] Richmond Kickers forward Chris Agorsor was named the USL PRO Player of the Week after he scored a pair
of stoppage-time goals to give the Kickers a 3-1 victory over the Wilmington Hammerheads.
Agorsor, who entered the game in the 53rd minute, struck just after the game had entered stoppage time from close range and then put the game away two minutes later.
FC Edmonton striker Shaun Saiko was named the NASL Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season, while Tampa Bay Rowdies defender Frankie Sanfilippo won Defensive Player of the Week honors.
Saiko scored the second goal in the 2-2 tie with the San Antonio Scorpions on Sunday and looked like he may have scored the first one as well but teammate Yashir Pinto got just enough of his head on the ball to claim the goal and earn Saiko the assist.
Sanfilippo helped Tampa Bay to its second shutout of the year last Friday night in a 0-0 tie against red-hot Minnesota.
