[USL PRO] Former Sporting Kansas City midfielder Michael Thomas, whose stoppage-time goal earned OKC Energy FC a 1-0 victory over the New York Red Bulls Reserves on Saturday night, was named Player of the Week.

Thomas is joined on the Team of the Week by teammate Peabo Doue, who was strong defensively and got forward well down the left side throughout Saturday’s contest. Rochester’s Kyle Hoffer and Pittsburgh’s Brian Fekete were also selected after strong outings for their respective sides, while Orange County’s Patrick McLain earned the goalkeeper spot after his seven-save shutout against Arizona United on Saturday night. The Blues’ Allan Russell also earned selection after his goal paved the way for a 2-0 victory at Anteater Stadium.

Last week’s Player of the Week, Kevin Molino of Orlando City, recorded his ninth goal of the season in the 2-0 win against Charleston. The LA Galaxy II’s Chandler Hoffman also struck for his eighth of the season with what proved to be the winner in Los Dos’ 1-0 win over the Seattle Sounders Reserves.

They were joined up front by a trio of MLS loanees: Richmond’s Kyle Porter, who recorded the game-winning goal and an assist in the Kickers’ 3-2 win over Harrisburg; Wilmington’s Manny Aparicio, who had a key role in the Hammerheads’ 2-1 win over Charlotte; and Harrisburg’s Jimmy McLaughlin, whose outstanding solo finish earned the City Islanders a 1-1 draw in Pittsburgh.
