FRISCO - North Texas SC midfielders Alfusainey Jatta and Thomas Roberts have been included in USL League One's Team of the Week for Week 6 for their performances in the club's 1-0 victory over Greenville Triumph SC last Saturday.
Alfusainey Jatta moved from his typical midfield position into an unfamiliar center back role to fill the void left by FC Dallas' Callum Montgomery who had been a mainstay in Eric Quill's defense over the first three games. Jatta impressed in the new position, making four tackles, nine clearances and winning six of his nine aerial duels en route to North Texas' third clean sheet in row. This is Jatta's second Team of the Week honor after being named to the the league's best XI in Week 1.
Thomas Roberts started his second game in a row for North Texas on Saturday and made his mark by scoring the game's only goal in the 17th minute with a deflected shot from outside the box. Roberts also contributed by winning four fouls and creating two goal-scoring chances to earn his first USL League One Team of the Week inclusion.
