FRISCO - North Texas SC defender Imanol Almaguer and midfielder Arturo Rodriguez were named to USL League One Team of the Week for their performances in the club's week 20 matchup against FC Tucson on Saturday, August 10th.
Rodriguez has been ever-present for North Texas SC this year, and this selection marks his sixth selection to team of the week. Rodriguez has been a key part of a lethal NTSC offense and his playmaking ability shone through against Tucson, creating a team-high four chances. He also scored the all-important game-tying goal, breaking a three-match scoring drought for NTSC.
Almaguer was just signed to a three-year contract for NTSC and responded with an excellent performance that earned him his second team of the week selection. Almaguer did a great job of providing stability in defense, reflected by his 95% passing accuracy while also winning six of his 10 duels. When Almaguer got forward he did so to great effect, and both of his successful crosses resulted in a chance created.
