North Texas SC Trio Named to USL League One Team of the Week

FRISCO, Texas - Three North Texas SC players were named to USL League One's Team of the Week for their performances over the club's final two matches of the season.

Goalkeeper Carlos Avilez recorded six saves across the two outings, including a five-save shutout against Forward Madison FC on Wednesday night that helped the side earn a 1-0 win to remain in contention for the League One Final until the final day of the regular season. 

Defender Derek Waldeck put in two strong defensive performances as the team defeated Forward Madison FC and South Georgia Tormenta FC, winning 10 of 11 duels and 4 of 5 tackles while recording 15 recoveries across the two contests.

Typically a defender, Eddie Munjoma stepped into midfield for the two matches and recorded a 90th-minute winner to go with an earlier assist as North Texas rallied to a 2-1 victory against South Georgia Tormenta FC last Saturday night.

It's each player's second Team of the Week appearance this season.
