Tampa, Florida – The USL League 2 today announced the League Two Team of the Month for May.
GK – Tyler Hogan (LBR)
Hogan is among the best teams in the Chesapeake Division, keeping three clean sheets and conceding just one goal. His leaping stop has made it into the final goal candidate of the week and the FIU Panthers have made their name in the league.
D – Connor Langan (LIR)
Langan is a strong presence for the Rough Riders and once again looks like a League Two contender. The right-back is a staple for Long Island, and wide players aren’t too happy with his squad.
D – Ben Wayman (NCF)
Wyman is off to another great start in League Two, despite having to sweat more games than usual in the early stages of the Fusion. He was an elite defender last season, but picked up right where he left off and scored a respectable goal.
D – Jan Rieke (OCN)
Nor’easters are off to a strong start defensively again, thanks in large part to Rieke. The Harvard Crimson defenders are very safe along the final line, competing hard, stealing the ball and countering any hopeful attacks.
D – Lesia Tetsane (BAL)
The Lesotho international has once again become an integral part of Ballard’s defense and attack. He played 250 minutes in three games that month, limiting opponents’ offense within the team.
M – JP Jordan (TEX)
Texas United were undefeated in the regular season last year, but this season opened without a draw. And Jordans are a big part of that added safety. He kept the play moving and kept the very strong Texas United back line out of danger.
M – Elliott Goldthorpe (DMN)
Elliott Goldthorpe, nicknamed Goalthorpe by his teammates and coaches, is in tears again as he prepares to start his League Two season. He has already scored four goals and is usually the finisher in the most difficult moments of threats. When the defense feels all set against Des Moines, it usually means Goldthorpe is somewhere, swooping inside the box to jump on the pass. It’s working fine for them.
M – Augustine Boadie (WMP) – The Western Massachusetts Pioneers didn’t get off to the dizzying start they’d hoped for with two early draws, but Boady was sensational every game. He scored two goals and became the Pioneers midfield maestro.
F – Omar Yehya (RED) – Yehya was named to the Top Performers list for his exceptional start, but his presence in the Team of the Month should come as no surprise to anyone who watched Redlands FC earlier this season. He’s a dominant winger who rocks left and right defenses, scoring three goals in four games and a key figure in Redlands’ offense.
F – Logan Farrington (VCF) – The Farringtons were expected to step up to replace defending champions Fusion, and they did it in a big way. The Oregon State Beaver got off to a strong start as he scored five goals in his four games. They’re going to need this level of performance from him all season if they want to return to the playoff finals.
F – Gevork Dialbian (VER) – Diarubian’s two games at the Vermont Green in May were excellent, scoring from trouble on the left flank. He needs to be in top shape if the Green team wants to make the playoffs again in July.
