Ghanaian winger Solomon Asante continues to take the United Soccer League by storm after being named Player for the Month of June.
Asante scored seven goals and tallied four assists while helping the club go on a five-game winning streak.
The former TP Mezembe attacker also broke the USL Western Conference record for most consecutive matches with a goal scored by tallying a goal in his 7th consecutive match in the club’s 4-2 win over Portland Timbers 2 on June 29th.
In addition to his goal-scoring streak, Asante has notched a brace in back-to-back matches.
““I’m very grateful and happy to be recognized by the league,” Asante said. “This is important to me and to the club and will help push me and my teammates to work harder today and the rest of the season. Now we’ll forget about what happened last month and we’re focusing on this month. Especially this Saturday.”
Asante and his teammates will return to league play this Saturday, July 13th, on the road against Rio Grande Valley FC.
