Acosta, Evans Earn USL League One Week 6 Honors

George Acosta vs. Tucson 5.16.21

USL League One announced on Monday the Team of the Week Presented by Cleer Audio for Week 6 of the 2021 regular season, with Fort Lauderdale CF midfielder George Acosta named Player of the Week after recording a goal and two assists in his team’s Sunday night win against FC Tucson.

The 21-year-old U.S. youth international played in Abel Caputo with a slick through ball as Fort Lauderdale CF opened the scoring just 90 seconds into the match, polishing off a beautiful team move. Acosta then got on the scoresheet himself just after halftime, cleverly picking his spot with a low drive from the edge of the penalty area. He rounded off a fantastic performance by setting up Venton Evans for the team’s fifth goal.

M - George Acosta: Acosta was nothing short of brilliant in Fort Lauderdale’s 5-1 win over FC Tucson. In addition to his goal and two assists, he created eight chances and completed 94 percent of his passing attempts.

F - Venton Evans: Evans rounded off a dominant Fort Lauderdale performance with two well-placed finishes, putting the result beyond doubt just after Tucson had pulled a goal back late in the second half.
