Fatawu Safiu named to USL's Team of the Week

PORTLAND, Ore. --- T2 forward Fatawu Safiu has been named to the USL Team of the Week for Week 16 after scoring a goal in T2's 3-1 win over Arizona United on Thursday.

Fatawu carried the ball on an 80-yard run from the top of T2's defensive 18-yard box to the top of Arizona's, before playing a give-and-go with Andy Thoma, getting the ball back, and finishing past Arizona goalkeeper Carl Woszczynski.
