T2’s Neco Brett named to the USL Team of the Week (Wk 11)

T2 forward Neco Brett has been named to the USL Team of the Week for Week 11 after tallying a goal and an assist in a 2-1 win against Swope Park Rangers on June 4 at Rocky Mountain High School in Meridian, Idaho. Brett’s USL Team of the Week recognition marks his second of the 2016 campaign (Week 7).

Brett, the Timbers 40th overall selection in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft, scored his fourth goal in the last five matches in the 27th minute after driving his free kick strike through the Swope Park wall and into the upper side netting to build a 1-0 lead for Portland.

In the second half, Brett, who made his MLS debut in a 4-2 win against Vancouver Whitecaps FC on May 22, notched his first assist of the season for T2, releasing forward Victor Arboleda from the midfield for the Colombian’s second-career goal for Portland.

Next up, T2 (5-6-1, 16pts) return to Merlo Field on the campus of the University of Portland to host San Antonio FC on Saturday, June 11; kickoff is set for 7 p.m. (Pacific).
