Reyes, Trager named to USL Championship Team of the Week


Coming off a stellar performance away from home for Atlanta United 2, goalkeeper Vicente Reyes and midfielder Tristan Trager were both named to the USL Championship Team of the Week in Week 31.

ATL UTD 2 fought back hard from a goal down and rallied to defeat LA Galaxy II 3-1, scoring all three goals after the 75th minute. Trager put away the first two, recording his second brace and third multi-goal game of the season.

The MLS SuperDraft pick also created two chances and upped his goalscoring tally to eight goals on the year after joining the team in June. This is the second Team of the Week honor for the 23-year-old, who was named USL Player of the Week for Week 17 back in July.

As for Reyes, this was the 18-year-old’s first inclusion on the Team of the Week this season. The Chilean youth international recorded 10 saves, the third time he’s done so this year, and constantly kept ATL UTD 2 in the game at crucial moments.

Saturday was Reyes’ first game back with the squad after traveling to Spain with the Chile U-20s to play in the Costa Cálida Supercup late last month, where he turned heads with some big performances.

ATL UTD 2 will conclude its 2022 season with one final away game at Phoenix Rising on Saturday, October 15. Kickoff at Wild Horse Pass Stadium is set for 10:30 pm ET live on ESPN+.
