ATL UTD 2 played to a 2-2 draw in its last match against El Paso Locomotive on Saturday. Tristan Trager recorded a brace in his second-consecutive match, scoring in the 11th and 17th minutes before a stoppage-time goal from El Paso drew the sides level.

TRISTAN TRAGER

The newly-crowned USL Championship Player of the Week continues to impress in his early days in Atlanta.

Trager has scored in three consecutive matches, a feat that no ATL UTD 2 player has accomplished this season.

The 22-year-old forward averages a goal every 80.4 minutes, the best rate by any USLC player that has logged at least 200 minutes.

BIRMINGHAM LEGION IN 2022

Birmingham Legion currently sits sixth in the USL Championship’s Western Conference and has won four of its last five matches.

The only blemish in that five-match run came Saturday in the team’s last match against Louisville City, which they lost 2-1 on a late penalty shot scored by Sean Totsch.
Legion FC boasts one of the best defenses in the USLC; however, the offense has fired in just 15 goals this season, the second-lowest tally in the league.
