CINCINNATI – Omar Cummings and Sean Okoli each tallied a goal last week to garner a spot on the USL Team of the Week.
Cummings (Old Harbour, Jamaica) had the game-winning goal and an assist in FCC’s win at Saint Louis FC. Cummings, making his third start of the year, scored in the eighth minute with a goal that bested Ryan Thompson to give FCC a one-goal lead.
He then assisted on a goal in the 78th minute as his shot to Thompson bounced off the keeper with Eric Stevenson jumping on the rebound to put away his third goal of the season.
Cummings is third on the team with nine points on three goals and three assists. He has played in 14 games and makes his first appearance on the USL Team of the Week.
Okoli is a three-time USL Team of the Week honoree. The striker was named an honorable mention after tucking away his fourth penalty kick in the losing effort against Rochester Rhinos. He has converted on all four penalty tries and leads the team with 18 points.
