Sebastien Le Toux, the first Sounders FC player now on loan to the USL Seattle Sounders has been named the USL Team of the Week.
Here’s the announcement from the USL Sounders:
Sebastien Le Toux was named to the USL Team of the Week after scoring a goal in the Sounders 3-1 victory over the Minnesota Thunder on Saturday night, the United Soccer Leagues announced today.
Today’s selection was Le Toux’s second of the season for Team of the Week honors, his first came two weeks ago when he scored a goal and an assist in Vancouver.
The Sounders beat the Thunder behind goals from Hugo Alcaraz-Cuellar and Leighton O’Brien, but it was Le Toux who slammed the door shut in the 78th minute, scoring when he collected a loose ball in front of the net and slotted it home. It was his fourth goal in his last six matches bringing his total on the season to five which is half-way to his total goal output for the 2007 USL-1 regular season when he was named USL-1 MVP.
The Sounders host Juventus Primavera Thursday at 7 p.m. Thursday at Starfire. … (Tickets are available at) www.ticketmaster.com or 1-206-628-0888.
