USL News Release

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

TAMPA – United Soccer Leagues announced today the Premier Development League Team of the Week for the eighth week of PDL action honoring Des Moines forward Armin Mujdzic for his two goal, one assist performance in two matches against defending PDL Champions Thunder Bay Chill last weekend. 

Mujdzic began the weekend by setting up teammate Samuel Asante in the 73rd minute of the side’s 1-1 draw with Thunder Bay on Friday night. The next day, Mujdzic was the hero, scoring the winner and insurance goal in Des Moines’ 3-1 defeat of the Chill. 

Out west, Los Angeles Head Coach Brent Whitfield suited up for his team and bagged a hat-trick for the Legends in the team’s 7-1 rout of Fresno. The hat trick is his second of June and the second in as many games - he scored his first in a 6-1 rout at Lancaster on June 5.

"Brent would rather let the players play but he plays if we are short a player," said Legends General Manager Carlos Earragan. "He has helped the team on and off the field so far this season."

In Springfield, goalkeeper Cesar Cereijo backstopped the Demize to their first win in nearly two years, making eight saves in his side’s 2-0 defeat of Kansas City on Thursday, June 11. Two days later, Cereijo made three saves and earned another shutout in Springfield’s 1-0 victory over Rochester.

In the northwest, Seattle’s Tyler Klein replaced Wolves’ injured captain Daniel Scott on the backline and was a dominant presence in the club’s 1-0 victory at Abbotsford on Friday, June 12.

"The match was won by the performance of our backline against a tough Abbotsford team," said Wolves General Manager Andrew Opatkiewicz. "Tyler was a standout in this effort."
