ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Saint Louis FC had a pair of players selected to this week’s USL Team of the Week, as defender Sam Fink and goalkeeper Alec Kann were honored following Saturday’s win over Wilmington.
This is the first USL Team of the Week honor for either player.
A native of Edwardsville, Fink scored the game-winning goal in STL FC’s 1-0 victory against Wilmington Hammerheads FC on Saturday night.
In the 82nd minute, Mike Roach whipped in a corner kick from the right side and Fink rose highest to head home from six yards. It was his first goal of the season.
At the other end of the pitch, Kann made six saves in goal to post the clean sheet and earn his first victory with Saint Louis.
In the first half, the Chicago Fire loanee made a dramatic triple save from close range to keep Wilmington off the board. Then in the second half, Kann stretched to make a fingertip save on a goal-bound Wilmington free kick.
Saint Louis FC will be back in action Thursday night when it hosts Toronto FC II at World Wide Technology Soccer Park. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 PM.
