TAMPA, Fla. - USL League Two today announced the League Two Team of the Month for May.
GK - Tyler Hogan (LBR)
Hogan's been on a tear for the best team in the Chesapeake Division, with three clean sheets and only one goal conceded. His leaping stop was a candidate for the last Goal of the Week competition, and the FIU Panther is making his mark in the league.
D - Connor Langan (LIR)
Langan's been a strong presence for the Rough Riders, who are once again looking like a contender in League Two. The right back has been a stalwart for Long Island, and wide players haven't gotten much joy up his side.
D - Ben Weimann (NCF)
Weimann's off to another great start in League Two, despite needing to sweat out more matches than normal for the Fusion early. He was an elite defender last season, and has picked right back up where he left off, with a goal to his name for good measure.
D - Jan Riecke (OCN)
The Nor'Easters once again have a strong start defensively, and Riecke has a lot to do with that. The Harvard Crimson defender is extremely secure along the back line, competing hard and winning balls to snuff out any hopeful attacks.
D - Lesia Thetsane (BAL)
The Lesotho international is once again an integral piece of both Ballard's defense and attack. He played 250 minutes in 3 matches during the month, and limited any opposition up his side.
M - JP Jordan (TEX)
Texas United was undefeated in the regular season last year, but this season, they've taken the draws out of their record to start. and Jordan is a major piece of that added security. He's kept the play ticking and kept their back line out of danger for a very strong Texas United side.
M - Eliot Goldthorp (DMN)
Nicknamed GOALthorp by his teammates and coaches, Eliot Goldthorp is on another tear to start this League Two season. He's scored four goals already, and is usually the finisher in the most backbreaking of moments for the Menace. When defenses feel they have everything buttoned up against Des Moines, that usually means that Goldthorp is somewhere, storming into the box to jump on a pass. It's working out for them.
M - Augustine Boadi (WMP) - Western Mass Pioneers haven't gotten off to the blinding start they may have hoped for, with two early draws, but Boadi has been sensational in every match. Two goals to his name and a maestro in midfield for the Pioneers.
F - Omar Yehya (RED) - Yehya was named to our Top Performers list for his exceptional start, and his presence on the Team of the Month comes as no surprise to anyone that's watched Redlands FC early this season. He's a dominant winger that's burning defenses left and right, with three goals in four matches, and a central figure in the Redlands attack.
F - Logan Farrington (VCF) - Farrington's was expected to step up for the defending champion Fusion, and has done so in a massive way. Five goals in four matches from the Oregon State Beaver have the Fusion of to a strong start. They'll need this level of performance from him throughout the season if they want to head back to the Playoff Final.
F - Gevork Diarbian (VER) - Diarbian's two matches for Vermont Green in May were fantastic, and he got a goal for his trouble up the left wing. He'll need to be in top form if the Green want another playoff berth in July.
