Ben Sweat makes MLS Team of the Week!

The left wingback earns TotW honors for his performance against Montreal

MLS: New York City FC at Montreal Impact Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

New York City FC’s 2-0 win over the Montreal Impact this weekend was huge, as were several of the players’ individual performance.

One in particular has stood out to those who select Major League’s Soccer weekly best XI, and this left wingback Ben Sweat.

I must admit, I’m surprised Ismael Tajouri-Shradi didn’t make this list after his gem of a game. But, Sweat definitely played his best game of the season against Montreal and is probably deserving of some type of honor for his valiant performance in place of the injured Ronald Matarrita.

We here at Hudson River Blue congratulate Ben on making the latest edition of MLS’s Team of the Week and hope it translates to more performances like the one we saw on Saturday.
