San Antonio FC goalkeeper Diego Restrepo was named to the USL Team of the Week, the league announced today. Restrepo recorded five saves in his third clean sheet of the season during the 0-0 draw at RGV FC last Saturday.
Restrepo’s five saves are fell just one short of his all-time high with the club, which he matched earlier this season in Fresno on April 21. Since the start of the 2017 campaign, Restrepo leads the club with 15 clean sheets. The San Antonio number one has been named the SWBC Man of the Match in three of his last four matches, and he has conceded more than one goal in a match just six times over the course of his Alamo City career.
Restrepo has now earned USL Team of the Week honors twice in 2018. Last season, San Antonio had eight different players included in the Team of the Week 13 different times over the course of their 32 matches, with Restrepo also earning the honors twice.
