TAMPA, Fl. – Penn FC team captain Ken Tribbett was named to the USL’s Week 13 Team of the Week Tuesday afternoon.
Tribbett scored a brace during a two minute span that was critical in earning a 3-2 victory against Toronto FC II on June 9. The skipper’s first goal equalized the score after Rush Soccer’s First Team trailed early to the MLS affiliate. Tribbett’s second goal gave the Blue and White the lead and catapulted him to the top of the team’s scoring leaders.
The center back’s tenacious play on Penn FC’s back line earned 14 duel wins against Toronto’s attacking players. Tribbett intercepted five passes as well to stall Toronto’s possession.
His performance on the field earned Man of the Match honors from both the USL and the fan vote on Twitter.
Tribbett previously earned TOTW honors from the league in week 6 as well as earned a spot on the TOTW bench for his performance in week 3.
Penn FC returns to FNB Field tonight to cap off its homestand against the Richmond Kickers. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tickets are available at pennfc.com/tickets.
