The United Soccer League’s Pro division named its Team of the Week for week 13 and Oklahoma City landed a trio of players on the team.

Forward Adda Djeziri and midfielder Michael Thomas were named to the team with defender Mark Howard being named as an honorable mention.

Djeziri scored his second goal of the season in the first half of Energy FC’s 2-0 win over Sacramento on Saturday night.  Thomas, OKC’s captain, also scored his second goal of the season, coming in the 81st minute on a cross from Steven Perry.

Dayton’s Aaron Schoenfeld was named Player of the Week.

Thomas previously earned a spot on the league’s Team of the Week in week 11, when he was named Player of the Week. Djeziri was part of the team in week 4, this is Howard’s first appearance on the team.

Energy FC (4-7-2) returns to action at home on Sunday when they host the Rochester Rhinos (5-4-5) at 7 p.m. at Pribil Stadium on the campus of Bishop McGuinness High School in Oklahoma City.
