The United Soccer League Pro division on Tuesday named Oklahoma City Energy FC forward Kyle Greig its Player of the Week for week 19.

This is the second time Greig has earned the award, the first coming in week 3.

Greig, a 24-year-old from Olathe, Kansas, scored three goals in two matches for Energy FC and also had one assist. Greig helped Energy FC to a 3-3 draw with Harrisburg and a 3-0 win against Dayton, both road games, this past week.

Greig now leads the team with seven goals this season.

Max Gunderson and Paul Wyatt each took honorable mention for the Team of the Week. Gunderson has started the last three matches for Energy FC after seeing limited minutes for most of the season. Wyatt scored a goal against Dayton on Greig’s assist.

Energy FC is back home for a Saturday match with Orange County (Calif.) at 7 p.m. at Pribil Stadium on the campus of Bishop McGuinness High School. Energy FC is 1-1-0 against Orange County this season, scoring a 2-0 victory in Oklahoma City’s first ever match as a club in Orange County. The Blues defeated Energy FC 1-0 in May in Oklahoma City.
