Brett Levis was named to the USL Team of the Week, the league announced today. The left back from Saskatoon came up huge in the clutch on Saturday for Whitecaps FC 2, scoring the game-winning goal in added time of the 2-1 victory over Real Monarchs SLC.
Just moments after the home side equalized in the dying minutes, Levis completed the ‘Caps response off a clinical display that involved four different Canadian players getting a touch in 22 seconds.
