Sean Melvin named to USL Team of the Week after five-save clean sheet

Sean Melvin was honoured with a selection to the USL Team of the Week after Sunday's stellar performance against Timbers 2, the league announced on Tuesday.

The Victoria, BC native produced a five-save clean sheet against the Cascadia rivals, snuffing out threats from an experienced Portland side that included eight players from their first-team roster.

With Melvin shutting out T2, the young 'Caps won 1-0 on a late goal from Thomas Sanner, as WFC2 won their second consecutive derby match.

Next up is a date with USL-leading San Antonio FC in the UBC home opener on Saturday. Kickoff at Thunderbird Stadium is at 3 p.m. Click here to redeem your vouchers or purchase tickets.

Also on the horizon is Bark at the 'Bird on April 29, when fans can bring their dogs to the match at Thunderbird Stadium. E-mail wfc2@whitecapsfc.com to purchase a $5 dog ticket, with all proceeds going to Paws for Hope.
