Derrick Etienne Jr. was named to MLSsoccer.com’s Team of the Week after his two-assist performance against the New England Revolution. The midfielder was originally slated to play as a right midfielder until an injury to Marlon Hairston during warm-ups forced him to play as a right back.
Etienne Jr.’s first assist came in the 27th minute, when he sent in a cross to Miguel Berry after receiving a ball from Pedro Santos. The Haiti international was at it again in the 89th minute, sliding a ball into Erik Hurtado’s pathway, to help set-up the late equalizer.
Etienne Jr. currently leads the Black & Gold in assists this season, with four helpers to his name.
Up next, the Crew heads to New York to take on NYCFC. Kick off is slated for 7 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.
The Crew’s next home game at Lower.com Field is May 21 against Los Angeles Football Club, and tickets are available to see one of the marquee matchups of the season.
