STATESBORO, Ga. – South Georgia Tormenta FC midfielder Mukwelle Akale was named to USL League One’s Team of the Week for Week 18 of the 2023 regular season.
Akale scored a brace in 35 minutes in Tormenta FC’s 4-2 win last Saturday against the Chattanooga Red Wolves SC.
Akale initiated the play which lead to his first goal of the night. Akale wasted no time in striking the ball into the bottom corner. The shot left the goalkeeper with no chance, finding the back of the net and extending the home team’s lead.
Akale would earn a penalty kick in added time, which he would convert to earn his fourth goal of the season, and his first brace with South Georgia.
Following tonight’s win against the Red Wolves, Tormenta FC shifts its attention to the final regular season game of the Peach States Derby against Greenville Triumph SC next Saturday, July 22, at 7:30 p.m. ET from Optim Sports Medicine Field at Tormenta Stadium. Saturday’s match will see either Triumph SC or Tormenta FC lift the inaugural Peach States Derby trophy.
