The streak of MNUFC players in the MLS Team of the Week continues for the fourth consecutive week. Rookie Hassani Dotson represents the Loons with his first appearance on the MLS Team of the Week, occupying a spot on the bench in Week 20.
Filling in at defensive midfielder for Osvaldo Alonso against Real Salt Lake, Dotson exhibited the versatility that has made him extremely valuable for the Loons this season. He completed 27 passes, including three in the final third and three long balls. He also made a pair of clearances, and disrupted RSL’s attack with an interception, a key tackle and blocked a shot inside the penalty area.
