Locomotive FC midfielder Bryam Rebellón earns USL Championship Team of the Week honors

Locomotive FC

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – El Paso Locomotive FC midfielder Bryam Rebellón has earned a spot on the Week 10 USL Championship Team of the Week Starting XI following his late-game heroics last Saturday — securing a win over Real Monarchs SLC with a game-winning goal.

The Colombian won 10 of 17 duels while completing 28 of 42 passes in the midfield to help set the transition into the attacking play. Creating a key chance towards goal, while making five shots on goal, Rebellón’s contribution would shine in the 86th minute.

Settling a poorly made clearance by the Monarchs defensive line, the 28-year-old midfielder cut in towards the middle of the box before bending the shot into the far post for his first goal of the season. Rebellón went down hard in the process and appeared to suffer a head injury. He would walk off the pitch under his own power and is not showing any concussion symptoms.
