EL PASO, Texas – El Paso Locomotive FC midfielder Liam Rose earned a spot on the USL Championship Team of the Week for the first time in his Locomotive career after his heroics last Saturday clinched a comeback 2-1 win over Birmingham Legion FC.

His game-winning goal, a powerful shot from outside the box that flew past the Legion goalkeeper, was his first for Locomotive and helped Locomotive set a new club record for consecutive games won (6), as well as pushing the club’s unbeaten run to eight matches (7W, 1D).

Rose also contributed to the team’s strong defensive display, recording three interceptions and going 2-for-2 in tackles.
