RailHawks' Norkus and Bundu named to USL-1 team of the week; get ready for visit from insane Canadians

Posted by on Tue, Jul 14, 2009 at 3:02 PM

Just in from the USL home office: Caleb Norkus and Sallieu Bundu have spots on Week 14's team of the week for their performances in the RailHawks' 1-0 victory over the Charleston Battery on Saturday. 

Among the contributions of Norkus, who started the game at right back: He drew a crucial foul from the Battery's Randi Patterson, who kicked him in the head. Amazingly, Patterson was sent off, and minutes later, the RailHawks exploited the man-deficit with a goal from Bundu, off an assist from Josh Gardner.

The league's player of the week was Ricardo Sanchez of the cellar-dwelling Minnesota Thunder, who annihilated the Montreal Impact 3-0. That game also produced the weekend's most notorious low-light.

This continues an unfortunate trend for Canadian football teams (maybe it's the universal health care!). Last month, the Vancouver Whitecaps' Wesley Charles and Charles Gbeke also got into an on-field fracas, this time after the two of them muffed a scoring opportunity. Here's the video (scroll ahead to 7:35).

Guess who the RailHawks play this Friday night, at home and on national television (Fox Soccer Channel, that is)? The boys from Vancouver. Kickoff is 8 p.m.
