RailHawks' Kabwe goes 1 for 3, named to USL-1 team of the week

Posted by on Tue, Aug 4, 2009 at 4:26 PM

It’s Tuesday, and again the white-hot Carolina RailHawks are a little underrepresented on the USL-1 team of the week. This afternoon, word came from league HQ that Joseph Kabwe, who's seen a resurgence of form after being largely absent from the lineup, would be so honored. The citation is chiefly for his goal against Austin Saturday, but it's also perhaps a bit of a makeup for leaving him off last week's team after his two assists in the 4-0 rout of Miami. Announcement here.

Not the weekly honors matter all that much, of course. The team would surely much rather have that Wilmington game back, for the RailHawks in their present form would be making a good show of it in the U.S. Open Cup. Including two friendlies, the RailHawks have won seven of their last eight games (five out of six without the exhibitions), and they've played those eight with an aggregate score of 18-4.

Today, the RailHawks released this highlight reel from Saturday's 3-0 romp over Austin, from the USLLive.com feed. You'll see (and Kabwe surely doesn't need to be reminded) that the Zimbabwean midfielder shoulda-coulda had a hat trick, going 1 for 3 on lay-offs from Gregory Richardson.

Wednesday night, the RailHawks visit the Rochester Raging Rhinos at Marina Auto Stadium. The Rhinos have been nipping at the heels of the league's top four all season and this game will be no picnic. (Well, that's what I said in advance of the Miami game.) The RailHawks will have midfield mainstays Amir Lowery and Daniel Paladini available again, after the duo served suspensions during the Austin game. Kickoff is 7 p.m. and you can watch on USLLive.com.
