LOAN UPDATE: Brian Ownby named to USL Pro Team of the Week

By Ben Crook

Dynamo man Brian Ownby is doing just about everything you could ask of him on his loan spell with the Richmond Kickers. The Viriginia native added another assist and was named to the USL Pro Team of the Week following his performance in Richmond's 1-1 draw against the Vancouver Whitecaps Reserves last Saturday.

After going down 1-0 in the first half, Ownby raced down the left flank and put in a low cross for former Dynamo striker Joseph Ngwenya to finish off in the 54th minute (2:20 in the video below). Ownby nearly got the winner for Richmond in stoppage time, chesting down a pass in the penalty area only to have his half-volley attempt rocket off the crossbar (5:12 in video).

Ownby now has three goals and five assists in nine appearances for the Kickers, who remain undefeated (7-0-5) and in third place in the USL Pro standings. Richmond's next match is this Saturday against league leaders Orlando City (6:30 p.m. CT) at the Florida Citrus Bowl.
