New, 28 comments

We had some great performances from this past week with tons of goals & assists, whether they were intentional or not.

The Yanks Abroad were not messing around this past week. Kristen Hamilton led the way with a hat trick in Australia, and Terrence Boyd scored in his second straight game with one of the best goals of the season. Duane Holmes wasn’t on the score sheet but was perfect in tackling and take-ons en route to a great performance. Plus, we have several assists to check out, although they all have a common theme of being accidental.

Australia

Kristen Hamilton

Hamilton, on loan from the North Carolina Courage right now, bagged herself a hat trick for Western Sydney Wanderers as they beat Brisbane by a final of 3-1.


Italy

Andrija Novakovich

The 23-year-old had two assists and a goal of his own as Frosinone shut out Empoli 4-0. He’ll take the assists, but both came off botched shot attempts. However, his header just after halftime was very nice. He also created four chances, the most in the match. MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

Terrence Boyd

Boyd made it two straight goals off the bench with a moment that will make you feel like you did when you saw Baby Yoda for the first time. He’s up to nine goals & five assists on the season. His Hallescher FC side is in 2nd place at the moment, a position that would see them promoted to the 2nd tier. HIGHLIGHT

John Brooks
