Reno 1868 FC's Dane Kelly Named USL Payer of the Week

Posted: Updated:

Reno 1868 FC forward Dane Kelly has been voted the USL Player of the Week for Week 9 of the 2017 season. Kelly claimed his second weekly honor in three weeks as he became the first player in USL history to notch hat tricks in back-to-back games, with the Jamaican scoring three times in Reno’s first home win in club history, a 6-0 victory against Seattle Sounders FC 2 on Saturday night.
 
Kelly received 64% of the poll conducted by a national panel of independent media representing every USL market. Real Monarchs SLC’s Daniel Haber finished second with 24% of the vote.
