After yet another spectacular match setting up his teammates, Reno 1868 FC midfielder Antoine Hoppenot was named to the USL’s Team of the Week Tuesday.

Hoppenot earned his second USL Team of the Week honor of 2018 after recording his sixth assist of the season (team high) in Saturday’s 2-0 win over San Antonio FC.

The win helped Reno remain undefeated for the 12th straight match, extending a club record. Reno is now seventh in the USL’s Western Conference (playoff position). 

Hoppenot and the rest of Reno 1868 FC returns to Greater Nevada Field on Saturday for a major Western Conference battle against Portland Timbers 2.

Kickoff for that match is slated for 7:15 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at Reno1868FC.com/tickets or at the Greater Nevada Field box office.
