VICTORY LEAGUE TEAM OF THE WEEK - ROUND 19
Who cracked this week's best 11?
South Hobart made it three from three against Devonport City away at Valley Road and their win sees three feature this week. Matthew Ferguson a very unlucky absentee with a dynamite performance in between the sticks. Devonport's Casey Eaves is also unlucky to miss out on the Team after a great week from the goalkeeper.
Tilford Zebras were comfortable winners over cellar dwellers Launceston City and have two make the team, including Adam McKeown who makes his third straight Team of the Week.
Rangers have two crack the team with the Lions frustrating them to share points in a 1-1 draw at the Lions den. Kingborough keeper Andrew Duncan was their standout but their newest addition Dae Young Kang was outstanding in his first Victory League start but just can't quite edge his way in to the starting 11.
This week’s team is in 3-1-2-1-3 formation and features three members from the Round 18 TOTW.
GK: Andrew Duncan (Kingborough Lions)
Kingborough have Duncan to thank for their point, he has been second choice for some time this season but performed like a pro in the sticks with some crucial stops to hold out the Rangers.
RB: Kieran Mulraney (Devonport City)
Mulraney is selected at right back due to the formation but the Strikers central defender was solid all day and worked hard for the home team. He was good defensively and when pushed forward in the latter stages of the game in an attempt to salvage a result, he caused the South back four some problems.
CB: Alex Holmes (Olympia FC Warriors)
The experienced defender was a wise head at the back against his old club and thwarted chances for Callen Griffin and the like and offered a strong aerial presence. Holmes communicated well with Chris Kumpulainen and also scored with a delicate flick header.
LB: Kurt Engels (Tilford Zebras)
Engels continued his sparkling second half of the season with a standout attacking game at full back, including two goals.
CDM: Mynonge Kamba (Glenorchy Knights)
Kamba has battled hard all season long for Knights and has been one of their most important players. MK as he is known, was key for the Knights and provided some metal in the middle.
RM: Todd Hingston (Northern Rangers)
Hingston was once more instrumental in the middle of the park and provided good delivery from the defence to his front three. Took the honours in a good battle in the middle of the park with Marcello Marchioli.
LM: Caleb Ludlow (South Hobart)
The Bentleigh Greens import again showed his quality in the middle of the park, he got on the scoresheet and pulled the strings to help set up others.
CAM: Nick Morton (South Hobart)
Nick Morton backed up his domination of Kingborough with another great solo game with two goals in South's 3-1 victory over Devonport. Morton runs all day and has become a serious goal threat with 17 goals for the season.
RW: Nick Lanau-Atkinson (Northern Rangers)
Lanau-atkinson bamboozled the Kingborough defence and continued to cause havoc, he put home an early goal and could have had others if not for Duncan in goal.
CF: Adam McKeown (Tilford Zebras)
McKeown is in great touch and he continued a great month, again proving to be City's villain as he slammed home a brace and kept them on the toes all game.
LW: Chris Hunt (South Hobart)
Hunt was involved in all three goals away at Valley Road and continued what has been a great 2013 season.
