In a huge week for Brazos Cavalry F.C. that saw the club move to the top of the Mid South Division standings, nobody had a better week than forward Brandon Guhl.
In the team's midweek 3-0 shutout of the AHFC Royals, Guhl scored his first two goals of the week, including the game-winner. He followed that up with a three goal, two assist performance in Brazos Valley's 8-1 blowout of FC Cleburne for a total of five goals and two assists on the week.
Here's a look at the full PDL National Team of the Week in Week 9.
GK - Carlos Mercado, Des Moines Menace: In the week in which the Menace secured the 2018 Heartland Division title, Mercado was stellar in goal again, shutting out Kaw Valley FC.
D - Mark Da Silva Lindstrom, Cincinnati Dutch Lions: The Cincinnati Dutch Lions picked up a pair of wins last week over Lansing United and the Derby City Rovers, with the former being a shutout thanks to good defensive work from Lindstrom.
D - Callum Montgomery, Victoria Highlanders FC: Montgomery went the full 90 minutes in Highlanders FC's two matches last week, providing rock solid defense and generating several offensive opportunities as well.
D - Louis Bennett, OKC Energy U23: After a tough midweek loss for the Energy U23, the club bounced back for a 5-2 weekend win over Corpus Christi FC, in which Bennett assisted three of the teams goals on the offensive end.
