MEMPHIS, Tennessee - Memphis 901 FC Forward Elliot Collier earned USL Championship Team of the Week honors Tuesday following a standout performance during Memphis' 1-1 draw over the weekend.

The New Zealand native scored his first goal of the season and the first goal in 901 FC history on Saturday in the club's 1-1 draw with Loudoun United FC in front of 7,250 fans at AutoZone Park.

The goal helped Memphis rally back from a 1-0 halftime deficit to earn the first point in club history.

"Being down a goal, we had to push even harder than we were in the first half," Collier said Saturday. "We committed a lot more to our pressing tactics and came out with a goal.

"They weren't able to stop us in the end. Unfortunately, we weren't able to get another one. A point is a start and we'll use that moving forward."

Collier and 901 FC will be back in action this weekend with their first road match Sunday, March 24 against Bethlehem Steel FC (1-1-0, 3 pts).

Memphis will return home Wednesday, April 10, to face Atlanta United 2 at 7:00 p.m. in a nationally televised match on ESPNews.

Single match tickets for that match and all home matches in April are now on sale.

Season tickets, group tickets, and 7 Match Flex Plans are also available, with full season tickets starting at just $10 per match. Call (901) 721-6000 or go to www.memphis901fc.com/tickets for more information on all ticket options.
