Volesky, Robinson Named to TOW for Week 29
SEASIDE, Calif. - Monterey Bay F.C. played two matches in Week 29, a high scoring midweek draw at home against Phoenix Rising FC and a scoreless weekend draw on the road against Miami FC. Following a busy two-result week, forward Christian Volesky earned USL Championship Team of the Week honors for Week 29, while defender Grant Robinson was named to the bench.

Reaching back into Week 28, the goals were Volesky's second and third in just two matches. In addition, the forward added seven duels won, four shots on target, and two tackles.
