Phoenix Rising FC forward Junior Flemmings was named to Week 7’s USL Championship Team of the Week, the league announced Tuesday.

Fellow PRFC teammate and countryman Jason Johnson also received an honorable mention (listed on the bench).

The Jamaican duo combined for three goals and two assists in Phoenix’s 4-0 win over Tacoma Defiance FC on Saturday.

Both the game’s and Flemmings’ opening goal was assisted by defender A.J. Cochran who was named to Week 6’s Team of the Week.

Johnson was even able to assist Flemmings on his second goal of the match just before the half.

This marks the fifth week this year in which a Rising FC player has been given a Team of the Week honor, the second for Flemmings and the first for Johnson.

Phoenix Rising FC returns to action April 27 away to Sacramento Republic FC.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. and the match can be audio streamed on
