First selection for the Cape Verde international.

Orange County SC returned to the win column last weekend, and as a result have representation on USL’s Team of the Week once again. Forward Wuilito Fernandes has been selected to the Team of the Week bench for Week 17.

Fernandes, 27, is in his rookie season as a professional and has taken much of the striker’s minutes with Duke Lacroix sidelined due to injury. Against Seattle Sounders 2 on Sunday, the Cape Verde international scored a goal and an assist in a 2-1 win on the road.

Fernandes now has two goals and one assist in 10 league appearances for Orange County so far this season. Orange County are back in action on Wednesday night in the USL Game of the Week on ESPN3 against Rio Grande Valley FC. Considering the squad depth depletion of late, there’s a very good chance Fernandes will feature in that game, too. Congrats to him on the recognition this week.
