Sebastian Driussi and Ethan Finlay were rewarded for their two goals apiece in Austin FC's 5-1 victory over Inter Miami CF Sunday with MLS Team of the Week honors.
This week's roster was dotted with Verde across the board: while Driussi made the MLS starting XI midfield and Finlay was placed on the Week 2 bench, head coach Josh Wolff was also given the nod as the league's Coach of the Week.
Driussi and Finlay each scored twice in the 5-1 Sunday smackdown, with Driussi starting the scoring run in the 22nd minute and scoring once more at the beginning of the second half. Finlay, who came in after the half, headed in a goal and finished off the game with a goal in the last minute to land the second brace of the match.
The honors come as Austin FC sits atop the Western Conference for the first time in its history: hot off two five-goal victories, the undefeated team is the first MLS club in history to score 10 goals in the first two matches of any season.

Austin police are investigating the killing of Moriah "Mo" Wilson after she was found with gunshot wounds inside an Austin home.
Wilson, a gravel and mountain bike racer, was visiting Austin from Colorado in preparation for the Gravel Locos race on Saturday taking place in Hico, a small town 2 hours from Austin.
On Wednesday, her roommate came home and found Wilson unresponsive with "a lot of blood near her,” police said. It is now being investigated as a suspicious death. No further information on the suspect or motive behind the killing are available at this time.
Wilson recently had become a full-time biker after winning a slew of races in the past year.
Some of your favorite Instagram filters can’t be used in Texas anymore and Austinites are sounding off on social media.
Meta, Facebook and Instagram’s parent company, announced on Wednesday that certain filters would no longer be available in Texas.
The change is a result of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit against Meta, alleging the company uses facial recognition technology that violates laws in Texas. A release from Meta says it stopped using facial recognition tech in November 2021 and denies Paxton’s allegations.
Some Austinites bemoaned the shift, saying some of their favorite filters were now unavailable.
