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.
