Charleston Battery forward Ataulla Guerra has been named to the USL Team of the Week for Week 12 following his performance in the 3-3 draw with Indy Eleven last Wednesday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Guerra scored his team-leading seventh goal of the season in the 80th minute against the Eleven to momentarily put the Battery ahead. Indy scored two goals in quick succession to edge themselves in front before Guerra set up Tah Brian Anunga’s 94th minute equalizer.

The Team of the Week honor is Guerra’s first this season. The Trinidadian attacker was named as a reserve in the Week 8 team.

Guerra’s performance in Indianapolis helped the Battery extend their unbeaten streak to eleven games in all competitions. Guerra and the Battery will put that unbeaten streak on the line tomorrow night against Atlanta United in the U.S. Open Cup. The fourth round match is scheduled to kick off at 7:30 PM at Fifth Third Bank Stadium in Kennesaw, Georgia.
