USL PRO named its team of the week for Week 13 of the 2014 season on Tuesday as OKC Energy FC's Adda Djeziri and Michael Thomas were named to the team. The pair scored both Energy goals as OKC blanked Sacramento, 2-0, at home on Saturday.

Djeziri's goal ended 35 minutes of scoreless play on Saturday, as the Energy FC midfielder took a pass from Christian Duke on an OKC 3-on-2 break and put it past diving Sacramento keeper Dominil Jakubek for a 1-0 OKC lead.

OKC capped the scoring at 2-0 late in the match, when Steven Perry found Thomas with a cross from the right side of the pitch, and Thomas chipped the ball into an open left side of the Republic FC net.

The honor is the second this season for each player as Thomas was named player of the week for Week 11 on June. Djeziri was named to the Team of the Week

Dayton Dutch Lions forward Aaron Schoenfeld was named player of the week after his pair of goals led the Dutch Lions to a 2-1 victory at Arizona United SC Wednesday night at the Peoria Sports Complex.

Energy FC is back in action Sunday against the Rochester Rhinos at 7 p.m. CT at Pribil Stadium.
