Anor captures MLS weekly honor

Former University of South Florida men’s soccer standout Bernardo Anor made the most of his first professional start.

Anor, now with Major League Soccer’s Columbus Crew, scored his first career goal and tallied an assist in a 2-0 victory Saturday over the Houston Dynamo. For his effort, Anor on Monday was named the MLS player of the week.

The 48th overall pick in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, Anor had been limited to just 26 total minutes of playing time prior to Saturday, including missing some time over the past few weeks with an ankle injury. However, he wasn’t limited in any way against Houston.

Anor set up Crew’s first goal late in the opening half with a pass to Andrés Mendoza, and he put the game away when he found the back of the net with about 13 minutes left in the second half. You can see video of that goal HERE.

Anor was a three-time All-Big East Conference selection with the Bulls.
