The 30th goal of Brandon Allen's New York Red Bulls II career gave his team a 1-0 win over Saint Louis FC and won him a place on the official USL 2017 Team of Week 15.

Allen has previously made the TotW bench on two occasions this season, but this was his first appearance in the starting lineup of the weekly all-league selection in 2017.
Overall, Vincent Bezecourt remains NYRB II's TotW appearances leader for 2017 with three appearances in the starting XI and one on the bench.
|USL 2017 TotW||Starting Lineup||Bench|
|Week 1||Vincent Bezecourt|
|Week 2||Vincent Bezecourt|
|Week 4||Vincent Bezecourt|
|Week 6||Justin Bilyeu||Brandon Allen|
|Weeks 7 & 8|
|Week 9||Brandon Allen|
|Week 10||Junior Flemmings|
|Week 11||Vincent Bezecourt|
|Week 15||Brandon Allen|
Allen is currently expected to join Minnesota United on loan, raising the possibility he won't appear again for NYRB II this season (it is not unusual for players on the verge of a transfer to be held out of competitive play to protect them from the risk of injury prior to the deal's conclusion).
if Week 15 was Allen's last appearance for NYRB II - in 2017 at least - he leaves the team on a high note.
NYRB II is next in action on Sunday, July 9, against Bethlehem Steel.
