Here's the list of all the top performers from Week 1 of the Fall Season:  

GK: Caleb Patterson-Sewell (Jacksonville Armada FC) – The veteran shot-stopper made seven saves in a 1-1 draw with the San Francisco Deltas.

DEF: Lovel Palmer (Indy Eleven) – He made 14 clearances and won four duels as Indy Eleven defeated FC Edmonton, 2-1.

DEF:  Mechack Jérôme (Jacksonville Armada FC) – The center back made nine clearances and won four duels as his side earned a point.

MID: Eric Calvillo (New York Cosmos) – The U.S. youth international scored a pair of goals as the Cosmos defeated Spring Season Champions Miami FC, 3-1. He was also named NASL Player of the Week. 

MID: Kobi Moyal (New York Cosmos) – Making his league debut, the Israeli international had an assist and then put the exclamation point on the win with his first league goal.

MID: Ben Fisk (FC Edmonton) – The Canadian international was lively for FC Edmonton and created three chances as well as picking up the assist on the Eddies’ lone goal of the game. FC Edmonton, though, fell to Indy Eleven.

FWD: Danny Cruz (San Francisco Deltas) – He provided a cool finish to earn the Deltas a point on the road against Jacksonville.
