On Saturday night, TFC II will be in Madison, Wisconsin for a game against Forward Madison FC.
After an impressive 2-0 win against Lansing Ignite FC, TFC II sit third in the USL League One standings, with 7 points through three matches. The only two teams above them are North Texas SC, who have won all three of their matches, and South Georgia Tormenta FC, who have 11 points through six matches.
Forward Madison FC have picked up four points in four matches, and sit second-last in the table.
In the 2-0 win over Lansing, TFC II had a couple of standout players, both of whom made the USL League One Team of the Week. Both of the goalscorers, Luca Petrasso and Adolfo Ovalle, were recognized for their displays.

Yes, you read that correctly. Both sides had a player called Dominic Oduro. Charlotte had the one familiar to TFC fans - and he scored their only goal in a 1-1 draw.
