The Gatorade Team of the Week for the fourteenth week of Canadian Premier League action in 2022, brought to you by Kristian Jack and OneSoccer's Oliver Platt.


Triston Henry (Forge FC) He wasn't called upon often against York United, but when he was Triston Henry came up big for Forge FC to preserve his fifth clean sheet of the season. This included a brilliant late save on Mateo Hernández.


Rezart Rama (Forge FC) A large part of Forge's attack against York ran through Rama, who had 110 touches during the match. He made 22 passes into the final third, and helped to set up Forge's opening goal with a clever through-ball. Karifa Yao (Cavalry FC) In a top-of-the-table clash against Atlético Ottawa, Yao was again one of the standout performers. He was strong in possession with 85 percent passing and 78 touches, and he was solid defensively making two tackles, two clearances and an interception. Malik Owolabi-Belewu (Forge FC) The young central defender was singled out as a top performer against York by coach Bobby Smyrniotis, and for good reason. He won eight of his ten duels, including all three in the air, and won four fouls during the match. Brett Levis (Valour FC) It was a very influential performance from Brett Levis, who had more touches than any other player on the park on Sunday. He won eight of his 12 duels, had two tackles and three interceptions against Halifax.


Charlie Trafford (Cavalry FC) Trafford has become a key player for Cavalry and again demonstrated his quality against Ottawa. He had three successful tackles, had three interceptions, won three fouls and had 87 per cent passing and was the standout player in an intense midfield battle. Aboubacar Sissoko (Forge FC) It was another dominant performance in the midfield from Sissoko against York. He won possession 11 times, including three in the final third, and made five tackles to help Forge pick up their first win in three matches. Ballou Tabla (Atlético Ottawa) Tabla was back in the goals during an excellent performance against league leaders Cavalry. He had five shot attempts, all of which came inside the Cavalry box. He also created two chances, and won five of his seven duels during the match. Gianni Dos Santos (Pacific FC) Dos Santos was a handful down the wing against FC Edmonton. He assisted on Josh Heard's goal, had three shots, created two chances and had 10 crosses during the match. Djenairo Daniels (Pacific FC) Pacific is back in the goals, and the play of Daniels has been a big reason why. He scored the game-winning goal, had four shots during the match including two on target and created a chance as well. He has now scored in back-to-back matches.


Moses Dyer (Valour FC) Finally back in his preferred attacking position, Dyer finally found the back of the net for Valour to give them their third straight victory. He had four shots during the match, and now has five goals on the season.
