Del Campo's game-winner at the 90th minute earns him a spot in league's Best XI

FRESNO, Calif. - Center back Ramon Martin Del Campo was named to the USL Championship's Best XI for Week 25, the league announced Tuesday. Del Campo provided for the 90th-minute heroics in the club's 2-1 win over Colorado Springs, scoring the game-winning goal to give Fresno sole possession of second place in the Western Conference standings. Del Campo also won 7 of 9 duels and 6 of 7 aerials and completed 16 of 21 passes.

This is Del Campo's second TOTW award this season, also earning it in Week 23 when he scored the game-winning goal at the 79th minute of Fresno's 2-1 win against OKC Energy FC. It is the sixth of his three-year USL career. He received the honor twice last season and twice in 2017 with Ottawa Fury FC.
