Hartford Athletic News Release

Triston Hodge has been named to the USL Championship Team of the Week for Week 13. This is Hartford’s seventh selection to Team of the Week, and Hodge’s second this season (Week Five). He joins Deshane Beckford (Week Five), Anderson Asiedu and Paul Walters (Week Three), and Romario Williams (Week One) on the club’s impressive list through the 2024 season so far.

Hodge was active on both sides of the ball in Hartford’s 1-1 draw against Rhode Island FC this Saturday, distributing well in attacking areas and making things difficult for Rhode Island while protecting Hartford’s goal. The Trinidad and Tobago International was the assist man on Joe Farrell’s equalizing goal in the 24th minute, looping in a perfect cross at the top of the six yard box finished off by Farrell’s well-placed header. Hodge created two more chances, won eight ground duels, and added three clearances on the defensive end to help his club secure a point after falling down 1-0 early at home.

Hodge has been reliable for Hartford this season, as he’s the only player to start all 11 matches and leads the team in minutes played (943). Defensively, he leads the team in duels won (79) and is second on the team in tackles won (14).
