·1 min read

TORONTO — York United forward Osaze De Rosario, son of former Canadian star Dwayne De Rosario, has been named the CPL’s player of the week after a two-goal performance in a 4-2 win at HFX Wanderers FC on Monday.

The 21-year-old now has eight goals this season to stand third in the league scoring race behind Pacific FC's Alejandro Diaz (13 goals) and Forge FC's Woobens Pacius (nine goals).

York (4-9-5), which has won two of its last three matches including its first two road victories of the season, visits Valour FC (5-6-5) on Sunday.

De Rosario, a product of the Toronto FC and New York City FC academies, is the first York United player to win the weekly player award this season.

He signed with York in April after leaving Ukraine's Rukh Lviv, which he joined in September 2021. He is on a one-year deal with York with club options through 2024.
