Bobby Shuttleworth helped the Indomitable Club pick up some crucial road points to stay in the hunt for a spot in the Western Conference playoffs. Shuttleworth mades five saves in Republic FC's 2-1 road win in Austin, and recorded shutouts against Tacoma Defiance and Oklahoma City Energy FC. Across the entire month, Shuttleworth posted 10 saves and played 90 minutes in all five matches.
After a stellar month of August for the newcomer, Thomas Enevoldsen has not slowed down. He recorded his second brace since joining the club against Tacoma Defiance, and ended the month with a total of eight goals since his arrival in mid-August. Enevoldsen also notched two assists, and kept a passing percentage of 73.2 percent.
Darek Formella made the most of his 107 minutes played in September, with two huge match-winning goals, including one in Austin to secure all three points on the road. However, the goal that made news around the world was his match-winner against Rio Grande Valley FC. After netting the game-winning goal in the 80th minute, Formella was overwhelmed by his emotions, as the forward had played just three hours after receiving news that his father had lost his battle with cancer. The striker finally told his teammate Haris Chantzopoulos during the goal celebration, with the touching moment as he told the defender captured on camera.
