Kharlton Belmar’s offensive efforts and contributions on Saturday night against Reno 1868 FC earned the striker a selection to the USL Championship Team of the Week bench for Week 12. The honor is Belmar’s ninth selection to the USL Team of the Week over his decorated Championship career.
Belmar bagged his first career multi-assist game with the boys in Old Glory Red after the attacker set up the first two of his sides’ three goals during the Indomitable Club’s 3-3 draw this past weekend against its regional rival. The former VCU Ram elevated his assist tally on the season up to four – currently the most by a Republic FC player.

The first came in the 5thminute when Belmar sprinted with possession deep into Reno territory and whipped in a cross that Sam Werner guided home with a header to level the game at one apiece. In the 32nd minute, Belmar spotted Dariusz Formella in space, allowing the Polish playmaker to drive forward and deliver a strike to lift SRFC to a 2-1 lead.
Belmar created four scoring chances, served three crosses and contributed three shots to lead the attack for the Indomitable Club. Belmar’s 27 total passes in the opponent’s half was also tied with Drew Skundrich and Matt Mahoney for the most by a Republic FC player this past weekend.
Belmar is the Indomitable Club’s ninth Team of the Week selection and fourth on the bench during the 2020 campaign – joining a trio of Republic FC players have been named to the Team of the Week bench including Juan Barahona for Week 1, Hayden Sargis for Week 7 and Cameron Iwasa for Week 8.
