Phoenix Rising FC attacker – Solomon Asante is on the beat of making United Soccer League Championship [USL] history for most goals and assists.

The Ghanaian midfielder netted his 20th goal of the regular season last night, becoming the seventh player in the Championship’s history to reach such milestone in a single season.

Asante has scored a combined 34 goals and assists – fully 14 ahead of his closest competitor in that category.

Below statistics puts Asante in a pole position to smash the record:

Most Goals

Since May 18’s game against Las Vegas Lights FC, Asante has scored 17 goals in 16 appearances, including a stretch in which he scored in seven consecutive games.

Having been held off the scoresheet only twice in that span, Asante certainly seems on course to give this record a serious run.

Most Assists

Asante currently sits on 14 assists this season, making this a much more attainable goal over the final eight games of the season. That’s partly thanks to the reliable finishing provided primarily by Adam Jahn alongside Asante this season, but also due to Asante’s chance creation rate.

The Ghanaian is fourth in the Championship in Chances Created with 71 – an average of 2.95 per game – and second in Chances Created from Open Play with 54 – an average of 2.25. Three more helpers in eight games should comfortably be on the radar.

Most Shots

In terms of shot at goal, Asante currently leads the Championship with 89 total shots, which is a lot, but he’s been as much quality as quantity this season with a conversion rate of 22.47 percent on all shots and 48 of his efforts landing on target.
