MN Migration: Yueill Helps Get First Win for Reno 1868 FC

by on 9 May 2017

In this week’s recap of Minnesotans playing professionally outside of the state: Defensive struggles for Miller and Cropper, Kallman gets a birthday win and promotion is out of reach for Akale

Jackson Yueill continued his travels and returned to Reno 1868 FC in a 4-0 win over Phoenix Rising FC. Yueill started on the left side of the midfield, but roamed later in the game. The former Bruin completed 84 percent of his passes, but didn’t create any chances before he was subbed on in the 84th minute. The win was the club’s first in its inaugural season.

After a 1-0 loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps, the Colorado Rapids are on a five-game losing streak. Last season, the Rapids lost a total of six games. Eric Miller went the distance at right back. The defender tallied five interceptions, three clearances, and six defensive recoveries.

Calum Mallace made his third appearance for the Montreal Impact in a 1-0 win over D.C. United. Mallace came on in the 78th minute to help close out the game. In his short stint, the midfielder completed five passes and made one defensive recovery.

The New England Revolution suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Columbus Crew SC. Cody Cropper made four saves in his 10th start, but was let down by his defenders. Both goals came off counterattacks capped off with impressive shots that needed highlight saves to stop. So far this season, the Revolution keeper has given up the most goals in MLS.

Kassey Kallman and the Washington Spirit earned their first win of the season with a 4-3 result against Sky Blue FC. It was a rough night for Kallman who was involved in all three of Sky Blue’s goals. The first two came from her side of the field after she had drifted to cover centrally. The third came from the spot after Kallman committed a foul in the box. Despite the goals, Kallman was happy to win on her birthday.

Before its game even started, Villarreal CF C knew it could not earn promotion this season. Villarreal CF B played earlier and failed to earn a promotion playoff spot so the younger squad could not move up no matter how it finished in the table. This news put a damper on the game and led to a 1-0 loss to CD Buñol. Mukwelle Akale played the full 90, but was unable to spark his team to life.

Teal Bunbury was left off the game day roster for the New England Revolution against D.C. United.

Cat Parkhill remained on the bench for FC Kansas City in a 1-1 tie with the Orlando Pride.

Tyler David and Saint Louis FC saw their game postponed because of flooding to their stadium
