MN Migration: Bunbury Earns Weekly Honors

by on 16 May 2018

In this week’s recap of Minnesotans playing professionally outside of the state: Yueill and Mallace take on their home team.

The New England Revolution added to the woes of the reigning MLS Cup champions. The Rev’s jumped out to a 3-0 lead and withstood Toronto FC’s attack to hold on to a 3-2 victory. New England’s first goal came just minutes into the game when Teal Bunbury released Cristian Penilla on the break.

The Revs started the 2nd half with an even quicker goal. This time it was Bunbury that found himself taking the ball at speed toward Toronto’s goal. Once he entered the box, he sent in a shot that took a deflection and found its way just inside the far post. His performance earned him a spot in the Team of the Week.

Jackson Yueill was one of the few Minnesotans to leave TCF Bank Stadium feeling good. The midfielder helped the San Jose Earthquakes to a 3-1 win over Minnesota United FC. It was San Jose’s second win of the season. So far the Quakes have only defeated Minnesota. Yueill went 63 minutes and set up two near chances that weren’t converted.

Atlanta United 2 dropped their fourth straight game with a 2-0 loss to Ottawa Fury FC. Atlanta has not won a game since their season opener in March. Andrew Kendall-Moullin started on the bench, but came on in the 70th minute. With the final scoreline already reached and Ottawa sitting back the midfielder didn’t make a single defensive play. Most of his passing was keeping possession and changing the point of attack. The two attacking passes he attempted didn’t find the mark.

Calum Mallace played one minute Wednesday against Minnesota United in a 2-0 win for LAFC. He did not touch the ball once. The midfielder did not leave the bench in a 2-2 draw with NYCFC.

Mukwelle Akale missed the game day roster for Villarreal CF C’s final game of the season. Villarreal lost to Almazora 1-0.

Cody Cropper is still sitting third in New England’s depth chart.
