Twelve games into the season, Teal Bunbury is now one goal away from matching last year’s total. The forward went 89 minutes for the New England Revolution in a 3-3 draw with the Vancouver Whitecaps. In the 59th minute Bunbury’s defensive effort forced a turnover outside of Vancouver’s box. He then followed the play and finished a cross from the top of the six. The goal was the 4th scored by either team in a 12 minute span.

Ismalia Jome made his debut for Nashville SC during a 3-1 win over Mississippi Brilla in the U.S. Open Cup. Jome came in for Justin Davis at left back in the 63rd minute.
During the weekend Jome was a second half sub in a 1-1 draw with the Charleston Battery. He came in during the 81st minute at left wing back lining up next to Justin Davis. It appears that Jome will be playing a defensive role for Nashville. While he did not see much of the ball, the defender did win a couple of duels.
It was another rough night for Andrew Kendall-Moullin and Atlanta United 2. Looking for their first away win of the season, Atlanta fell 4-0 to North Carolina FC. Kendall-Moullin made his third start at center back with mixed results. The defender had opportunities to prevent the third and fourth goals, but things did not go his way. Those moments aside, Kendall-Moullin had a strong showing completing 92% of his passes and racking up numerous defensive stats.
Apparently Tyler David found a club in Finland. The former St. Louis FC player signed with Bollklubben-46 (BK-46) earlier this month. The team plays in Group B of the Kakkonen, the third tier of Finnish club soccer. So far, the midfielder has played every minute in the first five games of the season.
I'd missed this before, but Tyler David signed with Finnish side BK-46 this month. The Lakeville native was a regular with USL side St. Louis FC for the last two seasons. He already has 4 starts for his new club. pic.twitter.com/pg5YDCCjN4

As expected, Jackson Yueill found himself on the bench for San Jose. The changes did little to help the Earthquakes, suffering a 1-0 loss to the LA Galaxy.
Cody Cropper stayed in New England for the Revolution’s game against Vancouver.
Callum Mallace returned to the bench, but did not see time for LAFC in a 1-1 draw with D.C. United.
