MN Migration: Jome Sets up Nashville Opener

by on 7 June 2018

In this week’s recap of Minnesotans playing professionally outside of the state: Bunbury scores twice while Cropper makes progress.

Ismalia Jome earned his first assist for Nashville SC in a 3-1 win over Penn FC. The former Loon played just shy of 60 minutes on the left side of the midfield. In the 36th minute Jome charged down the field with a defender on his hip. With little space, he sent a cross to the top of the box for Brandon Allen to tap in.

Earlier in the week, Nasville also defeated Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC. Jome came in during the 70th minute as a left wing back. During his short stint he tallied a few defensive plays and nearly set up a goal late in the game.

Atlanta United 2 earned its first shutout of the season with a 0-0 draw against the Tampa Bay Rowdies. Andrew Kendall-Moullin went the full 90 at center back. While the defender lost more duels than he won, he did finish with a team-high nine clearances.

Teal Bunbury found the back of the net twice this past week. The first goal earned the New England Revolution a 1-1 draw with Atlanta United. After going a goal down in the first half, the Revs were awarded a PK in the 88th minute. Bunbury stepped up to the spot and buried his only chance of the game.

Bunbury scored his eighth goal of the season in a 2-1 win over the New York Red Bulls. The Red Bulls took an early lead, but the Revs leveled just before halftime. Bunbury earned an assist on New England’s first goal and, in the 77th minute, got one of his own. Cristian Penilla took the ball to the end line before threading a ball to Bunbury inside the six.

Tyler David went the full 90 for Bollklubben-46 in a tough 6-0 loss to FC Honka Akatemia. The result leaves BK-46 without a win since the season opener. Though the results have not been great, David has not missed a minute of play.

Cody Cropper made it to the bench for the first time this season for New England’s win over the New York Red Bulls.

Jackson Yueill did not see time for the San Jose Earthquakes in a 2-1 loss to the Chicago Fire.

Calum Mallace watched from the bench as LAFC suffered a 2-1 loss to FC Dallas.
