MN Migration: Yueill Goes the Distance In Loss

by on 19 July 2018

In this week’s recap of Minnesotans playing professionally outside of the State: Bunbury can’t find the net, and David is fighting to stay up.

Jackson Yueill played the full 90 for the San Jose Earthquakes in a 2-0 loss to the Montreal Impact. It was the midfielder’s fourth 90-minute shift this season. While the main storylines revolved around substitutions, Yueill made a case for continued involvement. The UCLA alumni controlled the midfield, completing 61 of 71 passes. Although he wasn’t able to create any chances, he did take a few shots from distance.

Two goals in stoppage time gave the LA Galaxy a 3-2 win over the New England Revolution. It was a relatively quiet night for Teal Bunbury who failed to make scoresheet for the second straight game. Since starting his scoring run earlier this season, the forward had not gone longer than one game without a goal. His best chance came in the second half when he stretched to connect with a cross, hitting the far post. Bunbury left the game in the 89th minute and had to watch the lead slip away from the bench.

No word yet on any possible new destinations for Cody Cropper, but Chicago, Orlando, San Jose or Vancouver could be looking for a change in net.

Calum Mallace did not make the eighteen for LAFC in a 0-0 draw with the Portland Timbers. However, the two sides meet again in US Open Cup play, and the midfielder could see time in that game.

Nashville SC suffered a 1-0 loss to Charlotte Independence. With his team trailing, Ismaila Jome entered the game in the 70th minute. The midfielder set up a scoring chance in the 85th minute and tried a shot from distance, but neither found the target.

After last week’s 6-1 loss, Atlanta United 2 made changes to their defense. Unfortunately, Andrew Kendall-Moullin was one casualty of the shuffle and missed the game day roster. However, the moves did the trick, and Atlanta earned a 2-1 win over Bethlehem Steel FC.

Bollklubben-46 suffered a 1-0 loss to Salon Palloilijat despite two PK saves by its keeper.  Continuing his streak of consecutive minutes, Tyler David put in a strong full shift at center back. The loss finds BK-45 three points into relegation. In an effort to turn the team around, new signings are expected to come that include an American forward.
