Nashville SC overcame adverse conditions to beat Bethlehem Steel on the road Sunday. See GIFs from the action here.

OK, maybe Gary Smith was onto something when he said the ref only gave a yellow because he thought it was probably a dive.

v. good strike, and the initial runs off-ball made NSC think the first taker was going to hit it.

Not a soccer play at all. Sort of embarrassing.

TV analyst spent several minutes talking about how there “wasn’t much in” this kick that flips a player 180 vertical degrees and could have broken his neck.

Yellow-carded.

Also yellow-carded.

Lancaster was close a couple times, in addition to his goal.

Speaking of his goal.

But did you remember the earlier attempted overhead strike? (This one from Lebo Moloto).

Love the dude holding him onside being the one to throw the arm up and stop playing. (The assistant referee explained as much to Bethlehem captain James Chambers, who believed it no questions asked, by the way).

There’s a lot behind this volley, and it drew a very nice save.

The shooting accuracy isn’t always there, but when Michael Reed gets one on frame, it’s gonna be a golazo.

Live I had thought this was a potential penalty. The broadcast makes it pretty clear Ropapa was the aggressor (as the official called it).

Nice dribbling technique from Ropapa. Still wish he had a left.

Tribbett via the head.

Tribbett almost gets on the end of this cross. Makes sure the goalie (nice catch from the ground, by the way) is OK after knocking him over.

This, to me, is a good team goal.

Connor Sparrow reel No. 4. Easy not to realize in a game that could have been 6-0 that the keeper probably prevented it from being 3-3.
