Welcome to Boys in Not Gold. Wonder what Nashville SC’s players on loan (or on national team duty – or new to the squad) are up to? Here’s your regular recap. Now, more regular than usual, back on its typical Tuesday.
On loan with Charlotte Independence in the USL Championship
Haakenson started and played 75 minutes before being subbed out in the 69th in a 3-1 Independence win over Birmingham Legion. Playing as a left winger in an attack-minded 3-4-3, Haakenson did not shoot a single time, but created three chances through his passing, completing 13/16 attempts and 1/3 crosses. He won 3/9 duels (1/5 aerial), and made one tackle.
Charlotte Independence is 6-3-3, in second place in Group G.
Up next: Charlotte Independence @ North Carolina FC • Saturday at 7:00 p.m. EDT
On loan with Chattanooga Red Wolves SC in USL League One
Dieterich started and play 89 minutes, scoring his first professional goal in a 2-1 win over Richmond Kickers Saturday:
Playing as a right central midfielder in a very lopsided 4-4-2 – with both forwards shading to his side – he completed 21 of 31 passes, and successfully connected on one cross. He also won 2/4 duels and made one tackle.
He scored again in a 2-0 win over Union Omaha this afternoon:
He played 90 minutes as the right midfielder in a similar 4-diamond-2 or lopsided 4-4-2 as the weekend game. Dieterich completed 19/23 passes and won 4/9 duels (1/4 aerial), and was fouled once. He also made two tackles, one clearance, and an interception.
Chattanooga is 5-2-3, and up to second place in USL League One – an important position, given that the top two teams at season’s end will make a two-legged final.
Up next: Chattanooga Red Wolves v. Greenville Triumph • Saturday at 1:00 p.m. EDT
On loan with Louisville City FC in the USL Championship.
Lancaster started and played 79 minutes at striker in Louisville City’s 3-0 win over Saint Louis FC. He scored a goal on five shots (with one off target and three blocked, it was his only shot on goal), with that goal looking like so:
Louisville (7-3-2) is in first place in Group E.
Up next: Louisville City FC @ Indy Eleven • Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. EDT
Louisville City FC v. Memphis 901 FC • Saturday ay 7:30 p.m. EDT
On loan with Sacramento Republic in USL Championship.
Scott was on the bench for Sacramento’s 3-3 draw against Reno 1868 FC Saturday. After starter Rafael Diaz allowed three goals in just five shots on-target, he has to be closer to getting his shot.
Sacramento is 7-1-4, in second place in Group A.
Up next: Sacramento Republic v. Tacoma Defiance • Saturday at 7:30 p.m. PDT
