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 in what was an uneventful week in Not Gold.
On loan with Charlotte Independence in the USL Championship
Haakenson started and played 72 minutes as a left winger in Charlotte’s 0-0 draw against The Miami FC Saturday. He completed 17/24 passes, won 2/6 duels, took two shots (one on-target, one off-target), and was fouled twice.
Saturday, he entered as a halftime sub in the Independence’s 3-1 loss to Memphis 901 FC. His team was down 2-1 when he hit the pitch, playing striker. Despite limited time on the pitch, he was very active, completing all 10 of his passes, winning 2/7 duels (1/3 aerial), successfully completing his only crossing attempt, taking two shots (one off-target, one blocked), and making one tackle and one blocked shot defensively.
Charlotte Independence is 7-4-4, in second place in Group G. Their next point (or any dropped points for North Carolina FC) will seal a playoff spot.
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
Chattanooga is on a losing streak after a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Forward Madison FC Saturday. Dieterich started and went the distance (101 minutes) as one of the attacking central midfielders in a standard 4-3-3. He completed 30/34 passes, and made two interceptions defensively.
Chattanooga is 5-4-3, and will have to get back on the winning side of the ledger to move up from third into one of just two playoff positions.
Up next: Chattanooga Red Wolves have the week off.
On loan with Louisville City FC in the USL Championship.
Lancaster started and played 91 minutes in Louisville’s 1-0 win over Saint Louis FC Saturday. He took three shots (two off-target, one blocked), completed 10/13 passes, won 5/14 duels(!), 0/2 aerial, made two tackles and blocked one shot. He was also fouled three times and committed one foul.
Louisville (10-3-2) is in first place in Group E, and locked down not only a playoff berth, but first place in the group with the win.
Up next: Louisville City FC v. Sporting Kansas City II • Saturday at 7:30 p.m. CDT
On loan with Sacramento Republic in USL Championship.
Scott was an unused substitute in Sacramento’s 1-1 draw against Reno 1868 over the weekend.
Sacramento is 7-1-6, and in second place in Group A. With a 2-0 record to end the season, they’d have an outside shot to take over Reno for first.
Up next: Sacramento Republic @ Tacoma Defiance • Wednesday at 7 p.m. PDT
Sacramento Republic v. Portland Timbers II • Saturday at 7:30 p.m. PDT
