Welcome to Boys in Not Gold. Wonder what Nashville SC’s players on loan are up to? Here’s your regular recap of the dudes wearing somebody else’s colors (temporarily).
New loan signing, played the USL Championship season with Oklahoma City Energy.
Cochran played 13 games for Oklahoma City Energy, and was subbed off once. He faced 63 shots and saved 41 of them, allowing 22 goals for a 65.1% save percentage. He caught one cross and punched five away, and cleared the ball 12 times. In distribution, he completed 219 of 356 passes (61.5%), with 61.8% of them longballs. He did manage one key pass.
OKC was dreadful, finishing 1-8-7. His compatriot at goalkeeper, Cody Laurendi, had similar save numbers (with a smaller sample), so I wouldn’t ready anything negative into what look like mediocre stats: he was getting shelled.
Cochran should be available for selection beginning next week, though Nashville very specifically noted that he enters as the third-string keeper.
On loan with Chattanooga Red Wolves SC in USL League One
Chattanooga Red Wolves’ match against Orlando City B, scheduled for Saturday, was postponed. No makeup date has been announced.
The Red Wolves are 5-5-3, and have slid to sixth in League One. They’ll need to close out the season with three straight wins to have any shot at the two playoff positions.
Up next: Chattanooga Red Wolves v. Forward Madison FC • Saturday at 1 p.m. EDT
On loan with Charlotte Independence in the USL Championship
Haakenson started and played 80 minutes in Charlotte’s 2-1 loss to Charleston Battery in the first round of the USL Championship playoffs. The game was tied when he left it, and the Independence ultimately fell in extra time. Playing as a left winger in Charlotte’s 3-diamond-3 formation, he completed 11/16 passes, 3/6 duels (including his only aerial), took one shot on-target and one off the frame, completed 1/2 crosses, made one interception, drew two fouls, and committed one himself.
Charlotte’s season is complete.
On loan with Louisville City FC in the USL Championship.
Lancaster started and played a nice 69 minutes in Louisville’s 2-0 win over Pittsburgh Riverhounds in the first round of the USL Championship playoffs. His 17th-minute goal ultimately stood up as the game-winner (though teammate Corben Bone would add an insurance tally in the 86th after Lancaster had been subbed out):
He also completed 11/15 passes, won 3/6 duels (1/2 aerial), took three more shots (one on-target, two blocked), blocked two shots himself, and drew two fouls while committing one.
Louisville advances to the second round of the playoffs.
Up next: Louisville City FC v. Saint. Louis FC • 7:30 p.m. EDT Saturday
On loan with Sacramento Republic in USL Championship.
Scott did not see the field as Sacramento lost 1-0 in stoppage time to Phoenix Rising. The winning goal was positively Maradonan:
Sacramento’s season is complete.
