Boys in Not Gold: Aug. 17, 2021

Judge Bledd. Screengrab from broadcast

Short turnaround after I was real late on this post last week. However, an eventful week with a new loan,

Winger David Accam

On loan to Hammarby IF in Sweden

Accam was not in the squad for Hammarby’s 2-0 loss to IF Elfsborg in league play Sunday. The loss keeps Hammarby in the No. 5 spot in the Allsvenskan.

Up next: Hammarby v. FC Basel (Switzerland) in the UEFA Conference League • 12:30 a.m. CDT Thursday
Hammaby v. IF Elsborg (back2back, baby) in the Allsvenskan • 8 a.m. CDT Sunday

Midfielder Irakoze Donasiyano

On loan to OKC Energy FC in USL Championship

Donasiyano made the trip to Indianapolis for his first matchday with Energy FC, and came of the bench as a 76th-minute substitute in the 2-1 loss. Playing as a right holding midfielder, Donasiyano completed 6/8 passes and won 1/3 duels.

The loss dropped OKC to sixth in the Central Division – the top four teams make the playoffs – and the teams immediately surrounding have two or three games in-hand, so climbing will be quite tough.

Up next: OKC Energy FC v. Louisville City FC • 5 p.m. CDT Sunday (ESPN+)

Defender Tom Judge

On loan to Pittsburgh Riverhounds in USL Championship

Judge was on the bench, but did not make the pitch in his first game back after suffering a head injury in his USL debut. Pittsburgh lost 1-0 at Charlotte Independence, falling to second in the Atlantic Division.

Up next: Pittsburgh Riverhounds v. Tampa Bay Rowdies • Wednesday, 6:00 p.m. CDT (ESPN+)
Pittsburgh Riverhounds v. Atlanta United 2 • Sunday, 6:00 p.m. CDT (ESPN+)

Defender Miguel Nazarit

On loan to Independiente Santa Fe in Colombia

Nazarit has yet to see the pitch or make the bench in the Liga BetPlay Clausura. He suffered a muscle injury in training last week, and was not in the squad for Monday’s 2-0 loss to La Equidad in league action.

Up next: Independiente Santa Fe v. Deportivo Pereira in Liga BetPlay • 2:00 p.m. CDT Saturday

Defender Nick Hinds and goalkeeper Elliot Panicco

On season-long loans to Austin Bold FC in USL Championship. Nashville has right of recall if necessary.

Panicco and Hinds both started and went the distance in Bold FC’s scoreless draw against THE Miami FC. The result is disappointing given that Miami went to 10 men and lost its starting keeper (former Nashville SC USL player Connor Sparrow) in the 69th minute, and went a second man down in stoppage time.

Panicco made two saves and has two punched clearances. He completed 14/19 passes, and only 10 of the attempts were longballs with Austin playing out of the back a bit more than usual.

Hinds completed 37/44 passes, won 5/6 duels(!), including his only aerial. He made a tackle, two clearances, and an interception. He was fouled twice and committed one foul himself. However, he’ll still be disappointed in the outcome because one of his two shots off-target rung the post in the 59th minute. It was an exciting game, worth checking out the highlights:

Bold FC is down to fifth in the Mountain Division – one spot out of the playoffs – and also mentioned, uh, that it’s almost certainly folding or moving after the 2021 season.

Up next: Austin Bold v. RGV Toros • TONIGHT, 9:00 p.m. CDT (ESPN+)
