Atlanta United Loan Watch: Kenwyne scores, Carleton starts

New, comments

How’d the ATLUTD loanees do this past week?

Soccer: 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying-Trinidad & Tobago at USA Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

Chris McCann - Coventry City - League One

Millwall 1, Coventry City 1

McCann missed out on this one with an injury. The good news is that it doesn’t appear to be very serious as he was 50/50 to be in contention to play. He should be back relatively soon.

Tito Villalba - Club Tijuana - Liga MX

Monterrey 0, Club Tijuana 0

Liga MX returned from the international break this week as first-place Xolos were held to a scoreless draw at Monterrey. Hector Villalba was again an unused sub. This is the fourth straight match he’s been left on the bench.

Kenwyne Jones - Central FC - TT Pro League

Central FC 2, Defence Force 2 (3-1 PK)

The TT Pro League kicked off with a opening cup match similar to England’s Community Shield. However theirs is called the Digicel Charity Shield. Central won on penalties with Kenwyne scoring a goal early in the match. Unforunately there’s no video of said goal. For a deeper breakdown of the match, head over to wired868 for their match recap.

Junior Burgos - Tampa Bay Rowdies - NASL

Puerto Rico FC 0, Tampa Bay Rowdies 0

Burgos didn’t make the bench in a scoreless draw as his rough season continues.

Alex Tambakis, Andrew Carleton, & Jeffrey Otoo - Charleston Battery - USL

Charleston Battery 2, Bethlehem Steel 1

All three Atlanta loanees featured for the Battery in a 2-1 win. Alex Tambakis got the start in net and made a few key saves. His only goal allowed was off a penalty kick in which he was very unlucky not to save. He got a hand on the attempt but it ricocheted into the roof of the net.

Andrew Carleton got the start as well and became the youngest player ever to do so for the Battery. He looked lively in his 60+ minutes. He had several shot attempts from outside of the box that narrowly missed. His dribbling ability was also on display as he wow’d everyone in attendance and the TV announcers with his skills.

Jeffrey Otoo came on for Carleton and looked just as good, without a doubt his best performance as a member of the Battery. He too narrowly missed a goal from outside of the box.
