Nashville’s road woes continue with loss at Toronto FC II

(NashvilleSC.com, 07.28.18)

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A multitude of travel difficulties and a third game in eight days made for tired legs for Nashville SC as it fell to previously winless Toronto FC II, 2-0.

90 in a nutshell

Nashville Appeared to have an early lead when Brandon Allen put one into the back of the net off a corner kick. Allen ended up being called offside and the goal was wiped off the board.

In the 34th minute, Nashville keeper C.J. Cochran came off his line to cut down the angle from a Toronto attack. When attempting to play the ball, Cochran committed a foul and Toronto was given a penalty. Luca Uccello converted and gave Toronto a 1-0 lead heading into the break.

Minutes into the second half, Toronto doubled its lead. A long throw-in led to Matthew Srbely working his way across the top of the 18-yard box, around the Nashville defense. Srbely placed his shot perfectly into the side netting to add an insurance tally.

Nashville used its subs to bring more offensive players into the game, but the scoring woes continued as it was shut out for the fourth time in five July games.

Watching the East

Even with the loss, other results went Nashville’s way, keeping Nashville in seventh in the Eastern Conference.
