Nashville SC drew Ottawa 3-3 on Saturday. Below are our collective evaluations of each individual performance.
A rating of 6 denotes and average performance. Each player starts out with a 6 and their performance either adds or subtracts from that rating.
Scores are determined after rewatching the match and looking at the stats, and are the averaged total of each Speedway member's ratings.
Players must have been on the pitch for at least 10 minutes to receive a score. Players who come on later than the 80th minute are ineligible for a rating.
Matt Pickens - 6.5: Possibly could have done better with Haworth's free kick, and probably should have done better on Fall's late equalizer. Not a poor night, but he's had better.
Kosuke Kimura - 7.5: Got involved in the attack and put in some of his best service of the season.
Darnell King - 7.5: Wasn't involved in any of Ottawa's goals, and passed really well out of the back.
Liam Doyle - 6.5: Committed a needless foul to give Ottawa the freekick they scored from, and was taken off at halftime to give Nashville more pace in defense.
Justin Davis - 7.0: Continued to push forward in attack, and he delivered some great set pieces. Took a poor angle on François's goal, and could have done better.
Taylor Washington - 7.5: Typically got forward well, and his final cross was really dangerous.
Michael Reed © - 7.0: Moved the ball well, but got pulled out of position defensively several times.
Matt LaGrassa - 7.0: Got involved well in the final third, and overall had a good night. Failed to put pressure on Fall, and gave him plenty of space to score the equalizer.
Lebo Moloto - 8.0: Linked play really well, and put in some great service to the forwards, including his first-touch pass to set up Ríos for his goal.
Daniel Ríos - 8.5: Took his goal really well and his hold up play was fantastic.
Ropapa Mensah - 9.0: Consistently found space and had plenty of chances to score. Probably should have put more away, but he got an eventual goal from a set piece, and his ball in the buildup to Ríos's goal was gorgeous.
Bradley Bourgeois - 7.0: Came on at halftime for Liam Doyle, and did a good job against Ottawa's pacey attack. It's hard to blame him for François's goal, but he probably was a half step slow to react.
Cameron Lancaster - 8.0: Replaced Mensah in the 70th minute, and 62 seconds later he scored with his first touch of the match. He's showing why Nashville was so eager to sign him.
Kharlton Belmar - N/A: On for Kimura in the 83rd minute.
Gary Smith - 7.0: Set up his team well, and continued to create quality chances. His change to bring on Bourgeois worked well, and overall Nashville performed quite well. It's unfortunate that defensive lapses allowed Ottawa to score three when Nashville should have won the match 3-4 to nothing.
