The club extended the streak to five with a 4-1 victory over Bethlehem Steel FC last Sunday. During this five-match streak, Nashville SC has earned three wins and two draws, including two road victories. Beyond this streak, Nashville has lost just one league match since the beginning of May.
3) A Scoring Party – During Nashville SC’s five-match unbeaten streak, the club has found scoring from a multitude of sources. Eight different Nashville SC players (Daniel Ríos, Alan Winn, Kharlton Belmar, Cameron Lancaster, Lebo Moloto, Ken Tribbett, Ropapa Mensah and Kosuke Kimura) have scored a goal during this run. Even though he has not found the back of the net in the last two matches, Ríos is tied for first place in the Eastern Conference in goals.
