Nashville SC’s Dax McCarty and Gary Smith named to MLS Team of the Week

Major League Soccer announced the Team of the Week for Week 11 on Monday, featuring two Nashville SC representatives.

Midfielder Dax McCarty earned a spot in the midfield after his performance against Atlanta United on Saturday. His goal and three assists was the single most productive outing of this 15 year MLS career.

In addition to his contributions to the scoresheet, McCarty completed 80% of his passes and created three chances on the night.

Gary Smith was selected as the coach of the week after the win. In addition to beating Atlanta United 4-2, his Nashville side have taken eight points from their last four matches, scoring six and conceding four.

After ten matches, Nashville SC have 12 points, good for ninth place in the MLS Eastern Conference. Currently in line for a playoff berth, the expansion side will face conference-leading Columbus Crew SC on the road next weekend.
