Bunbury’s bicycle kick goal earns Nashville 1-1 draw against Cincy | Ap Sports News

CINCINNATI (AP) — Teal Bunbury scored his first goal of the season on a short-range bicycle kick, Brandon Vazquez earned a 52nd-minute tying goal and Cincinnati played out a 1-1 draw against Nashville on Saturday evening.

Bunbury, who was making his first start since a right knee injury sidelined him between March 19 and July 3, scored in the sixth minute after a corner kick bounced off defenders and goalkeeper Roman Celentano.

Back to goal, Bunbury used his right foot to score his first goal since September 22 in New England.

Vazquez scored in the 52nd minute for Cincinnati (7-8-7). Alvaro Barreal got an assist on the goal.

Cincinnati outshot Nashville 16-9, shooting four to Nashville’s three.

Celentano saved two of three shots for Cincinnati. Joe Willis made three saves for Nashville.

Those teams return to the field on Saturday, with Cincinnati visiting Inter Miami while Nashville hosts the Vancouver Whitecaps.
