Memphis, Tenn. – Memphis 901 FC dropped a 1-0 midweek matchup to Loudoun United FC on Wednesday night at AutoZone Park, moving to 16-7-3 on the season.
Loudoun used a 56th minute goal to inch past 901 FC and split the season series between the two clubs. Memphis outshot Loudoun 21-9 on the night, forcing eight saves from keeper Luis Zamudio on 17 shots in the Loudoun box.
