Senegalese dynamo lands in RailHawks' lap

Posted by on Mon, Nov 24, 2008 at 12:04 PM

Jarrett over at Trisoccerfan.com reports that one unintended consequence of the decision by the Atlanta Silverbacks to sit out the 2009 season is that the team's most valuable property, Macoumba "Mac" Kandji, is now contracted with the RailHawks—due to the small stake in the Cary team that is held by Silverbacks owner Boris Jerkunica.

  • Macoumba Kandji

Despite playing only 21 games, Kandji scored 11 goals, enough to finish fourth in the league. He was named to the All-USL first team. On Sept. 15, he was loaned to the New York Red Bulls of the MLS, and he was inserted into yesterday's MLS Cup final against the Columbus Crew, in the 82nd minute. The Crew won, 3-1, by the way.

None of this means Kandji will be playing in WakeMed Soccer Park next year. Jarrett explains the various scenarios at his indispensable fan site.

Triangle Offense's Chris Gaffney is in Tampa, attending the winter meeting of the USL. Look for his reports in the coming days.
