MLS on Loan: Dwyer Leading The Way

You want quality minutes for your young players? Well for several MLS clubs the loans to the USL-Pro sides are starting to pay off in a positive way.

Over the last week three players found the back of the net during their loan spells with one player doing it in multiple games. Sporting KC forward Dom Dwyer scored three goals this past week for Orlando City SC.

Dwyer is now atop the USL PRO’s golden boot race with five goals scored in six games played. I’d say that is a good thing.
