Adam Taggart has scored again for Suwon Bluewings, netting the opening goal in Sunday night’s 2-0 win over Jeju in the K-League.
The Caltex Socceroos striker – who scored and played 120 minutes for the Bluewings in last Wednesday night’s Korean FA Cup win - fired in the ninth minute to tee up the club’s first league win in six matches.
Taggart has now scored nine goals in 19 outings for the K-League club after securing a move Hyundai A-League outfit Brisbane Roar in February 2019.
The 26-year-old has also contributed two assists in that time. Suwon, coached by Lee Lim-saeng, are seventh in the K-League – two points shy of Sangju Sangmu, who occupy sixth place and the final championship round playoff position.
For the second time in a week, Brad Smith’s Seattle Sounders scored deep in stoppage time to secure all three points in the Major League Soccer.
In Sunday morning’s 2-1 win over Columbus Crew, Uruguayan World Cup attacker Nicolas Lodeiro was the hero, heading in a 96th minute match-winner.
Smith – who is on loan at the Pacific north-west side from Premier League team Bournemouth – played 90 minutes of the clash from left back. He’s been involved in 16 of the Sounders’ 19 MLS fixtures this season, tallying four assists.
The Sounders are third in the MLS Western Conference.
Meanwhile, in the J-League, Mitch Langerak played 90 minutes in Nagoya Grampus’ 2-0 defeat to Shonan Bellmare on Sunday night.
Despite out-shooting their opponents 26 to 8, Nagoya were unable to make the breakthrough, and it has been nearly two months since the club's last league win, which was a 2-0 triumph over Andrew Nabbout’s Urawa Red Diamonds on May 12.
Nabbout’s side beat Vegalta Sendai 1-0 on Saturday night, although the Australian forward did not play.
