Sporting Kansas City announced today that they'd loaned back up goalkeeper, Alec Kann to the Swope Park Rangers ahead of tonight's game between the Rangers and Rio Grande Valley Fc Toros at the Swope Soccer Complex at 7:30. Kann, who has one league appearance this year in KC's 1-1 draw against Vancouver, should get the start in goal tonight ahead of Rangers' goalkeepers Jon Kempin (also on loan from SKC) and Zac Lubin. The pair have split the Rangers 10 games so far this season with Kempin starting the first six, going 2-3-1 while Lubin has started the last four going 1-2-1. The move appears to be one to get Kann some game action ahead of next Wednesday's US Open Cup game between Sporting KC and Minnesota United. Peter Vermes has said with MLS on a break he would look to loan players to the Rangers to get them time ahead of the Open Cup game. For me I just didn't consider that Kann would be one of them. I figured KC would send someone like Connor Hallisey who has gotten limited minutes this season, or Amadou Dia who has found himself on the bench behind Jimmy Medranda.
