The Red Bulls announced Wednesday that the loan of Hertzog to the Wilmington Hammerheads has been extended for the remainder of the USL PRO season. The teams had agreed to a one-month loan for Hertzog on May 29.
Aug. 18 is when the Hammerheads play their final regular-season game, hosting the Charlotte Eagles, but at the rate Hertzog and the club are going there is a good chance the Hammerheads will reach the playoffs.
Since joining fourth-place Wilmington (5-4-4), Hertzog has recorded four goals and two assists in seven games.
The New York Red Bulls announced today that the current loan of forward Corey Hertzog to USL-PRO side Wilmington Hammerheads has been extended for the remainder of the USL-PRO season. The teams had initially agreed to a one month loan for the former Penn State University forward on May 29.
“Corey and the club discussed the possibility of extending his loan to the end of the year and we both agreed that it was in his best interest to stay with Wilmington to play more competitive matches,” Red Bulls general manager and sporting director Erik Soler said in a statement. “We wish him luck in Wilmington and we look forward to having him back once their season is over.”
Chosen by the Red Bulls in the first round (13th overall) of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft out of Penn State University, Hertzog has not made a first team appearance for the Red Bulls in 2012. Last season he played in five regular season games. Hertzog scored one goal in three MLS Reserve League appearances this year.
