The Minnesota United can take a deep breath now that they've found the win column for the first time as a Major League Soccer team.

Kevin Molino got the Minnesota United on the board with a gorgeous header and he later assisted on two more goals to lead the Loons over Real Salt Lake 4-2 in front of more than 17,000 fans Saturday night at TCF Bank Stadium.

One of Molino's assists came on one of Christian Ramirez's two goals. You can see Molino's header and Ramirez's goals in the quick videos below.

The United improves to 1-3-1 while Real Salt Lake, which fired its coach earlier in the week, falls to 0-3-1.
