Minnesota United dealt first loss at Allianz Field

They fell to the Philadelphia Union 3-2

After 6 games unbeaten at their new home, Minnesota United finally fell at Allianz Field.

A late goal from Auston Trusty gave the Philadelphia Union a barely deserved victory over the Loons, who registered 29 shots on goal to Philly's 14.

Trusty struck in the 86th minute, after United had twice come back from 1-0 and 2-1 down to tie things up.

Kevin Molino had equalized in the 77th minute, creating a grandstand finish in front of yet another sellout crowd.

Earlier, Hassani Dotson's unerring half-volley had seen United strike back after conceding an 18th minute penalty that gave the Union the lead.

In fairness to the Loons, the Union have been flying this season, currently sitting atop the Eastern Conference.

But United will be disappointed not to come away with any points, with strikers Angelo Rodriguez and Darwin Quintero both having good chances to get on the scoresheet.

Minnesota is 6th in the Western Conference with 6 wins, 6 defeats and 3 draws.

They are in the playoff spots as things stand, three points ahead of 8th placed San Jose.
