The Minnesota United suffered a devastating 3-1 loss on Sunday against the Colorado Rapids. The Loons took the lead in the 8th minute after a Adrien Hunou goal from the Franco Fragapane assist. Still up 1-0 in the 57th minute, the United went a man up after a Last Man foul on the Rapids. That’s when the game fell apart. The Rapids scored three straight goals in 20 minutes, starting with a penalty kick goal awarded after video review after GK Tyler Miller dove for a rebound in the 70th minute. Another quick goal in the 84th minute put the United down 2-1, and a third goal in extra time sealed it. The Minnesota United are now fighting to hang onto the last playoff spot in the Western Conference with six games left in the regular season.
Their next game is Saturday at Austin FC, and they return home a week from Wednesday against Philadelphia.
