Orlando City SC 1, Minnesota United FC 2 | 2018 MLS Match Recap
Minnesota United FC rebounded from a tough loss to open the 2018 MLS regular season with a 2-1 road win over Orlando City SC on Saturday night at Orlando City Stadium.
It was the visitors who drew first blood, as a nifty pass from Kevin Molino broke through Orlando City's defense to find Ethan Finlay, with the American slotting the shot into the goal in the 12th minute. The lead held until a few minutes before halftime, as Richie Laryea drew a penalty from Finlay on the very edge of the box that underwent Video Review. Yoshi Yotun converted the spot kick to make it 1-1.
But as the game became more and more testy, it appeared the match may end in a stalemate. Finlay ensured that wouldn't happen, as substitutes Mason Toye and Miguel Ibarra connected to set up Finlay for his second goal of the night in the 79th minute.
