Was the game last Saturday Minnesota United’s most dominating performance? No, definitely not on defense. The offense had some great goals, but the defense let up some equally awful goals. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter because Minnesota has punched their ticket to the post season. It’ll be interesting to see how Manny Lagos reacts to having less to play for in the second half.
Player of the Match
Miguel Ibarra was the player of the match, with an excellent goal, and disruptive runs in the attacking third. I’ll go back through and figure out how many times he has won the player of the match when I do my Spring Season Loon Rankings summary.
Defender of the Match
Justin Davis had some great runs in on goal, including an excellent goal, so it’s no surprise that Justin Davis was the fan defender of the match. On top of that, he wasn’t necessarily directly to blame for the goals, so in a game where the defense was poor, he definitely was a bright spot.
I included a couple of additional questions for the fans. The answers are below.
I think I agree. I’ll be taking the bus down to KC to see this game. Hopefully Minnesota represents themselves well.
Ramirez by a landslide. I just want to say that I called it back before the season started.
