Minnesota United FC beats Colorado 1-0 thanks to Quintero goal

After a loss on Saturday snapped their seven-game unbeaten run, Minnesota United FC kicked off a new streak on Wednesday. The Loons beat the Colorado Rapids 1-0 at Allianz Field, behind a Darwin Quintero goal.

Quintero's night didn't come without adversity. The Colombian stepped up to take a penalty, after Danny Wilson brought down Chase Gasper off the ball, but his clipped spot-kick was saved by Clint Irwin. Less than two minutes later, Quintero made amends.


Running onto a beautiful through ball from Kevin Molino, Quintero found himself 1v1 with Irwin again. He'd make no mistakes this time, slotting his shot under an on-rushing Irwin. It was all the Loons would need.

Adu Danladi nearly added Minnesota an insurance goal late on, but his driving header flicked off the crossbar. Ike Opara, too, had a close-range header saved.
