Trusty scores late goal, lifts Union past Minnesota 3-2

June 02, 2019 07:00 PM

Auston Trusty scored in 86th minute and the Philadelphia Union moved to the top of the Eastern Conference with a 3-2 victory over Minnesota United on Sunday.
    
Trusty beat defender Brent Kallman to Ilsinho's volley, made a deft stop and then beat goalkeeper Vito Mannone to the loose ball to drive home the winner.
    
It was the third time the Union (8-4-4s) took the lead and, this time, Minnesota (6-6-3) couldn't answer.
    
Kallman's foul on Sergio Santos led to Jamiro Monteiro's successful penalty kick in the 18th minute and came off a quick counter after Minnesota was denied three-times from point-blank range. Andre Blake made two saves before defender Jake Elliott got in front of Angelo Rodriguez's second shot. Just before halftime Haris Medunjanin bent a free kick around the Minnesota wall and into the top corner.
    
Hassani Dotson tied the game at 1 in the 28th minute and Kevin Molino tied it 2 in the 77th minute.
    
Monteiro's goal was his third, the other four were the first of the season.
