The Loons took down of the Toffees on Wednesday night and sent Everton FC back across the pond in less than tip top condition. Minnesota United not only kept up with a Premier League team, but shut them out in glorious fashion. None other than Emanuel Reynoso opened up the scoring for the night with a converted PK in the 18th minute. The Loons simply outplayed and outclassed the Toffees, leading to a final score of 4-0. Apart from Rey, two other players notched a goal against the Liverpool team: Luis Amarilla and Abu Danladi. Kemar Lawrence can technically claim an assist, with one of his quick crosses resulting in an own goal by an Everton defender. Everton wasn't able to answer, and MNUFC emerged victorious, celebrating at Allianz field with a hoard of fans singing “Wonderwall.” Next up, MNUFC will finish off what has been a busy two week stretch on Saturday night, with a game down in Houston Texas. Despite the busy schedule, the Loons have had more than enough in the tank to extend their unbeaten streak to five league games. On the other hand, the Houston Dynamo have had a mixed set of recent results with a record of 1-3-1 in their last five games. However, the Dynamo have had a much less congested schedule and will have the home field advantage, setting them up with fresher legs. In order for the fourth place Loons to keep the eleventh place Houston at bay, MNUFC will need to make the most of their down time in the next few days. Apart from rest, Minnesota United has ample momentum built up and could use it to finish off their fourth game in ten days with a win.
