Despite going up a man in the 21st minute, Minnesota United could not come all the way back from an early own goal to claim victory against the San Jose Earthquakes on Tuesday night. Wil Trapp scored his first goal as a Loon to pull them level in the 22nd minute, but MNUFC had to settle for splitting the points. Now Minnesota prepares to welcome Western Conference leaders Sporting KC to Allianz Field for the next chapter of the Nicest Rivalry in Sports. When last they met, it was in the Western Conference Semifinals of 2020, and the Loons hung three goals on SKC at Children’s Mercy Park to give them their first away win of the all-time series. Minnesota’s sizable injury list is unlikely to see much improvement before the weekend, so once again it will be up to whoever’s ambulatory to get out there and give it their all.
