Game Central

The Twosies followed the first team in a double header at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Saturday night. An action-packed game saw multiple penalties and a hat trick from MNUFC2 forward Tommy Williamson. At the final whistle, the teams were locked at 3 goals apiece, forcing a shootout. Unfortunately, the Loons fell just short in said shootout, 4-5. Next up, MNUFC2 will return home to play the Tacoma Defiance. The two teams have only met once in Washington, where the Loons narrowly lost a tight 3-2 game. Luckily, the Twosies will be back at the National Sports Center and have the rest of this week to recover from their trip to Colorado. With the season winding down, every point up for grabs is crucial and the Twosies will need to dig deep to take down the top ranked Tacoma Defiance.
