Goals from Kevin Molino and Christian Ramirez actually had Minnesota in the lead, but Marlon Hairston's response just a minute after Ramirez's goal was enough to see the clubs split the points. 

A red card to Justin Davis in the 70th minute hampered any chance of a late winner for Minnesota, but the result will be one to remember for United fans.
