The Halloween match against Sporting KC got off to a frightful start as Khiry Shelton scored early on for the visitors after only eight minutes. Minnesota United came back shortly after with a goal from Franco Fragapane in the 20th minute. Late in the first half Emanuel Reynoso was brought down in the penalty box and converted on the penalty kick with a panenka. The Loons held out to claim all three crucial points as they look to secure their spot in the playoffs.
With LA Galaxy and Vancouver only picking up one point from their games this week the Loons remain in fifth place.
