Auston Trusty's late goal lifts Union over Minnesota United

BOX SCORE 

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Auston Trusty scored in the 86th minute and the Philadelphia Union moved to the top of the Eastern Conference with a 3-2 victory over Minnesota United on Sunday.

Trusty beat defender Brent Kallman to Ilsinho's volley, made a deft stop and then beat goalkeeper Vito Mannone to the loose ball to drive home the winner.

It was the third time the Union (8-4-4s) took the lead and, this time, Minnesota (6-6-3) couldn't answer.

Kallman's foul on Sergio Santos led to Jamiro Monteiro's successful penalty kick in the 18th minute and came off a quick counter after Minnesota was denied three-times from point-blank range. Andre Blake made two saves before defender Jake Elliott got in front of Angelo Rodriguez's second shot. Just before halftime Haris Medunjanin bent a free kick around the Minnesota wall and into the top corner.

Hassani Dotson tied the game at 1 in the 28th minute and Kevin Molino tied it 2 in the 77th minute.

Monteiro's goal was his third, the other four were the first of the season.

Union can't hold lead, tie Rapids on rainy night

BOX SCORE 

CHESTER, Pa. — Jonathan Lewis volleyed home a goal in the 72nd minute and the Colorado Rapids tied the Philadelphia Union 1-1 on Wednesday night in a game delayed nearly an hour because of lightning in the area.

Colorado (2-9-3) got points in a third straight game following an 11-game winless start. Philadelphia (7-4-4) has only lost once in its last eight home games, staying within a point of Eastern Conference leader D.C. United.

Sergio Santos gave Philadelphia the lead in the 26th minute by running past the defense for Jamiro Monteiro's toe poke and rolling it past goalkeeper Clint Irwin.
