RailHawks lose tight battle in Minnesota

Posted July 17, 2014

Numerous second-half chances for the Carolina RailHawks (0W-0T-2L, 0pts) weren’t enough to propel them to a victory over the NASL Spring Season Champions, Minnesota United FC (2W-0T-0L, 6pts), as they dropped Thursday night’s away match 1-0.

Both teams had their chances in the first half, but it was Minnesota's Daniel Mendes who scored in the 26th minute. Carolina followed the goal by pushing forward, but they weren't able find the back of the net.

The RailHawks had numerous unfinished chances in the second half, none greater than Tiyi Shipalane's one-on-one breakaway opportunity and close-range shot that went off the post.

The RailHawks return to NASL Action on Wednesday when they travel to Texas to face the San Antonio Scorpions at 8:30pm.
