Loons continue to struggle at home, falling 1-0 to Kansas City

Minnesota United squandered another home match on Saturday.

The Loons new, young left back Ethan Bristow was badly beat by Sporting Kansas City attacker Gadi Kinda for a goal in the 84th minute. Bristow was sorely out of position, forced teammate Bakaye Dibassy to cover for him, but Kinda made the most of the space and slotted home a goal past Dayne St. Clair.

The Loons (9-9-11, 38 points) had their seven-match unbeaten streak snapped by Sporting Kansas City (9-12-9, 36 points) in a 1-0 loss.

MNUFC has only three wins in 14 matches in St. Paul this season.

Sang Bin Joeng had a chance for an equalizer in the 95th minute, but his attempt went wide. Michael Boxall appeared to scored on a header in 79th minute, but was ruled offside. Teemu Pukki had a great scoring chance in the 74th minute, but Tim Melia made the save.

The Loons started Dibassy at center back with Micky Tapias suffering a thigh injury during the week. Loons manager Adrian Heath said early this week he is not interested in playing Dibassy at left back over Bristow, an Englishman has had a tough time adjusting to MLS.
