And that's game, the 45 minute second game ends with the score of 1-1. I'll have a full write up of both games either late tonight or tomorrow.

40th minute
- GOAL Minnesota get their first goal of the night from the penalty spot. Becker guesses right, but the penalty is well placed. 1-1

38th minute
- White makes a mistake on a long ball through and loses his man. Pardo comes off his line and takes out the player's foot as he dives for the ball, drawing a penalty and a red card for the keeper, so we'll get to see Chad Becker in goal.

13th minute
