Kevin Molino follows up a bitter-sweet run of performances over the International Break with his 4th assist of the season against the Portland Timbers on Thursday.

After receiving the ball, Molino beats the defender, Alvas Powell, going right, sees Christian Ramirez alongside the last defender, and delivers it to the striker, beating the offside trap and has him in prime real estate with nobody around him. Ramirez had time to stop the ball on his right foot, have it rise up and flicking it into the goal on the same foot, beating Portland Timbers keeper Jeff Attinella.

Molino impacted the game earlier in the first half when his headed attempt from a corner forced Attinella to force it over the bar.

Just a few minutes later he had a “hockey assist” to this own goal

Molino now has 4 assists to go along with 5 goals in his first season with Minnesota United, who are sitting 9th in the Western Conference but 3 points out of the final playoff spot. The Loons next game is against the Vancouver Whitecaps today at 8:00 pm.
