Richard Menjivar and Tyler Gibson collaborated on the game’s only goal as Rayo OKC defeated Minnesota United, 1-0, as the Loons' chance for the Spring Season title slipped away.

During the first half at Miller Stadium, much of the action took place between the penalty areas. Neither team forced the other goalkeeper much concern, though a Minnesota (4W-2D-3L, 13 points) cross from Danny Cruz bounced dangerously near the goal line, while Robbie Findley and Richard Menjivar of Rayo OKC had open looks at goal that failed to trouble Minnesota's 'keeper Sammy Ndjock.

Menjivar continued to have a positive influence on the Rayo OKC (3-2-4, 11) attack, which led directly to the eventual game-winner in the 70th minute. With the ball on the left side of the penalty area, Menjivar wheeled and hit a cross to the unmarked Tyler Gibson on the other side of the area. Gibson’s first-time shot from about 10 yards out skipped inside the far post.
