Rain-pner? It just doesn’t have the same ring as the sno-pener. You’d think most fans would much rather it be a few degrees cooler and snowy than be bombarded with rain, sleet and hail for a few hours. Nashville SC rained on the Loons’ home opener when they scored early. The Coyotes held the lead until halftime, but another break would come soon after in the second half. Thunderbolts put the game on hold for 70 minutes, but Dotson’s goal after the restart saved a point for Minnesota United.

Next up for Minnesota is a trip east to face the New York Red Bulls on Sunday night.
