Med City FC took its longest trip of the season on Saturday, traveling five and a half hours to Fargo-Moorhead to take on Dakota Fusion FC. The Mayhem made the most of the trip, grabbing three early goals on the way to a 4-0 victory.
Med City FC scored their first goal in just the second minute. Peter Lange-Nielson swept in a Lucas Hart cross past the Fusion goalkeeper and into the net.
The two would be involved in the second goal, as well, just five minutes later, as Lange-Nielson got tripped up in the box and Hart stepped up to bury the spot kick for a 2-0 lead.
Hart, who was named Man of the Match, would add a second goal in the 25th minute as his goalward free kick found the net after taking a deflection off a Fusion defender. That gave the Mayhem a 3-0 lead going into halftime.
Less than ten minutes into the second half, Dakota Fusion found themselves down a man, as defender Huseyin Celik picked up a red card for his second cardable offense of the match.
Substitute Mazeed Aro-Lambo scored his second goal in two games in the 64th minute, with midfielder Kolton Prater slipping a slick through ball into his path. Aro-Lambo made no mistake and his deft touch evaded the Fusion keeper.
The Mayhem cycled through its bench over the last 15 minutes, with several players getting their first NPSL minutes. The score held and Med City FC ran out 4-0 winners.
The win moves the Mayhem to 2-0 in the conference while Dakota Fusion drops to 0-3. Med City FC is back in action at home on Friday night, May 28th as they welcome Joy SLP to Rochester.
