Duluth FC earned a confident eighth win of the season on Saturday, June 17 as they beat Minnesota TwinStars FC 6-1. Duluth FC now have 24 points from eight games at the top of the North Conference table.
The win saw Duluth score four first-half goals from Felipe Santos, Liam Pritchard, Tom Akinola, and Conor Behan within 20 minutes. Santos made a rare start against the TwinStars and added to his two goals from the last game against LC Aris FC. Pritchard, Akinola, and Behan also did well with their starts, emphasizing Duluth’s depth.
A TwinStars penalty kick prevented the clean sheet, but Duluth looked clear and ahead of the opposition after 45 minutes.
Rory Doyle and Tyler Limmer scored second-half goals to extend the lead to 6-1. Limmer now has seven goals from nine games in all competitions for Duluth FC.
No goals followed that spree, but it was more than enough to ensure Duluth continued to be top of the North Conference. Duluth FC is on the road against Sioux Falls Thunder FC on June 21.
