    T&T midfielder Kevin Molino scored twice to lead Minnesota United to victory over FC Dallas in their MLS clash earlier tonight.

    The 30-year-old looking in fine form as he drove a shot into the bottom corner off the cross by Romain Metanire.

    His goal gave them a 2-0 lead in the 28th minute after Mason Toye’s 11th minute opener.

    Dallas pulled a goal back just before half time to go into the break at 2-1.

    A penalty was awarded to Minnesota in the 70th minute, which Molino stepped up and converted to net his 5th goal for the season.

    Dallas would score one more to make it 3-2 but Minnesota, playing with 10 men after a 82nd red card, hung on for the three points.

    Minnesota are tied on points at the top of the Western Conference after winning five of their 10 games so far this season.
