[NASL: Fall Week 8] FC Edmonton ended Minnesota United FC's 11-game unbeaten streak with a 2-1 win Sunday afternoon at Clarke Stadium. Chad Burt broke the scoreless deadlock in the 65th minute with a flick past United keeper Mitch Hildebrandt and five minutes later, Lance Laing scored his fourth goal in his last four games for the Eddies.

With 10 minutes to play, United midfielder Daniel Mendes pulled one back with a stunning free kick from just outside the penalty area.

NASL: Strikers and Rowdies pick up important wins
 
"We're very pleased with the win because today we were playing against the spring season champions, who are well organized, well coached, and well prepared," said FC Edmonton coach Colin Miller. "I told the guys that I don't care how we win. I just want the three points. Today, we made it difficult for ourselves in the first half, but in the second half, we were more competitive and looked more dangerous."
