Centerhalf: Michael Parkhurst (captain), 6. Playing in shortsleeves (?!?!?), he threw himself on the ground many times to block shots.
Fullback: Greg Garza, 6. A solid, albeit quiet, game for the left fullback. Each of Atlanta United's goals happened so quickly neither fullback had a chance to get involved. He got into action with a nice chip to Jacob Peterson for the final goal.
Midfielder: Jeff Larentowicz, 5. His poor tackle in the first half resulted in a penalty kick and Minnesota United's first goal.
Midfielder: Julian Gressel, 6. His pass to Almiron on the second goal split Minnesota United's midfielders and defenders. Otherwise, a solid game for the rookie.
Midfielder: Hector Villalba, 6. More effective in this game than the previous. He notched his first assist on Martinez's third goal.
Midfielder: Miguel Almiron, 8. He was all over the field, scoring two goals and creating numerous chances.
Midfielder: Yamil Asad, 6. Had an assist and did the work necessary on the left side.
Striker: Josef Martinez, 9. His first hat trick and the first in team history.
Chris McCann, NR. Not enough time to make an impact.
Kenwyne Jones, NR. Not enough time to make an impact.
Jacob Peterson, 6. Scored on a headed goal in the extra time. Garza with the assist.
