MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Miguel Ibarra scored in the 60th minute and 10-man Minnesota United held on for a 1-0 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday.

Minnesota’s Mason Toye elbowed Whitecaps defender Kendall Waston during a corner and was sent off in the 50th minute for violent conduct.

Ibarra followed his own saved attempt to give Minnesota (4-5-0) the lead 10 minutes later. That was all the Loons needed as goalkeeper Bobby Shuttlesworth made three big saves in the final 30 minutes to preserve the clean sheet.

Shuttlesworth finished with seven saves and Vancouver (4-5-1) outshot Minnesota 19-4, including two that went off the post.
