Scoring a goal one minute into the match would give Duluth FC the momentum they needed to earn a first round National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) playoff victory on Tuesday.

Following Kostya Domaratskyy’s early first half goal, the Bluegreens would tack on two more in the second to down FC Columbus 3-1 in the Midwest Region quarterfinals held at Public Schools Stadium.

Blake Perry and Keegan Chastey tallied the two second half goals.
