SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Duluth FC answered last in a see-saw battle in NPSL North play, defeating Sioux Falls Thunder 3-2 on an 86th minute goal from Paul Bobai.

The win marks the BlueGreens' sixth from seven games over the course of the first half of the season.

Peter Oyetunji put Duluth FC ahead just after halftime, only for the hosts to equalize nine minutes later. Kostya Domaratskyy then put the BlueGreens in front in the 58th minute, only for Sioux Falls to tie it again with seven minutes remaining in normal time. Bobai then struck three minutes later to put Duluth FC up for good.

The 6-1 BlueGreens trail only Med City FC, who they have not yet played, in the standings at the halfway point of their regular season. Duluth FC's next home match is June 18 vs. Dakota Fusion at Public Schools Stadium.
