Rochester FC put itself in good position to come away with its first win on Saturday in United Premier Soccer League play. But it had trouble converting its offensive chances and lost 3-1 to Minneapolis City at Rochester Regional Stadium.

Matheus Alburquerque had the home team’s lone goal.The loss dropped Rochester FC to 0-1-4.

“We had more (offensive) chances than Minneapolis City, but we weren’t as clinical as they were in front of the goal,” Rochester FC player Midhat Mujic said. “If we could have capitalized on our chances both in the first and second halves, it would have been a different outcome.”

Rochester FC hosts Granite City FC at 7 p.m. on June 5.
