Atlanta United’s showing against their expansion counterpart was nothing less than stellar. The frenzy of goals, the hat-trick, and the snow made this game fun to follow via Twitter. Here are some reactions from the match:

Not sure if it’s for the weather or the goals, but we’ll definitely take it.
4-1 ATLUTD. That was a nasty kick by #10Almiron. #MINvATL #UniteAndConquer— Duane Pitt (@DuaneCPitt) March 12, 2017

I laughed a bit too hard at this one, to be honest.
This is basically a hockey game. Do we still throw our hats on the rink if there's a hat trick? #ATLUTD #MINvATL #UniteAndConquer ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️— Atlantan Knight (@ATLknight7) March 12, 2017
Well deserved. Quite a while since a team in Atlanta had a hat-trick to celebrate.
Why are our goal celebrations not snow angels? #ATLUTD #UniteAndConquer— Jessica Newland (@jessicanewland7) March 12, 2017
If we are looking for a disappointment from this match, the lack of snow angels was it.
Let's get some snow machines at Bobby Dodd for @ATLUTD— Matt Waldrep (@mattsonfirst) March 12, 2017
Scoring 6 goals, breaking records? Why not?
@ATLUTD The first win is the best feeling. Won't be the last congrats fam! #UniteandConquer— Atlanta Blaze (@AtlantaBlaze) March 12, 2017
This @ATLUTD team is legit. The rest of MLS better watch out. ⚽️ #SoccerSunday— Nicole (@ndranee) March 12, 2017
First W. First 3 points. #UniteAndConquer— bartolo colón szn (@hashim_cole) March 12, 2017
This match could not have been summed up better. It was a great way to end the week and a fantastic way to gain the first 3 points in the franchise’s inaugural season. Hopefully there will be plenty in the near future.
