[NASL] The North American Soccer League begins its first playoffs with two quarterfinal games in Florida on Saturday. No. 3 seed FC Tampa hosts the No. 6 seed NSC Minnesota Stars, and the No. 4 Ft. Lauderdale Strikers host No. 6 seed FC Edmonton.

FC Tampa-Bay-Minnesota 2-0
Minnesota-FC Tampa Bay 2-1
FC Tampa Bay-Minnesota 1-1

FT. LAUDERDALE-FC EDMONTON. The Strikers, who are making their first postseason appearance since 2006, went 6-2-2 over 10 games before falling to Tampa Bay in their season finale.

Season Series:
Ft. Lauderdale-FC Edmonton 1-2
Ft. Lauderdale-FC Edmonton 3-0
