[NASL REWIND: Week 3] The Carolina RailHawks moved into first place in the NASL standings with a 3-1 victory over the winless Fort Lauderdale Strikers. Floyd Franks and Brian Shriver scored from the penalty spot in the first half and Shriver added a second goal after the interval and Carolina erased an early deficit.

RailHawks coach Colin Clarke said the second-half performance was special. “We could have scored a couple more goals," he said, "but we will take 3-1."

-- The Atlanta Silverbacks for two goals from Pedro Mendes and Ruben Luna as it erased a 3-1 halftime deficit and beat the Tampa Bay Rowdies, 4-3. Luke Mulholland had two goals and assist for the Rowdies, who lost their first game of the season.

"I saw the warning signs in the first half and we didn’t deserve to be 3-1 up,” admitted Rowdies coach Ricky Hill.  “The disappointing thing was they scored goals from outside the box and we backed off and let them have shots."

-- Minnesota United FC drew the largest crowd of the evening -- 4,135 fans -- for its 2-0 win over FC Edmonton at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. Simone Bracalello gave Minnesota the lead with a disputed penalty and Lucas Rodriguez added an insurance goal.

“It was an important win for us,” said United coach Manny Lagos.  “I really was proud of the guys, finding different ways to create chances and win the game.  Our back four were outstanding today and didn’t let up.”
