[NASL REWIND: Week 4] Minnesota United FC and the Tampa Bay Rowdies joined the idle Carolina RailHawks in a tie for first place with wins on the road. Their wins over the San Antonio Scorpions and Ft. Lauderdale Strikers left the Scorpions and Strikers winless.

The Atlanta Silverbacks fell for the first time this season, blowing 1-0 and 2-1 leads before falling to Minnesota, 3-2. Midfielder Milton Blanco scored on a free kick and Ruben Luna scored on a penalty kick for Atlanta, but Minnesota answered each time with goals from Brian Kallman and Simone Bracallelo, also from the penalty spot. Aaron Pitchkolan then scored off a scramble in the Silverbacks' area to give Minnesota the win.

-- FC Edmonton claimed its first win of the spring season, edging the San Antonio Scorpions, 1-0, on Shaun Saiko's penalty in the dying seconds of the first half in the team's opening home game in front of a crowd of just 1,026 at Clarke Stadium.

-- Goals from from midfielders Luke Mulholland and Alex Dixon the Rowdies a 2-1 victory over their in-state rival Ft. Lauderdale Strikers on Saturday night. The Strikers slashed the lead to just one goal on a late goal by midfielder Walter Restrepo.
