[NASL REWIND: Week 5] All three NASL games on Saturday ended in draws, leaving Carolina, Minnesota United FC and Tampa Bay tied for first place.

Making his debut for Carolina on loan from Real Salt Lake, Enzo Martinez scored on a 25-yard shot with six minutes left to give Carolina a 2-2 tie with Minnesota.

Jordan Graye's goal late in the first half gave Carolina the lead, but Etienne Barbara scored twice in the second half to stake Minnesota to a 2-1 lead before Martinez's equalizer.

-- Tampa Bay and FC Edmonton played to a 1-1 draw at Al Lang Stadium.

Bulgarian forward Georgi Hristov opened the scoring for the Rowdies in the 16th minute from the penalty spot, but midfielder Shaun Saiko equalized in the 35th minute for FC Edmonton.

-- After being shut out in their first three games, the San Antonio Scorpions broke out for two goals in the first half but had to settle for a 2-2 tie with the Atlanta Silverbacks.

Hans Denissen's goal off a cross from Mexican veteran Javier Saavedra ended the three-game scoring drought, and Edin Husic added a second goal, but Atlanta got goals from and Richie Menjivar and Pedro Mendes in a match that saw all four goals come in the first 30 minutes.

“If you’re a fan here tonight you got more than your money’s worth," said Scorpions coach Tim Hankinson. "We need to build on the confidence of scoring goals and make sure that becomes commonplace.”
