[NASL REWIND: Week 8] Substitute goalkeeper John Smits saved a penalty kick from Stefan Dimitrov that was awarded as starting keeper Lance Parker received a red card, but Smits couldn't stop a later one by Carlos Salazar as the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers won their first game on the road this season with a 1-0 victory at FC Edmonton.
The Strikers climbed out of the cellar with the win in Sunday's only game.

Midfielder Danny Barrera broke a scoreless draw in the 85th minute goal to give the Atlanta Silverbacks a 1-0 win over the San Antonio Silverbacks that moved them into first place. Minnesota United avenged a 3-2 loss at home to the Tampa Bay Rowdies last week in their 2012 Soccer Bowl rematch with a win by the same score at Al Lang Stadium in a match that saw all five goals scored in the first 29 minutes.
Substitute forward Kellen Gulley fired a shot off a Scorpions defender, and the ball fell right to Barrera, who beat keeper Pat Hannigan to give Atlanta the win in front of 4,422 home fans. It's the first time the Silverbacks have been in the first place.
"To get a win from that game is fantastic," said Silverbacks coach Brian Haynes. "It's the kind of game that can get bad if you make a defensive mistake and we got the win and I'm proud and happy for them.  Good teams win ugly games and we just did that tonight." 
-- Minnesota United avenged a 3-2 loss at home to the Tampa Bay Rowdies last week in their 2012 Soccer Bowl rematch with a 3-2 win at Al Lang Stadium.

Defender Cristiano Dias opened the scoring for Minnesota, and Pablo Campos set up Geison Moura and Simone Bracalello for goals. Bulgarian Georgi Hristov scored both goals for the Rowdies in a match that saw all five goals scored in the first 29 minutes.
"What a great series," said United coach Manny Lagos. "To have 10 goals in two games, it was great and obviously we're delighted that tonight we came out on top. It was really important for us to come out and play hard and play strong. Both teams battled and I was really proud of the guys to see the game out."
