[NASL REWIND: Week 9] NASL leading scorer Brian Shriver scored his sixth goal of the season to earn the Carolina RailHawks a 1-1 tie at the Fort Lauderdale Strikers.

The Strikers threatened to upset the RailHawks thanks to a first-half Scott Gordon goal, but Shriver equalized in the 81st minute.

"[In the] first half, we were very disappointing and we didn't play well," said RailHawks coach Colin Clarke. "The Strikers were a lot better than us and they wanted it more. In the second half, we came out so much better but it could have gone either way."

Carolina could have taken over first place from the idle Atlanta Silverbacks with a win, as could have Minnesota United, which fell, 2-0, at the San Antonio on goals by Blake Wagner and Honduran midfielder Walter Ramirez.

"It was an inspired performance from start to finish," said Scorpions coach Tim Hankinson. "We took a lot pressure in the second half but it is great how players just stepped up made key plays, good tackles and block shots.  It was great for our guys to rise to the occasion and get that 2-0 win as we needed it."

-- The Tampa Bay Rowdies, the third team with a shot at overtaking Atlanta, tied FC Edmonton, 0-0, on Sunday.

    Disappointed with the one-line comment on the Tampa Bay-Edmonton game. Just because it was 0-0 does not mean nothing happened. Despite going a man early in the second, FC Edmonton still performed well and even had its share of chances to win the game. In two consecutive games Edmonton has played 100 minutes down a man and only given up one penalty-kick goal. At 7 goals against FCE is the top defensive side in the league, if only they could score.
