MOST COMMENTED

[NASL REWIND: Week 1] A new era in the North American Soccer League began Saturday as the New York Cosmos beat the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, 2-1, before a sellout crowd of 11,929 at Shuart Stadium.

Italian sub Alessandro Noselliscored in the second minute of stoppage time to give the Cosmos the victory. Peri Marosevic had given the Cosmos in front in the 44th minute, but Walter Restrepo equalized for the Strikers in the 73rd minute.

"He's a striker, a player who we know what he's capable of," Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese said of Noselli, who played for NYC Italy in the Cosmos Copa this summer. "He scored in Italy for many years. He was very smart reading the play and being able to put it in dramatically at the end."

The return of the Cosmos overshadowed a wild match on the opening day of the fall season in San Antonio, where the Tampa Bay Rowdies came back from 3-0 down after 18 minutes to win, 7-4.

Hans Denissen
scored twice in the first 16 minutes and Pole Tomasz Zahorski added the first of two goals in his debut two minutes later, but the Rowdies responded with four unanswered goals, taking a 4-3 lead on Amanai Walker's goal in the 45th minute. Georgi Hristov scored two second-half goals and Etienne Barbara also added an second-half goal in his debut for the Rowdies.

-- The spring champion Atlanta Silverbacks won, 1-0, at Minnesota United thanks to a goal by defender Mike Randolph off a corner in the 22nd minute. Carolina also won, 1-0, beating FC Edmonton in a match delayed two hours because of bad weather and another 20 minutes because of a power outage.
