[NASL REWIND | Week 2] Corey Hertzog, who is on loan from MLS's Vancouver Whitecaps, scored 16 minutes into his FC Edmonton debut to lead the Eddies a 1-0 victory over the San Antonio Scorpions at Clarke Stadium in front of 1,745 spectators on Sunday.

“We kept the ball and played it simple, got the ball in the first half and defended really well,” said Hertzog.  “As long as we keep playing together, we have a chance of scoring more goals. We just want to score goals, win every game, get to the top of the league and get in the final.”

After finishing the spring campaign with a five-game winning streak, San Antonio sits in last place in the fall standings with two losses.

The New York Cosmos' first road match drew a capacity crowd of 7,032 at Al Lang Stadium, where the Tampa Bay Rowdies and Cosmos played to a 0-0 tie. The Atlanta Silverbacks received their spring championship trophy from NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson following their 1-1 draw with the Carolina RailHawks that left all four teams in a tie for first place with four points.
 
Tampa Bay keeper Diego Restrepo earned the Rowdies a share of the points, producing a point-blank save with his legs to deny Spanish midfielder Ayoze after 77 minutes.
 
"I'm very happy with the clean sheet," said Rowdies coach Ricky Hill.  "We scored seven goals last week. However, we didn't have enough opportunities in this game as far I was concerned."
 
-- In Atlanta, striker Pedro Mendes scored his fourth goal of the year to send the Silverbacks in ahead at halftime, but defender Kupono Low headed the RailHawks level for a share of the points after the break. The game drew 4,767 fans at Silverbacks Park.
 
-- The Fort Lauderdale Strikers are now without a win in seven games after their 3-1 loss to visiting Minnesota United FC, which halted a four-game losing streak with the victory. Minnesota got second-half goals from forwards Max Griffin and Pablo Campos as well as an own goal to win in front of 3,295 spectators at Lockhart Stadium.

    For all the Whitecap fans who thought Edmonton fans would be hard on Hertzog because of his goal against the Eddies in the Canadian Championships, Corey was given a warm welcome at introductions and was wildly cheered after his goal. Even when he drew a yellow card for his physical play, he still remained a fan favorite on the afternoon. If the remainder of Corey Hertzog's loan spell with FCE is like his first game, Eddie fans will be sorry to see him leave at the end of the season.
