[NASL REWIND: Week 7] The New York Cosmos beat Minnesota United FC, 1-0, to take over first place in the NASL standings as the Carolina RailHawks and Tampa Bay Rowdies, who went into Saturday tied for first place with the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, played to a 2-2 draw.
 
Sebastian Guenzatti
, who grew up in Queens and recently returned from Uruguay, scored the decisive goal for the Cosmos after 76 minutes on a header off a cross from Hunter Freeman. The game drew 6,081 fans at Shuart Stadium.
 
"It was a beautiful cross and we got the win," said Guenzatti. "Before the game, we were one point away from the team in first place and we just have to keep winning and hopefully get to the top."
 
Carolina got a last-minute goal from Austin Da Luz to thank for preserving its unbeaten home record in 2013. The Rowdies trailed on a Ty Shipalanegoal for the RailHawks before Evans FrimpongandJay Needham struck in the space of two minutes for the visiting Rowdies.
