[NASL REWIND: Week 8] Goals from Montreal Impact loan player Calum Mallace and Simone Bracalello on either side of halftime gave Minnesota United FC a 2-1 win at FC Edmonton that pushed it up three places behind the third-place Carolina RailHawks on goal difference. Daryl Fordyce claimed a consolation goal with virtually the last kick of the game for FC Edmonton, whose run of five consecutive 1-1 draws against five different opponents was snapped.

"On the day, they were a better side than us," FC Edmonton coach Colin Miller said after the game. "They had a little more quality and the second goal took the heart right out of us."

Saturday ...

Venezuelan striker Diomar Diaz struck twice in the first half to lead the first-place New York Cosmos to a 2-1 win over the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in front of 7,653 fans at Lockhart Stadium for their first win on the road.

The victory sets up a clash between the Cosmos and second-placed Tampa Bay Rowdies on Sept. 29. Two goals from forward Georgi Hristov and one from midfielder Shane Hill lifted the Rowdies to a 3-1 win over the Atlanta Silverbacks. They remain unbeaten in eight games in the fall season and 10 games over all.
 
A stoppage-time penalty kick from Hans Denissen secured the first San Antonio Scorpions win of the fall campaign, a 2-1 win over the Carolina RailHawks.
