[NASL: Week 9]Wins by the Carolina RailHawks, Minnesota United FC and Atlanta Silverbacks left two points separating the top five teams in the NASL heading in the Sunday showdown between the first-place New York Cosmos and unbeaten Tampa Bay Rowdies.
 
The RailHawks extended their unbeaten home record at WakeMed Soccer Park in competitive action in 2013 to 14 games with a 2-0 win over the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, who lost for the second consecutive week and fell to sixth place. Second-half goals from midfielder Breiner Ortizand forward Brian Ackley snapped Carolina's four-game winless streak in front of 4,215 spectators.
 
Striker Pablo Camposscored his ninth goal of the 2013 campaign as Minnesota United FC edged his former club the San Antonio Scorpions, 1-0, to keep it in the fall title race. "This is our first win at home this fall season," said United FC coach Manny Lagos. "It was a nice gutsy performance and we figured out how to get a win at home.  I was really proud of the guys in the second half."
 
The Silverbacks, already qualified for NASL Soccer Bowl 2013 having won the spring title, played for 53 minutes with only 10 men after league assists leader Danny Barrera was sent off, but they earned a 1-0 win over FC Edmonton on Pedro Mendes' 15th-minute kick in front of a packed house of 5,000 at Silverbacks Park.
