[NASL REWIND: Week 10] The New York Cosmos opened up a seven-point lead at the top of the NASL with a 1-0 win at Minnesota United FC on Paulo Mendes' goal in the 53rd minute in front of 3,629 spectators on a rainy and cold Saturday evening at NSC Stadium.

The Cosmos held on for the win despite a flurry of Minnesota chances to extend their unbeaten streak to seven games.
 
"It was definitely a big win because we played against a very good team," said Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese. "They created many difficulties for us especially in the second half. Our team was very compact and we were able to pull out a very important win.  Overall, we beat a very good team today."
 
Goals either side of halftime from Martin Nunez and Bradlee Baladez gave the Fort Lauderdale Strikers a 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rowdies in front of a crowd of 3,612 at Lockhart Stadium.
 
"The first half was the best from this team of the season so far," said Strikers coach Gunter Kronsteiner. "We were very concentrated and there were a lot of chances we had to defend. Nobody expected that we could beat them."
 
The San Antonio Scorpions won their second straight home win as they edged the Atlanta Silverbacks, 1-0, on Polish striker Tomasz Zahorski's sixth goal of the fall campaign.
