[NASL REWIND: Week 12] David Proctor's goal in the 90th minute gave FC Edmonton a 1-1 tie with the New York Cosmos, putting their title celebrations on hold. The game drew 5,624 fans for the Cosmos' home finale at Hofstra’s Shuart Stadium in their first season in the NASL.

Italian Alessandro Noselli had scored off the bench for the second consecutive game to put the Cosmos ahead in the 78th minute.

The result extended the Cosmos' unbeaten streak to nine matches and left them with a five-point lead over Tampa Bay with two games to play. They finish at San Antonio and Atlanta, the 2013 spring campaign.

Saturday ...

The Rowdies, 1-0 winners over the San Antonio Scorpions on Saturday, are the only team still with a chance of catching the Cosmos for the NASL fall title.
 
The Fort Lauderdale Strikers beat Atlanta, 6-2, to eliminate the Silverbacks from the fall title race, though Atlanta will host NASL Soccer Bowl 2013 at Atlanta Silverbacks Park on Nov. 9. The result also eliminated the Scorpions and Carolina RailHawks, who had held out slim hopes of finishing as the second-best team over the course of both seasons if Atlanta won both titles.
 
The Rowdies kept their hopes alive thanks to a Luke Mulholland penalty kick.

Ivan Guerrero was the star of the Strikers' six-goal show as recorded four assists for Fort Lauderdale. Yaikel Pérez and FC Dallas loan player Bradlee Baladez scored two goals apiece while Martin Nunez and Carlos Salazar each chipped in with one.
 
An Enzo Martinez strike proved the difference between Carolina and Minnesota as the RailHawks won away from home for the first time in 2013 with a 1-0 win.
