[NASL REWIND: Week 14] Guatemalan Henry Lopez scored the lone goal to give the New York Cosmos a 1-0 win over the Atlanta Silverbacks in a preview of Saturday's NASL Soccer Bowl 2013. The Cosmos, winners of the fall title, will be back at Atlanta Silverbacks Park against the Silverbacks, winners of the spring title but seventh in the fall campaign 15 points behind the Cosmos.

Lopez received a cross from Satoru Kashiwase and let the ball bounce before firing it past Atlanta goalkeeper Cody Mizell from 14 yards out in the 34th minute for the Cosmos, who will take an unbeaten streak of 12 matches into the league championship (kickoff: 7:30 p.m ET, ESPN3 and ESPN Deportes).
 
"The good thing was that we kept the lead," said Cosmos assistant coach Carlos Llamosa. "For us, we count one game at a time and it is a good way to finish the fall season this way, winning away against the Spring champions. Every game is important and now the game is over we have to start on Monday to prepare for the next game."

Despite the loss, Silverbacks coach Brian Haynes had a positive view of his team's performance.

"We had our chances, three clear cut chances, to score and we didn't put them away," he said. "They had one shot on goal and it was a cross that made its way to where it was meant to. But I can't fault the effort tonight and there is nothing that is going to concern me for next week."
 
Carolina RailHawks striker Brian Shriver converted a penalty kick and then scored the winning goal to defeat the San Antonio Scorpions 2-1 at WakeMed Soccer Park. The goals ensured Shriver win the NASL Golden Boot with 15 goals.
 
Tampa Bay opened the season with a 7-4 and finished with a 6-4 loss. United midfielder Omar Daley scored a hat trick and Pablo Campos scored two goals to take second place in scoring race with 13. The Brazilian won the 2012 Golden Boot with 20 goals for San Antonio.

    The Railhawks also earned some hardware last night. In addition to Shriver's Golden Boot, the Railhawks won the Woosnam Cup. This trophy is awarded to the team with the most points (best record) in the Fall & Spring seasons. The Silverbacks have no business playing for the championship. Sure they finished 1st halfway through but 7th the second half of the season. I understand the new agreed upon format but disagree with it. The Railhawks are the best team in the NASL from beginning to end in 2013.
