MOST COMMENTED

[NASL: Week 2] On a night when four of the five games were played before sellout crowds, Minnesota United grabbed a last-second winner at Ottawa, and the New York Cosmos won at FC Edmonton to command the top spot in the NASL with two wins apiece.

For the second week in a row, expansion Indy Eleven drew a sellout crowd at Michael A. Carroll Stadium (10,421) and once again it had to settle for a 1-1 tie, this time with Tampa Bay.

The Ottawa Fury drew a sellout crowd of 3,457 at temporary home at Carleton University, where the expansion club will play until its permanent TD Place home is available for the fall season, but Christian Ramirez's goal in the seventh minute of stoppage time gave Minnesota a 2-1 win.

FC Edmonton sold out with a club-record crowd of 4,399 at Clarke Stadium for the visit of the New York Cosmos, who have now gone 13 consecutive games unbeaten thanks to their 1-0 win on a close-range back heel from Sebastian Guenzatti.

The Atlanta Silverbacks sold all 5,000 tickets available for their home opener but slumped to a 2-1 defeat to San Antonio. Greg Janicki and Shaun Saiko earned the Scorpions a 2-0 lead before Junior Sandoval pulled one back for Atlanta, now 0-2 this season under technical director Eric Wynalda.

Carolina extended its unbeaten streak at WakeMed Soccer Park to 17 games with a 4-1 win over over the Fort Lauderdale Strikers thanks to double strikes from Zack Schilawski and Enzo Martinez.
