[NASL: Week 3] Eric Hassli's goal ended the New York Cosmos record shutout streak at 372 minutes and gave the San Antonio Scorpions a 1-0 win at the defending champions. The loss was the first for the Cosmos in their last 15 games dating back to last season and left Minnesota United FC as the only unbeaten and untied team in the NASL.

A Simone Bracalello penalty after 70 minutes proved the difference as Minnesota edged last-place FC Edmonton, 1-0, in the Loons' home opener at the National Sports Center.
 
"I don't think we created as many chances as we'd like but the guys put in a great shift, we kept a clean sheet at home and we got the win," said Minnesota coach Manny Lagos.

San Antonio joined New York, Fort Lauderdale, a 3-2 winner over winless Indy Eleven, in second place with six points.

"The guys executed the plan with discipline and precision to earn a well deserved win on the road against a tough opponent," said Scorpions coach Alen Marcina. "We'll look to continue improving and growing as a team, and it'll be fantastic to play in front of our home crowd for this upcoming stretch."

A hat trick from Brazilian forward Oliver Minatel paced the Ottawa Fury to a 4-0 victory over Carolina RailHawks for its first-ever victory in the NASL.
 
"Carolina is a team that we respect a lot," said Ottawa manager Marc Dos Santos said, "but today we came in very focused. We knew exactly what we wanted from the game, and I thought that we responded very well.  Our possession was excellent."
