[NASL: Week 4] Minnesota United FC won its fourth game in a row with a 3-2 win over winless Indy Eleven, getting goals two minutes apart from Daniel Mendes and Christian Ramirez, both set up by Simone Bracalello, and a third goal from Miguel Ibarra right before the end of the first half.

Indy Eleven's lone goal in the first half came on a Bracalello own goal. Its second goal was scored by Brazilian World Cup champion Kleberson late in the game.

"I thought we played really well," said Minnesota coach Manny Lagos. "You can feel a bit bad about the goal at the end, but I think the guys should be really proud of what they've done, two wins at home and to start the season off 4-0 is great. I'm really proud of them, there shouldn't be a bad taste from this. The reality is they found a way to win again today."

-- Martin Nunez, Fafa Picault and Mark Anderson scored to give the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers a 3-1 win at FC Edmonton for their third win in four games and give them sole possession of second place.

-- The defending champion New York Cosmos was shut out for the second game in a row, falling at Carolina, 1-0.
