[NASL: Week 5] After the fifth of the nine-week spring championship, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers and Minnesota United FC are tied for first place and only three points separate the top four teams after the New York Cosmos' 1-0 win over Minnesota on Monday night.

Midfielder Marcos Senna snapped the Cosmos' 294-minute scoreless drought when he scored in the 61st minute. Minnesota pressed hard in the last 25 minutes but couldn't get a ball past Cosmos keeper Jimmy Mauer, who recorded his third shutout in five games.
