0516nasl week 6 [NASL: Week 7] Minnesota United missed an opportunity to extend its lead in the race for the spring season championship when it had to settle for a 0-0 tie with the Carolina RailHawks in a match that saw it finish with nine players after a pair of straight red cards to Cristiano Dias and Omar Daley in the last three minutes. The last home match of the spring campaign drew a record crowd of 6,784 at the National Sports Center Stadium.

"We didn't take the opportunities that we should," said Minnesota coach Manny Lagos. "We've got to regroup. We need to be prepared for two tough road games to close the season out."

The New York Cosmos were held to a 1-1 draw by last-place Indy Eleven and remain three points behind with two games to play. Sebastian Guenzatti put the Cosmos in front with only four minutes played, but midfielder Brad Ring equalized inside the final 15 minutes at Hofstra University.

The San Antonio Scorpions climbed to third place behind Cosmos only on goal difference thanks to a stoppage-time goal by Tomasz Zahorski in a 3-2 come-from-behind win over the Ottawa Fury, ts third win on the road in three games.
A wild last half hour saw San Antonio go ahead on a Greg Janicki goal, the Fury hit back with goals from Tony Donatelli from the penalty spot and Sinisa Ubiparipovic, and Eric Hassli equalize with a penalty before Zahorski's dramatic winner four minutes into stoppage time.
"We're 3-0 on the road, that's great to say," San Antonio coach Alen Marcina.  "We battled hard today, and we needed three points today to stay in the top three.  The guys played very hard and showed character. We're very happy."

Second-half goals from defenders Willie Hunt and Blake Wagner and midfielder Anthony Wallace gave the host Tampa Bay Rowdies a 3-2 come-from-behind victory to dent the title hopes of the shorthanded Fort Lauderdale Strikers.
Late goals by Horace James and Kwadwo Poku stole three points from FC Edmonton for the Atlanta Silverbacks, capping a 2-1 triumph on the road.
