[NASL: Fall Week 5] The San Antonio Scorpions and Minnesota United FC, first and second in the NASL fall standings, continued their winning ways with wins over FC Edmonton and Indy Eleven, respectively, on a Saturday slate of games that averaged four goals.
 
The first-place Scorpions beat Indy, 2-0, in front of 7,847 fans at Toyota Field and ran their unbeaten run at home to six games. Goals from Tomasz Zahorski and Julius James were all San Antonio needed, even though they played with 10 men for the final 34 minutes. 
 
"We wanted to dictate the tempo of the game and my guys are fighters so hopefully that sends a message to the rest of the league," said Scorpions coach Alen Marcina. "We will keep building on this performance and our past performances and we've been playing real well."

Two goals by midfielder Daniel Mendes in the second half followed an early goal by forward Christian Ramirez, his league-leading 10th of the season, as Minnesota beat visiting FC Edmonton, 3-2.
 
"There were some great moments in the second half with some great goals to see the game out," said Minnesota coach Manny Lagos. "I was proud how we changed the way we started the second half compared to the first. I think that was the difference in the game."

Torrential rain and lighting in Atlanta caused a significant weather delay, and the Silverbacks' game against Atlanta didn't end until after 1 a.m with a 2-1 win for the visiting New York Cosmos, who jumped from ninth to fourth in the fall standings.

The Tampa Bay Rowdies ended their two-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the host Carolina RailHawks in front of 3,140 spectators at WakeMed Soccer Park. Darel Russell's goal in the 84th minute was the game-winner.

Goals from Darnell King and Fafa Picault led the Fort Lauderdale Strikers to a 2-1 victory at Ottawa that moved them to fourth place in the combined standings behind spring champion Minnesota, San Antonio and New York.
