[NASL REWIND: Week 7]  The Tampa Bay Rowdies moved into a tie for first place with the Carolina RailHawks thanks to their 3-2 win with a last-minute strike by Keith Savage in a rematch of last season's Soccer Bowl.

Michael Reed's first pro goal and Simone Bracalello's strike 10 minutes later for Minnesota had canceled out goals from Shane Hill and Luke Mulholland in an open game.
 
"I'm really delighted to come to Minnesota and get all three points and I think on the balance of play they will be disappointed, but I was delighted with my team's resolve throughout the game," said Rowdies coach Ricky Hill. "At 2-2, we still pushed for what turned out to be the winner."

-- The RailHawks fell for the first time this season when they lost at Atlanta, 2-0. Forward Ruben Luna and defender Martyn Lancaster scored for the Silverbacks, who moved into third place with the win. Carolina played a man short after Floyd Franks was shown a red card eight minutes after halftime for a challenge on Silverbacks midfielder Danny Barrera.

“I didn’t care how we got it,” said Silverbacks coach Brian Haynes. “We needed to get back on a winning streak and we did that tonight.  We’ve worked hard and I’m proud of the boys.”

-- San Antonio won for the first time this season with a 3-1 victory over the Fort Lauderdale Strikers to climb out of the basement. Javier Saavedra scored after only a minute. Luka Vucko and Edin Husic added goal for the Scorpions in the second half, while Scott Gordon had the lone goal for the Strikers.
 
"We felt if we opened up the game we would have more chances on goal," said Scorpions coach Tim Hankinson. "We're starting to learn a little bit more about ourselves."
