[NASL REWIND: Week 5]
Former Spain international Marcos Senna
's goal on a free kick earned the New York Cosmos a 1-1
tie at FC Edmonton to move them into third spot in the NASL standings, a point behind second-place Fort Lauderdale Strikers and two points behind leader Carolina. Four points separate the top seven
teams after five games.
Midfielder Chris Nurse
's third goal in as many games had earned FC Edmonton the second-half lead. Saturday ...
A coaching change couldn't change the horror show that has been the San Antonio Scorpions' fall season as they lost their fifth straight game
and second in a row in stoppage time, this time on the last touch of the game against visiting Minnesota United when a rebound cannoned off Minnesota defender Connor
to send the Scorpions down to a 3-2 loss.
Interim coach Alen Marcina
, who had replaced Tim
earlier in the week, looked set to earn his first point when the Scorpions equalized late in the second half on a goal from Pole Tomasz
. Like in the 2-1 loss at New York, San Antonio finished the game with 10 men after losing Jeff Jennings
to a red card.
-- The Tampa
Bay Rowdies remained the only unbeaten team, having come back from a goal down to tie the Atlanta Silverbacks, 1-1. Georgi Hristov
's 50th minute penalty
canceled out an early Pedro Mendes
strike for the Silverbacks. Friday ...
Lauderdale Strikers, last in the spring season, won for the third straight game with a 1-0 victory over first-place Carolina and surged up to second place, one point behind the RailHawks.
A Darnell King
strike in the 52nd minute proved the difference.
