[NASL REWIND: Week 6]
An own goal in stoppage time gave the Tampa Bay Rowdies a 3-2 win over Carolina and a share of NASL
lead with the RailHawks and Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, who tied San Antonio 0-0. Lucky Mkosana
, the Rowdies' new signing from the Harrisburg City
Islanders, sent in a cross from the right wing that was deflected and then headed into his own goal by RailHawks defender Paul Hamilton.
After Ty Shipalane
out Carolina ahead, the Rowdies took a second-half lead through Evans Frimpong
and Georgi Hristov
, but the RailHawks leveled on a goal Enzo Martinez.
"We were fortunate to come across that
late goal," said Rowdies coach Ricky Hill
. "It is great for the fans and it is a morale boost for our players. We created chances and luckily we were able to
get the three points."
The New York Cosmos trail the leading trio by a point after their 1-1 with the spring champion Atlanta Silverbacks.
Former Spanish international Marcos Senna
put the hosts ahead from the penalty spot, but Shane Morone
y headed a
second-half equalizer to share the points.
The Cosmos' third home game drew 5,598 fans.
United FC sits fifth with eight points after its 1-1 tie with FC Edmonton. A Christiano Dias
goal put Minnesota ahead before Corey Hertzog
pounced to equalize with his second strike of the season a minute later.
