Minnesota chances to extend their unbeaten streak to seven games.
"It was definitely a big win because we played against a very good team," said Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese

win. Overall, we beat a very good team today."
Goals either side of halftime from Martin Nunez
and Bradlee Baladez

"The first half was the best
from this team of the season so far," said Strikers coach Gunter Kronsteiner

Nobody expected that we could beat them."
The San Antonio Scorpions won their second straight home win as they edged the Atlanta Silverbacks, 1-0, on Polish striker Tomasz Zahorski
