NASL Rewind: Jacksonville fends off Cosmos

The Jacksonville Armada conceded its first goal of the season but came back to tie two-time defending champ New York Cosmos, 1-1, and remains undefeated and in first place after NASL Week 5 action.

Second-place San Francisco remains undefeated team after its third tie in four games, a scoreless stalemate at Indy Eleven.

2006 runner-up Indy Eleven now has a 20-game regular-season home unbeaten streak, but it has yet to win this season, tying all four of its games.

Edmonton celebrated its first win of the season, beating winless Puerto Rico, 2-1.

Miami tied North Carolina thanks to Robert Baggio Kcira's goal in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
