The North American Soccer League fall season continues to provide plenty of interesting results as the regular season comes to a close.

The North American Soccer League fall season continues to provide plenty of interesting results as the regular season comes to a close.

The re-formed New York Cosmos are looking the goods at the summit of the table with 24 points from 11 matches with just three fixtures remaining.

The Cosmos cruised past fourth-placed Carolina RailHawks 4-0 on the weekend to assert their authority on the competition but in hot pursuit remains the Tampa Bay Rowdies – seven points in arrears – after edging the Fort Lauderdale Strikers 2-1 thanks to a late penalty from English midfielder Luke Mulholland.

The Rowdies kept their hopes of a NASL Soccer Bowl 2013 berth alive by staying a point ahead of the Atlanta Silverbacks – who beat Minnesota United 3-1 – and three points ahead of a trio of teams (Carolina, Minnesota and Fort Lauderdale).
