Things were somewhat eventful in the North American Soccer League (NASL) last weekend as four games were played and six-goals were scored. The North Carolina and New York Cosmos both battled to a 1-0 wins, while Miami Football Club cruised to a 2-0 home win. Meanwhile, the Armada and Indy Eleven settled for a 1-1 stalemate. Here's a recap of the matches played last weekend.

Puerto Rico FC 0-1 North Carolina

Last Saturday saw second placed North Carolina edged seventh placed Puerto Rico in a 1-0 road win at Puerto Rico. The only goal of the encounter came-early in the twenty-eight minute when Carolina star player Lance Liang received Miller's through ball to net in the match opener.

Lance Liang now has two-goals and two assists this term, good enough to be tied up for the second most in both (top scorers and top assists) categories. Win-less through their opening five matches, Puerto Rico Football Club will certainly want to turn-things around soon before the 2017 season gets too far-away from them.

Jacksonville Armada 1-1 Indy Eleven

Both Armada and Indy Eleven continue their unbeaten run after their 1-1 stalemate on Saturday afternoon. The encounter was fairly not eventful, as the both sides netted-in the goals in the first-half. Indy Eleven striker Justin Braun got on the score-board last Saturday, extending his league tallies of two assists and three goals in five matches.

Jonathan Glenn tied up the scoreline for Jacksonville Armada, clinically heading home on a well taken free-kick cross. Jacksonville Armada will be displeased not to pick all maximum points at their home ground, but as they work towards securing their first-place spot in the Spring campaign, they'll certainly grip on any points they can get in their subsequent games.

San Francisco Deltas 0-1 New York Cosmos

Last season champions. The Cosmos took the lead late on Saturday night, earning their first road victory of the 2017 campaign. The encounter was a bit eventful, with the only goal coming in the sixty-ninth minute thanks to an Emmanuel Ledesma brilliant finish.

Cosmos goalkeeper Jimmy Maurer extended his league tallies of 21 completed saves this season, coming up “superb” five good times in the game. Both San Francisco Deltas and New York Cosmos now lie fifth and fourth in the log respectively.

Miami FC 2-0 FC Edmonton

Miami Football Club scored both goals in each half as they outclassed Edmonton by two goals to nil last Saturday. The goals came from Miami playmaker Stefano Pinho, who's tied for the second place in the league most assists, and Ghanaian-born midfielder Kwadwo Poku, who's second in the league goalscorers chart. The victory now move Miami to the second spot in the NASL standings. Having finished fifth in the inaugural campaign, Miami Football Club are apparently determined this time to do better this term.

Edmonton now lies at the cellar of the log, having earn a total of three points in their opening five matches of the 2017 NASL spring season. They'll hope to consolidate on their attacking potency and try to turn things around this spring season.
