NEW YORK COSMOS 3, MIAMI FC 2
MIAMI -- Lucky Mkosana tallied his second goal of the game two minutes into stoppage time to give the New York Cosmos their second road win of the season, 3-2 over Miami FC at FIU Stadium Saturday.

Hunter Freeman drilled a corner kick into the area that hit the near left post. The ball fell down to the ground where Mkosana kicked it past goalkeeper Mario Daniel Vega.

The Cosmos (8-4-0, 24 points) were fortunate to leave FIU Stadium with three points for the second time this season as twice they gave up the lead.

They had taken a 2-1 lead in the 81st minute as Yohandry Orozco completed a nice give-and-go with second-half substitute Andres Flores.

Miami struck back as right back Hunter Freeman took down Jaime Chavez into the penalty area. Dario Cvitanich converted the penalty kick, beating goalkeeper Brian Holt to the left side for a 2-2 deadlock in the 87th minute.

Mkosana lifted the Cosmos into a 1-0 halftime advantage on a beautifully timed play in the 39th minute. Overlapping left back David Diosa, starting in place of the injured Ayoze, took advantage of a sleeping backline as he fired a ball across the penalty area to an unmarked Mkosana who drilled the ball past Vega for his second goal in as many games.
