The goal came from a corner kick taken by substitute Adrianinho who came into the game just two minutes earlier.

Fort Lauderdale (1-4-1, 4pts) goalkeeper Bruno made two quality stops in the later stages of the second half to keep a clean sheet by turning away shots by Jacksonville (1-4-1, 4pts) substitutes Danny Barrow and Charles Eloundou.

NEW YORK COSMOS 3, PUERTO RICO FC 0
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- The New York Cosmos scored two goals in the final minutes to win their eighth game of the year without a loss at Shuart Stadium, defeating Puerto Rico FC, 3-0, on Saturday night.

The win set a league record for the Cosmos, who have won 10 straight at home dating back to last year. The record was previously set at nine by the Carolina RailHawks in 2011.

Goalkeeper Jimmy Maurer, back in the net after he was benched for the 2-1 loss at FC Edmonton Wednesday, recorded the clean sheet.

New York (4-2-1, 13 points in the fall season) was the beneficiary of an own goal by Puerto Rico FC (1-1-3, 5) in the 16th minute to take a 1-0 lead. Lucky Mkosana broke down the left flank and hit a crossing ball that seemed destined for a streaking Yasmani Duk. Defender Cristiano Diaz had little choice but to lunge for the ball, pushing it past goalkeeper David Meves and into his own goal.

Midfielder Juan Arango iced the contest in the 84th minute, scoring in his third straight game. Arango’s team-leading seventh goal of the season came after some nifty work by Mkosana on the right flank in which he cut the ball back twice before centering to the unmarked Venezuelan star.

Mkosana closed the game with his fourth goal of the year on a breakaway in second-half injury time.

MINNESOTA UNITED 2, RAYO OKC 2
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - Futty Danso scored three minutes into second half stoppage time to lift Rayo OKC to a 2-2- draw with Minnesota United at Miller Stadium Saturday night.

Christian Ramirez had given Minnesota a 2-1 lead less than a minute earlier, finding the back of the net for his 12th goal of the year. Ibson played a ball along the ground, splitting defenders and finding the feet of Ramirez, who slotted it home into the lower corner of the net.

The equalizer came as Rayo defender Kosuke Kimura took the ball from the kickoff and played it high into the box, finding the head of Futty Danso who was well-marked by Damion Lowe. Danso knocked the ball with the back of his head desperately toward net, and found the top corner.

Rayo took the lead in the 60th minute when Michel delivered a free kick to the head of Danso who flicked it on toward the net. The ball took a deflection off the head of Devon Sandoval and found the top right corner of the goal beyond the reach of Steward Ceus.

In the 71st minute Danny Cruz found the head of Justin Davis with a lofted ball at the far post. Davis jumped over his defender and placed a headed shot brilliantly, chipping Fernandes with the ball floating over the goalkeeper’s head and into the far corner of the net, evening things up at 1-1.
