The New York Cosmos stretched its unbeaten streak to eight games with its 1-0 win over Minnesota United FC in a home match Saturday night.
With six wins and two draws during the streak, New York has extended its fall season lead to six points over Edmonton and seven points in the NASL’s combined season standings, but the Eddies have played three fewer games than New York. The Cosmos most recent loss was a 2-1 defeat to Edmonton on July 27.
In the match against Minnesota, New York would get all the offense it would need on this night from a 32nd minute goal by David Diosa. According to a match report from New York, Diosa hit a strike that fizzed past United keeper Sammy Ndjock. Ruben Bover was credited with the assist.
New York keeper Jimmy Maurer, who was named Emirates Cosmos Man of the Match, earned the clean sheet making six saves.
