The New York Cosmos suffered a 4-1 defeat at the hands of the NASL Fall Season leader Ottawa Fury FC on Tuesday night at Shuart Stadium.

Ottawa jumped in front in the 31st minute. Richie Ryan played a free kick into the 18-yard box to Colin Falvey, who headed back across the box to Paulo Junior. Paulo rifled past Cosmos goalkeeper Jimmy Maurer from 10 yards.

Two minutes into the second half, Andrés Flores leveled for the Cosmos on his third goal of the season. The Salvadoran international latched onto an Ayoze cross and headed inside the far post to tie the score at 1-1.

Eight minutes later, Flores nearly had his second, but Ottawa goalkeeper Romuald Peiser made a terrific save to parry the attempt away, resulting in a Cosmos corner kick.

Paulo Junior netted his second goal of the match in the 56th minute. Sinisa Ubiparipovic played a quick one-two before lofting a ball into the box, where Paulo Junior knocked it inside the far post for his first brace since 2009.

With the Cosmos pushing numbers forward in search for the equalizer, Ottawa pounced and went in front, 3-1, on an own goal by defender Carlos Mendes, who slid to challenge a Tom Heinemann shot in the 77th minute.

One minute later, Ubiparipovic sent a cross to Heinemann, who put the game away with a low shot from the edge of the 18-yard box.
