Juan Arango’s third goal of the year, in the 17th minute, gave the visiting New York Cosmos (4-0-2, 12) the game’s early lead. Arango rose above the Miami FC (0-2-3, 2) defense to meet a cross from Hunter Freeman and head past goalkeeper Daniel Vega. The Cosmos’ victory, coupled with Carolina’s loss, puts New York into a first-place tie, on points, in the Spring Season standings. The Cosmos have the superior goal differential, the first tiebreaker, over Carolina.


New York doubled the lead in the 34th minute when defender Gabriel Farfán settled an errant clearing attempt and powered a right-footed shot low and past Vega from the top of the penalty area.


New York added another goal early in the second half as captain and defender Carlos Mendes split the Miami FC defense with a long pinpoint pass that sent Jair Arrieta in alone for the Cosmos’ third of the night.


Since opening with two draws, expansion Miami FC (0-2-3, 2) has lost three straight games and remains the only team without a victory to its credit in the Spring Season. The victory was the Cosmos’ first on the road after two losses in which they allowed game-breaking goals in the waning moments of both games. Over six games, the Cosmos have won two straight, lost two straight and won two straight again.
