Much like the Tampa Bay Rowdies did several weeks ago at Al Lang Stadium, the New York Cosmos overturned a two-goal deficit. The Cosmos, though, were able to complete the comeback to secure a 3-2 win at Shuart Stadium.

David Diosa scored in the 93rd minute as the Cosmos (5W-2D-2L, 17 points) maintained their unbeaten streak at home, which has reached 12 games.  

The Rowdies (2-2-4, 8) came out flying on the road and scored twice in the first 15 minutes. Joe Cole put Tampa Bay in front in the 11th minute on an assist from PC. Just three minutes later, PC turned goalscorer to double the advantage.

Adam Moffat cut the deficit with his sixth goal of the year. His penalty kick beat Rowdies goalkeeper Matt Pickens in the 39th minute. Moffat scored a second penalty kick in the 64th minute to level the score.

Both teams would be reduced to 10 men after Moffat and Darnell King received red cards in the 68th minute as tempers flared in New York.
