The New York Cosmos created chances on Saturday night, and dominated possession throughout the match, Because of that, they'll likely head back to New York feeling that it was two points dropped as opposed to one point gained, as they were forced to settle for a scoreless draw in Atlanta.
Lucky Mkosana made his first start of the season, and his speed and mobility were causing real problems for the Silverbacks defense all match. Also impressing this evening was Marcos Senna, whose reading of the game, ability to drop passes on a dime, and set piece delivery amaze me every time I watch him play.
Fortunately, Gio Savarese's side still top the NASL table, though the Tampa Bay Rowdies have moved to within a oint of the top spot. Next up for the boys in green is the Ottawa Fury on Saturday, a match that will be played at MCU Park in Brooklyn and should be a lot of fun.
