Randy Horton, who was the Cosmos MVP back in 1972, was at today’s game:
The New York Cosmos controlled the early part of the match keeping possession, but Bermuda, once they settled, created a chance as Tre Ming had back to back shots just miss the target. However neither team scored in the first half, and they went to the break with the score deadlocked at 0 – 0.
In the 58th minute Bermuda took the lead, when Ming spotted the New York Cosmos goalkeeper Maurer off his line and his long range shot went in. However late in the game the New York Cosmos pulled even when Flores blasted home a shot from some 12 yards out to level the match at 1 – 1.
Things became a tad heated at one point in front of the benches, with words being exchanged, however the situation calmed down, and the game ended 1 – 1.
