Starting things off for New York an aggressive play by Lucky Mkosana at the 16th minute, as Mkosana tried to push a beautiful pass to Yasmani Duk. This aggressive attack was enough to force Puerto Rico FC Captian captain Cristiano Dias to make a play on the ball, instead of clearing it though the ball went into the net for an own goal and an early 1-0 lead for the Cosmos.

The visiting side had two good chances in the First Half. One Went high of the cage around the 27 minute mark  of the cage the other wide of the cage around the  35 minute mark, before New York having a brilliant opportunity at the 43 minute marker,  thanks Juan Arango that was denied by the Puerto Rico FC Keeper  David Meves.
