NEW YORK — The Cosmos B team could not hold onto a one-goal lead in the second half and dropped a 2-1 decision to the Elm City Express at Rocco B. Commisso Stadium Saturday afternoon.

Fernando Cortez had given Cosmos B a 1-0 lead behind a 24th-minute goal in the National Premier Soccer League game at Columbia University.

Elm City, however, rallied by scoring twice within a five-minute span as Shaquille Saunchez (68th minute) and Matthew Jones (73rd minute).
