Look Back, Look Ahead

The Week That Was:

Goals from Ricardo Sanchez and Long Tan weren’t enough for the Rowdies as they dropped a 4-2 decision on the road to the league leading Austin Aztex.  Four goals in nine minutes saw the Aztex jump out to a 2-0 lead only to be quickly reeled in by FC Tampa Bay.  Two more Aztex goals before the halftime break rounded out the score on the night.

Sanchez’s goal was his second in two games since joining the Rowdies last month from the Vancouver Whitecaps.

The Week To Come:

A crucial tilt against the Puerto Rico Islanders with playoff implications awaits the Rowdies this week in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.  The teams will take the field at 8:05 p.m. on Wednesday.  The Islanders, Rowdies and Montreal Impact are currently even on 24 points in a three way tie for the seventh, eighth and ninth spots in the league standings.  Only the top eight teams will qualify for the USSF D-2 playoffs in October.

After returning from Puerto Rico, the Rowdies will then travel to Fort Lauderdale for a Saturday night match against Coastal Cup rivals Miami FC.  This will be the final meeting of the inaugural Coastal Cup competition.  The Rowdies currently lead the standings with five points over Miami FC’s two.

Outside of USSF D-2, Aston Villa's Manager Martin O'Neill resigned today and Kevin MacDonald, the reserve team manager, will take over the squad. MacDonald is the brother of Rowdies' owner Jeff MacDonald.
