Hello all, Jerm here with another Tampa Bay Sports update for ya! Those Tampa Bay Rowdies are a bunch of fighters aren't they! Last night our own FC Tampa Bay Rowdies, fresh off of a 2-1 win vs the Carolina Railhawks took on the Austin Aztex, and earned a hard fought 3-3 draw!
This is the second time this year the Rowdies have faced the Aztex, with the first game being held here at Steinbrenner Field for the Rowdies home opener last weekend, which ended in a 2-2 draw before a sellout crowd!
Goals by Aaron Wheeler, Joe Donohoe, and Gordon Kljestan secured a vital point for the Rowdies against a tough Aztex side that current sits atop the USL conference standings 7 games into the season.
I was following this game on Twitter folks, and I thought for sure the Aztex were gonna pull this one out, but thanks to Gordon Kljestan for coming to the rescue in the 88th minute to tie the game up and give the Rowdies a much needed point!
The Rowdies are back in action away this Saturday vs AC St. Louis, as they look to get back to winning ways! The following week, the Tampa Bay area will welcome the Rowdies back to Steinbrenner Field for two games in succession vs the Minnesota Stars, and the Puerto Rico Islanders!
If you haven't already done so, be sure to get your tickets and come out and show your support for the Rowdies! Also for away games, be sure to follow the Rowdies on Facebook and Twitter with live game updates!
