Tampa Bay Rowdies USL Playoffs. Score Score Score. Kicked off on a perfect, and cool night at Al Lang Stadium. Miss Lisa and I took in the first Rowdies playoff game. It was a cool night in more ways than one. Great crowd and lots of fun watching “football” near the waterfront in St Pete. The Rowdies are fast. And, I mean real fast. We controlled the ball with a few shots in the first half, but only scored one goal.
Then 2 quick goals to start the second half. After a red card for Tulsa, they played down a man. That’s when the pummeling began with 3 more goals for a 6-2 win.
Coach Neil Collins (who we were watching as a player a few years ago) is fantastic, and you can see it in the execution and ball placement. Coach said, “The ability to play some great football, under pressure, able to be brave, take the ball past people, I thought that was impressive.”
Rowdies home again next Saturday against Birmingham. Go You Rowdies!
