The opponent: Like the Rowdies, Miami has scored only one goal in two games this season, that coming from halftime substitute Paulo Araujo while trailing 1-0 in the second half against Rochester in the opener.

Julian Valentin, Jeremy Christie and Takuya Yamada each have two. … Christie (M), Yamada (M), Valentin (D) and Robert Valentino (D) have played all 180 minutes of the first two games. … The Rowdies have committed 33 fouls, 11 more than their opponents. Chad Burt leads with seven.
