Rowdies coach apologizes to fans for team's poor performance via Twitter

TAMPA — Following the Rowdies' soggy and uninspiring 2-1 loss to Carolina on Wednesday night, Tampa Bay coach Paul Dalglish offered his apology to fans for letting them down.

Posting on his Twitter page about an hour following the game, Dalglish wrote:

"All I can do is apologize for our 1st half defensive display. Sorry to the fans who spent money & came out in the rain. We let you down."

With the loss, the Rowdies (6-9-9, 17 points) now sit in ninth place in the USSF Division 2 standings, one point out of the eighth spot. Only the top eight teams advance to the postseason.

Tampa Bay allowed two goals in the game's first 40 minutes and had to play comeback against the Railhawks. Ricardo Sanchez's goal in the 88th minutes wasn't enough.

The Rowdies host AC St. Louis at Steinbrenner Field on Sunday evening at 6 p.m.
