Rowdies fall to Carolina

CARY, N.C. — The shorthanded Rowdies gave up two penalty kicks and fell 4-1 to Carolina RailHawks on Saturday night.

Tampa Bay (0-1-1 fall season) was missing injured centerbacks Neill Collins and Tamika Mkandawire, and replacements Stefan Antonijevic and Frankie Sanfilippo were called for fouls leading to the penalty kicks that broke a tie at 1.

"We knew (Collins and Mkandawire) were going to be big misses for us," Rowdies coach Stuart Campbell said. "Defensively we've been very good this season, and they've been a big component of that. We still shouldn't concede four goals.

"Obviously to lose 4-1, it's a big signal for us."

Georgi Hristov scored on a penalty kick for Tampa Bay.
