Rowdies tie Indy Eleven

INDIANAPOLIS — The Rowdies earned a road point with a 1-1 draw against the NASL spring-season champion Indy Eleven on Saturday night.

Tampa Bay (7-8-7) scored first, with Justin Chavez putting in his first Rowdies goal in the 28th minute. Joe Cole sent in a lofted free kick from about 35 yards out that Chavez tapped between the legs of Indy goalkeeper Jon Busch at the back post.

Indy equalized six minutes later on a goal by Omar Gordon. A passing sequence was nearly broken up by Rowdies captain Tamika Mkandawire, but his touch wasn't enough to steer the ball clear of Gordon, who finished it cleanly past Matt Pickens.

"It was a good away performance," coach Stuart Campbell said. "We spoke before the match about the importance of getting a result tonight. We would've loved to have won, but that was a well-earned point."
