Rowdies manage tie in final seconds on road

BLAINE, Minn. — Defender Andres Arango scored on a header in the final seconds of second-half extra time Saturday as the Rowdies pulled out a 1-1 tie at Minnesota United. The goal was set up by a corner kick, and after a scramble, Rowdies captain Frankie Sanfilippo lobbed the ball into the penalty area, where Arango drove it into the net. Tampa Bay (1-0-2 in the fall season) fell behind in the 17th minute when forward Pablo Campos scored on a tap-in after a pass across the goalmouth from Max Griffin for Minnesota (1-1-1). "I can't grumble about a point at the end of this game because 30 seconds earlier we were coming away with nothing," Rowdies coach Ricky Hill said.

    If Largo and St. Petersburg high schools are going to be successful this football season, it will be because of defense. And if those defenses are going to be successful, it will be because of secondaries that are potentially the best in Pinellas County.
