Sports in brief: Rowdies earn tie in final seconds

Soccer

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.
