hristov gives rowdies tie at miami

MIAMI — The Rowdies picked up a road point courtesy of Georgi Hristov's 85th minute equalizer against Miami FC at Ocean Bank Field at FIU Stadium on Saturday night.

Hristov's penalty, after Eric Avila had been fouled in the 18-yard box, evened the score after Dario Cvitanich put Miami up 1-0 in the 17th minute. It was Tampa Bay's first goal of the year.

"It was an exciting game," Rowdies coach Stuart Campbell said. "It was end to end, and both teams tried to attack. We're very disappointed to concede the goal we did because it was from a set piece. Before the game, we went through Miami's strength on set pieces."
