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."

England: Arsenal had its Premier League title hopes all but dashed when West Ham came from two goals behind to tie 3-3. Arsenal is third, 10 points behind leader Leicester, which was idle. Manchester City pulled within two points of Arsenal by rallying for a 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion.

Spain: Barcelona stumbled for a third straight match in its quest to defend its league title, losing at Real Sociedad 1-0 and letting Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid tighten the race further. Atletico fought back at Espanyol to win 3-1, and Cristiano Ronaldo led Madrid's 4-0 rout of Eibar. Two rounds ago, Barcelona was nine points ahead. The lead is now three over Atletico and four over Madrid.
