Tampa Bay Rowdies lose 1-0 to Puerto Rico Islanders

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — On a rain-soaked field, the Rowdies lost 1-0 to Puerto Rico in a USSF Division 2 game Saturday night at Juan Ramon Loubriel Stadium.

After a scoreless first half, the Islanders (4-5-1), last in the USL conference, got a goal from forward David Foley in the 65th minute. It was Foley's team-high fifth of the season.

The Rowdies appeared to tie the score soon after.

But defender Rob Valentino's goal off of a free kick was disallowed because Tampa Bay was offsides.

The Rowdies (5-4-3) have lost three in a row since beating the Islanders at home on May 29.

With 18 points, the Rowdies remain nine behind first-place Austin, which lost 3-1 to Miami. Tampa Bay is tied for second with Rochester, which plays today against Montreal.

    Well, that escalated quickly.
