Tampa Bay Rowdies lose to Rochester Rhinos 3-0 in U.S. Soccer Federation Division 2

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Playoff-bound Rochester scored twice in the final five minutes of the first half and went on to shut out the Rowdies 3-0 Saturday night at Marina Auto Stadium.

Rochester (15-6-6) got its first goal of the U.S. Soccer Federation Division 2 match on a penalty kick by Jonathan Greenfield after a penalty by midfielder Pascal Millien. Its final goal came four minutes into the second half.

The Rowdies (6-10-10) didn't have many scoring chances until the final 15 minutes. Midfielder Ricardo Sanchez took a free kick in the 80th minute that was deflected by Rochester's Scott Vallow and forced a corner, which Sanchez took. Sanchez's corner bent into the box but went straight to Vallow.

In the five minutes of stoppage time, Aaron Wheeler put pressure on Rochester's back line but couldn't convert.

Two Rowdies starters, goalie Daryl Sattler and defender Rob Valentino, did not travel because of injuries sustained last week in practice. They were kept home as a precaution.
