Rowdies rally late for tie
Luke Mulholland scored in the 86th minute and Takuya Yamada in stoppage time to help the Rowdies earn a 3-3 tie at Carolina on Saturday. In between the goals, Carolina's Ray Burse stopped Mike Ambersley's penalty kick, which came after a handball in the box.
"It just shows the resiliency of this team and how we have come together this season," Rowdies D Daniel Scott said.
The one point moves the second-place Rowdies (10-6-4) within one of San Antonio. Carolina (6-6-7) is sixth in the eight-team NASL.
More Rowdies: Japanese F Tsuyoshi Yoshitake, tied for the team lead with six goals, was transferred to Yokohama of Hong Kong's first division. Financial terms weren't disclosed. Yoshitake, 30, started his career with Yokohama's sister team in Japan.
