Cyclones: Tampa Bay (9-3) had won eight games in a row, but considered Sunday's game against 1993 and 1994 USISL champion Greensboro (8-4) a litmus test for how far it has come as a first-year team in the league. However, the Cyclones will have to wait for the results.
Referee Tim Groth called off the match due to unsafe playing conditions from earlier heavy rain with the score tied 2-2 in the second half. The USISL has no provisions for games that end in a tie, so Cyclones president Luis Posso said he would try to reschedule the match.
Dynamo defender Michael Gosselin lay on the field with a severe head injury in a heavy downpour for half an hour until an ambulance arrived. Goalkeeper Michael McGinty appeared to suffer a broken nose, but walked off under his own power.
