Rowdies vs. Strikers

Rowdies Extend Unbeaten Streak with 3-1 Win over Strikers
The Tampa Bay Rowdies notched a 3-1 victory over the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers as the teams resumed their long-standing rivalry Saturday night at Al Lang Stadium. With the victory, the Rowdies extend their unbeaten streak to four games and move into a tie for second place in the NASL standings with eight points.
Midfielder Keith Savage sent a perfect cross to the far post to forward Matt Clare, who deposited it in the bottom corner of the net for his first goal of the year in the 27th minute. Clare also scored against the Strikers in the final game of the 2011 regular season, a 2-0 Tampa Bay victory on September 24 in St. Petersburg.
In the 61st minute, forward Luke Mulholland was taken down in the box by a Strikers player, giving the Rowdies a penalty kick. Forward Mike Ambersley converted the penalty kick in the 62nd minute, scoring in the bottom left corner of the net for a 2-0 Tampa Bay lead. It was Ambersley's first goal of the year.
The Strikers cut the lead to 2-1 in the 90th minute on a goal by midfielder Walter Restrepo after an assist from Abe Thompson.
But the Rowdies put the game away in injury time as Savage made it 3-1 after a great assist from Ambersley. Savage received a pass from Ambersley, who had already eluded Strikers goalkeeper Matt Glaeser, and his shot hit the bottom right of the net for his first goal of the year.
On the night, Ambersley had a goal and an assist, giving him 11 points on four goals and three assists in his last five matches against the Strikers.

Rowdies: Matt Clare - 27th minute (assisted by Keith Savage)
Rowdies: Mike Ambersley - 62nd minute - Penalty Kick

Rowdies vs. Silverbacks

Rowdies tie Atlanta 1-1 on the road

The Tampa Bay Rowdies and Atlanta Silverbacks played to a 1-1 tie Saturday night at Atlanta Silverbacks Park, with both teams scoring in the second half. The Rowdies remain unbeaten in their last three matches after a season-opening 1-0 loss at Puerto Rico on April 7.
Rowdies forward Daniel Antoniuk, who entered the game in the 67th minute, one-timed a perfect cross from forward Tsuyoshi Yoshitake to give the Rowdies a 1-0 lead in the 70th minute. Antoniuk ran onto the pass at the far post for his first goal as a member of the Rowdies since joining the team this offseason.
Atlanta rallied to earn a point when forward Reinaldo Navia scored the tying goal after a ball over the top from Lucas Paulini in the 87th minute. The goal was Navia's third of the season.
"We have a lot of disappointed players because we felt that we should have earned three points tonight," said Rowdies head coach Ricky Hill. "In the first half I felt that we took the game to them and played very well. I thought the second half was more even, but I still thought we were very much in control of the game."
"The game lasts 90 minutes and we were punished for the lapse that allowed the late goal to Atlanta," said Hill. "I am pleased overall with the effort, but disappointed that we didn't get the three points."
The Rowdies applied pressure on the Silverbacks throughout the match. Forward Matt Clare, making his first career start, sent a left-footed cross across the goal mouth in the 10th minute, but the feed was just out of the reach of forward Tsuyoshi Yoshitake.
In the 14th minute, Tampa Bay had a golden opportunity to get on the scoreboard following a great individual run by defender Takuya Yamada. Yamada dribbled deep into Silverbacks territory before finding Yoshitake alone in front of the net. Yoshitake beat Silverbacks goalkeeper Daniel Illyes, but was called offsides on the play.
Clare had his best chance in the 27th minute after a perfect feed from midfielder Keith Savage, but his shot missed just wide to the right of the goal. Clare had another opportunity in the 45th minute with a left-footed strike from inside the box but his shot was saved by Illyes.
Forward Mike Ambersley had two chances early in the second half. His shot in the 55th minute was deflected off the side of the net for a corner kick after a nice pass from Clare. Just a minute later, Ambersley hit a left-footed strike from the other side of the box but was saved by Illyes.
Savage took a left-footed shot from just outside the box in the 62nd minute, forcing Illyes to dive to his left for the save.
After Antoniuk gave the Rowdies the 1-0 lead in the 70th minute, Ambersley had a chance to add to it from in close in the 74th minute, but he missed just wide to the right after some great build up.


Scoring Summary
Rowdies: Daniel Antoniuk - 70th minute (assisted by Tsuyoshi Yoshitake)
Atlanta: Reinaldo Navia - 87th minute (assisted by Lucas Paulini)
