…>>Heather: IT’S A BUSY STRETCH OF THE SEASON FOR THE ROWDIES, TONIGHT THEY HIT THE FIELD FOR THE FIFTH TIME IN 15 DAYS. ST. LOUIS IS IN TOWN FOR THE FIRST EVER MATCHUP. IT’S THE ROWDIES VERSUS ST. LOUIS. YOUR LIVE PREGAME SHOW STARTS RIGHT NOW. ♪ ♪>>Heather: IT’S MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND AND MILITARY APPRECIATION NIGHT. SOME COOL STUFF PLANNED TO HONOR OUR NATION’S SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN. WELCOME. WE ARE JUST OVER 30 MINUTES AWAY FROM KICKOFF BETWEEN THE ROWDIES AND ST. LOUIS FC AS THE ROWDIES TRY TO POWER THROUGH THIS HECTIC STRETCH OF THE SEASON. I’M HEATHER, JOINING ME IS LEE GODFREY. WE’LL CHECK IN WITH MIKE PEPPER LATER IN THE SHOW. LEE, IT’S A HECTIC STRETCH, BUT IT’S THE OPPOSITE FOR ST. LOUIS FC.>>THEY HAD A GREAT START TO THE SEASON. THEY WERE UNDEFEATED IN THEIR FIRST FOUR GAMES. BECAUSE OF ALL THE FLOODING IN MISSOURI, THEIR STADIUM WAS UNDER WATER AND THEY HAD TO RESCHEDULE A GAME. IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE THEY HAVE BEEN PLAYING LEAGUE GAME. FOR PREKI, WHEN YOU ARE STARTING TO BUILD A TEAM, YOU THINK IT’S GOING TO BE TOUGH ENOUGH AS THE HEAD COACH TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THESE CIRCUMSTANCES.>>Heather: LET’S GET THINGS STARTED WITH A FEW NEWS AND NOTES.>>Lee: DAMIAN LOWE WILL NOT IN BE THE GAME. HE’S SUSPENDED. AND YELLOW CASHED WATCH, DARNELL KING IS ON FOUR YELLOW CARDS. IF HE GETS ONE TONIGHT, THEY WILL MISS THE NEXT LEAGUE MATCH.>>Heather: NOW TO UPDATE YOU, THEY WON THE OPENING MATCH AGAINST JACKSONVILLE U-23s AND NOW TRAVEL TO FACE MIAMI. THE WINNER GOES ON TO PLAY ORLANDO CITY. A HUGE POTENTIAL.>>Lee: A LOT OF CHANGES FOR THE STARTING 11 JUST FOR THAT REASON, STUART CAMPBELL SHOWING HOW MUCH HE WANTS TO PUT OUT HIS STRONGEST 11 ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY ORLANDO CITY OF MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER.>>Heather: LET’S LOOK AT THE STANDINGS. ROWDIES BATTLING FOR THE TOP SPOT IN THE EASTERN CONFERENCE.>>Lee: CHARLESTON IS 3 POINTS HEAD OF THE ROWDIES. YOU SEE THE RHINOS. GAMES IN HAND, YOU HAVE TO WIN THOSE GAMES TO MOVE UP THE STANDINGS. CRUCIAL FOR THE ROWDIES TO GET THE FULL THREE POINT AT HOME TONIGHT.>>Heather: DAMION LOWE IS OUT BECAUSE HE’S SUSPENDED DUE TO YELLOW CARD ACCUMULATION. AND JUSTIN CHAVEZ NOT AVAILABLE BECAUSE OF A TOE INJURY.>>Lee: CHAVEZ MADE HIS WAY INTO THE STARTING 11. HE WILL MISS TONIGHT WITH THE TOE AND HIS INJURY IS LISTED DAY TO DAY.>>Heather: LET’S CHECK IN WITH MIKE PEPPER WHO IS STANDING BUY WITH ROWDIES HEAD COACH STUART CAMPBELL.>>Mike: COACH, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT GAME AFTER GAME AFTER GAME. THIS IS ALREADY THE FIFTH HERE IN 15 DAYS. STILL ANOTHER COUPLE AFTER THAT. WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT, HOW IS THE TEAM FEELING? YOU GOT A FEW SUBS THAT CAN GET AN OPPORTUNITY.>>WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A TOUGH STRETCH OF GAMES. THE PLAYERS HAVE PERFORMED WELL. WE HAD ONE GOOD RESULT ON THE ROAD, THE OTHER ONE DIDN’T GO AS PLAN. BUT THAT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH FATIGUE, WE WERE FIT AND STRONG, EVEN THE 91st MINUTE. WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK AT HOME IN FRONT OF THE FANS.>>Mike: WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE RESULT GOING INTO ROCHESTER, YOU DON’T THINK IT HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE GAME AFTER GAME AFTER GAME?>>NO, IT WAS A SCRAPPY GAME. THEY SCORED, WE HAD TWO OR THREE. WE COULDN’T SCORE. WASN’T A GREAT GAME. BOTH TEAMS NULLIFIED EACH OTHER. IT WAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT. ON THE ROAD, YOU WANT TO TRY TO PICK UP THE BEAR MINIMUM OF POINTS. ALL IN ALL, RELATIVELY HAPPY WITH THAT RETURN.>>Mike: ST. LOUIS HASN’T PLAYED A LOT AT ALL. IT’S GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING BALANCE TONIGHT.>>IT IS. THEY ARE NICE AND FRESH. THEY HAVEN’T PLAYED MANY GAMES. ONE OF THEM THINGS THAT WE’LL ADJUST TO. THE PLAYERS, THE BEST PART OF BEING A FRESHMAN SOCCER PLAYER IS PLAYING IN THIS ENVIRONMENT IN FRONT OF OUR FANS. WE’LL BE READY.>>Mike: GOOD LUCK TONIGHT. BACK TO YOU.>>Heather: YESTERDAY WE CAUGHT UP WITH ALEX MORRELL AND DARNELL KING. LET’S HEAR WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY ABOUT BOUNCING BACK AGAINST ST. LOUIS.>>WE PLAY AT HOME, WE HAVE OUR FANS BEHIND US, BIG SUPPORT. WHEN YOU PLAY AT HOME, IT MEANS MORE. YOU WANT TO GET THAT WIN FOR THE PEOPLE THAT COME OUT AND SUPPORT YOU AND MOVE UP IN THE TABLE. WE ARE EXCITED.>>REACTION, REACTION, REACTION, THAT’S WHAT WE SAY ALL THE TIME. WE ARE PISSED OFF ABOUT THE LOSS. WE LOOK FORWARD TO COMING OUT.>>IT’S NICE TO PLAY ON THE GRASS, ESPECIALLY FROM HARD TURF. ANKLES ARE A LITTLE SORE. DON’T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT OUT OF A TEAM YOU HAVEN’T PLAYED. JUST TRY TO PLAY YOUR GAME MORE THAN THEIR GAME. JUST EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED AND HOPE TO GET OUR 3 POINTS LIKE WE NEED TO.>>I KNOW SOME OF THEM PRETTY WELL, I PLAYED WITH THEM LAST YEAR. THEY ARE A NEW TEAM. BUT ST. LOUIS WILL ALWAYS PLAY HARD, FIGHT HARD. THEY ARE GOING TO COME OUT AND PLAY AND JUST TRUMP THAT AND WE’LL BE ALL RIGHT.>>Heather: THE ROWDIES DISAPPOINTED ABOUT THAT LOSS ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT IN ROCHESTER. TONIGHT IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY A FEW DAYS LATE TORE — LATE TORE BOUNCE BACK. THEY DIDN’T GENERATE ENOUGH OPPORTUNITIES IN THE FIRST 45 MINUTES OF PLAY. YOU HEARD THE GUYS SAY IT, THEY WEREN’T HAPPY ABOUT IT. THEY WANT TO BE ABLE TO DICTATE THEIR OWN GAME HERE, NOT WORRY ABOUT THE OTHER TEAM IN ST. LOUIS. I KNOW PREKI FROM MY DAYS IN TORONTO, HE WAS A HEAD COACH THERE. HE IS A TOUGH COACH TO PLAY FOR. HE HAS THEM IN GREAT SHAPE. HE’S A HARD WORKER. HE WANTS A HUNDRED PERCENT OUT OF HIS PLAYERS EVERY GAME. THAT’S WHY HE’S HAD SO MUCH SUCCESS AS A PLAYER AND COACH IN THE DIFFERENT LEAGUES HE’S MANAGED IN.>>Heather: A BUSY STRETCH MEANS LOTS OF HIGHLIGHTS. WE’LL RECAP THE GAMES IN ROCHESTER AND TORONTO. YOU ARE WATCHING THE ROWDIES PREGAME SHOW ON THIS TV LIVE TAMPA BAY.>>ON BEHALF OF THE ROWDIES, TO ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE MILITARY SERVICE, THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU TO THE MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN, WE APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU DO. WE ARE HERE PLAYING FOR YOU.>>I WANT TO THANK ALL THE SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN WHO SACRIFICED SO MUCH FOR OUR FREEDOM, TO PURSUE YOU’RE DREAMS, ESPECIALLY WHO MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE CAN’T THANK YOU ENOUGH.>>HEY, GUYS, WISHING ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY. I APPRECIATE THE SERVICE YOU GIVE TO OUR COUNTRY.>>ON BEHALF OF THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES, I WANT TO WISH YOU A HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY. AND A BIG THANKS TO ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO SERVE THE COUNTRY.>>ON BEHALF OF MYSELF, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AND EVERYTHING YOU DO FOR US. IF IT WASN’T FOR YOU, WE WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO DO WHAT WE DO OUT HERE.>>Heather: WELCOME BACK TO THE ROWDIES PREGAME SHOW. IT’S MILITARY APPRECIATION NIGHT FOR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. LAST FRIDAY THE ROWDIES HAD A GREAT PERFORMANCE IN TORONTO WINNING 3-1, NOT ONLY ON THE ROAD, BUT ON TURF. BUT THEN IN ROCHESTERS THE ROAD WOES RETURNED TO THE ROWDIES.>>Mike: YOU GO ON THE ROAD AND YOU GET A WIN IN YOUR FIRST ONE, YOU WANT TO GET ON A TWO-ROAD TRIP AT LEAST THREE POINTS. THE ROWDIES GOT THAT. WE’LL START OFF WITH THE HIGHLIGHTS IN TORONTO AND INTO THE 10th MINUTE WHEN A NICE BALL OVER THE TOP, IT’S LUKA ACELLO UP ON THE FRONT. THE STORY WAS HE GOT BEHIND THE HIGHLINE. TORONTO FC 2, LEADS 1-0. DAMION LOWE FIND GEORGI HRISTOV. SAVED BY ANGULO. YOU SEE THE NICE TOUCH ON THE SHOT ON TARGET KEPT THE ROWDIES SCORELESS. DARWIN JONES UP THE RIGHT WING, HIS CROSS ABLE TO FIND JOE COLE. COLE MAKES NO DOUBT ABOUT IT AS HE IS ABLE TO PUT IT INTO THE BACK OF THE NET. ROWDIES END UP TYING THIS ONE AND MARTIN PATERSON COMES ON AND SCORES ON HIS VERY FIRST TOUCH OFF THE FREE KICK FROM MICHAEL NANCHOFF. THE ROWDIES TAKE A 2-1 LEAD. THERE’S PATERSON FINISHING. THEN IN THE 82nd MINUTE JONES GETS SPACE ON THE FAR SIDE. HE TAKES THE LONG SHOT FROM 20, DIPPING DOWN. IT GOES IN. AND THE ROWDIES END UP WITH THE FINAL SCORE, NICE TIPPING SHOT, WINNING 3-1 AGAINST TORONTO FC. THEN ROCHESTER, MICHAEL NANCHOFF GETS AN OPPORTUNITY FROM 30 OUT, IT GOES JUST OVER THE CROSS BAR. NANCHOFF NOT ABLE TO PUT IT ON TARGET. 27th MINUTE, ROCHESTER GETS THE CORNER KICK. PICKEN WAS ABLE TO COLLECT THE REBOUND, ABLE TO PUT IT IN. ROCHESTER TAKES A 1-0 LEAD IN THE 27th MINUTE, AS YOU SEE AGAIN FALL ABLE TO CONVERT. 31st MINUTE, NANCHOFF FOR THE ROWDIES GETS THE CORNER KICK, IN-SWINGER. GOMEZ ON HIS LINE, RIGHT ANGLE, KEEPS IT OUT OF THE NET. ONLY A CHANCE IN THE SECOND HALF. BUT IT WAS LUKE BODEN. MARTIN PATERSON ON THE OPPORTUNITY, BUT IT GOES WIDE. THE ROWDIES’ CHANCES AT TYING THIS ONE UP COME TO AN END ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT. ROCHESTER KNOCKS OFF TAMPA BAY ROWDIES, ROWDIES COMING OFF A ONE GAME LOSING STREAK. THEY CAN’T WAIT TO GET BACK ON THE FIELD TO GET THAT GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AGAIN.>>Heather: ABSOLUTELY, MIKE. AND, LEE, THOSE WERE TWO OPPOSITE PERFORMANCES FROM THE ROWDIES. THEY WEREN’T THEIR USUAL SELFS IN ROCHESTER.>>Lee: THEY WEREN’T. THEY DIDN’T HAVE THE BEST START LIKE YOU SAW IN TORONTO. BUT THEY WERE ABLE TO COME BACK AND HAVE THEIR DRIVE AND DETERMINATION, SOME GOOD SUBSTITUTIONS AND SCORING OPPORTUNITIES AGAINST TORONTO FC TO COME AWAY WITH THAT 3-1 VICTORY AND HAVE A LOT OF CONFIDENCE GOING INTO ROCHESTER. BUT FALL SAT OUT THE PREVIOUS GAME BECAUSE OF THE SUSPENSION ON SATURDAY. HE WAS HAPPY TO GET BACK INTO THE LINEUP AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE RHINOS. THE REST OF THE SECOND HALF JUST NOT A LOT GENERATED BY THE ROWDIES. I THOUGHT THEY SHOULD HAVE PUSHED A LITTLE FORWARD, MAYBE LET THEMSELVES OPEN UP THE BACK TO TRY TO GET THAT EQUALIZING GOAL. IT IS GOOD TO GET 3 POINTS ON TWO ROAD GAMES, THAT’S A FANTASTIC RESULT NONETHELESS.>>Heather: WE HAVE TO STEP AWAY. DON’T GO AWAY, THERE IS A WHOLE LOT MORE ROWDIES PREGAME SHOW COMING UP AFTER THE BREAK.>>Heather: WELCOME BACK TO OUR ROWDIES PREGAME SHOW. HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A GREAT START TO YOUR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. THE ROWDIES ARE GETTING SET TO STAY ON ST. LOUIS FC TONIGHT. WE KNOW THE ROWDIES LOOK GOOD IN THEIR GREEN AND GOLD HOOPS, BUT WHAT ABOUT WHEN THEY ARE NOT ON THE FIELD. WE ASKED THEM WHICH IS THE MOST FASHIONABLE. ONE PLAYER WON BY A LANDSLIDE.>>DAMION HAS GOOD STYLE.>>DAMION.>>DAMION, HE CAN PUT A ONE, TWO STYLE TOGETHER. I LIKE TO SAY MYSELF AS WELL. YEAH.>>I THINK DAMION IS GOOD. BUT ON GAME DAYS, HE HAS SMART CASUAL.>>SOMETIMES I SEE HIM WEARING WHITE TENNIS SOCKS IN HIS SHOES. I DON’T SEE IT THAT OFTEN.>>I LIKE SOME OF THE JAMAICAN STYLE. DRESS WITH A LITTLE FLARE.>>MYSELF, OBVIOUSLY. THAT PIECE ALL RIGHT. DARWIN. NO HORROR SHOWS THIS YEAR.>>LUKE DRESSES UP PRETTY DECENT SOMETIMES.>>HE LOOKS AFTER HIS HAIR.>>MARTIN. MARTIN VINGAARD. I’M A T-SHIRT, SHORTS AND FLIP-FLOP SORT OF GUY.>>MARTIN VINGAARD FOR SURE.>>EVEN ON REGULAR DAYS HE COMES IN WITH A LITTLE FLASH. PROBABLY MORE THAN VINGAARD. THE SHOES, I LOVE THE SHOES.>>MARTIN VINGAARD, HE’S ALWAYS GOT SOMETHING. HE LOOKS PRETTY SMART MOST DAYS. PROBABLY GO WITH HIM.>>MARTIN VINGAARD. DANISH VIKING. HE COULD EASILY GO DOWN THE CAT WALK.>>Heather: MARTIN VINGAARD THE CLEAR WINNER OF THAT ONE. TAKING A LOOK AT THE WEATHER FOR KICKOFF TONIGHT, CLEAR DAY IN ST. PETERSBURG, 82°, 0% CHANCE OF RAIN AND 35% HUMIDITY. SO IT SHOULD BE A PRETTY NICE NIGHT.

WELCOME TO OUR PREGAME SHOW ON THIS TV TAMPA BAY. WE ARE JOINING YOU LIVE WITH KICKOFF BETWEEN THE ROWDIES AND ST. LOUIS FC JUST AROUND THE CORNER. LET BREAK DOWN ST. LOUIS FC, A TEAM THAT’S IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PACK IN THE EASTERN CONFERENCE.>>THEY HAVEN’T PLAYED THAT MANY GAMES BECAUSE OF THE FLOODING IN MISSOURI. PREKI HAS WON MLS CUP AS A PLAYER AND WON TITLES IN ANY LEAGUE HE’S COACHED IN. HE WILL GET ST. LOUIS GOING ON THE RIGHT TRACK. YOU JUST HOPE IT’S NOT TONIGHT.>>Heather: NOW TO LOOK AT ST. LOUIS AND THEIR STYLE OF PLAY, LET’S FLASH BACK TO THEIR HOMEOWNER AGAINST OTTAWA.>>Lee: LOOK AT THIS RIGHT HERE, A FANTASTIC TACKLE. HE PASSES IT OUT TO BJURMAN. HE HAS A NICE FINISH. A PERFECT WAY TO GET ON THE COUNTER. ST. LOUIS CAN MAKE YOU PAY THAT HIGHLINE AND QUICK COUNTER AND IT STARTED BY A MIDFIELD TACKLE.>>Heather: A LITTLE WHILE AGO MIKE PEPPER CAUGHT UP WITH PREKI.>>Mike: COACH, WELCOME TO ST. PETERSBURG, IT SHOULD BE A NICE EVENING FOR A GAME.>>IT’S A NICE EVENING. IT’S NOT AS HUMID AS WE EXPECTED IT TO BE. NICE CONDITIONS, BEAUTIFUL FIELD. WE ARE HOPING TO BE A GOOD GAME.>>Mike: EARLY ON YOU STARTED OFF GANGBUSTERS. IT’S BEEN A STRUGGLE. HAS IT BEEN ANY PARTICULAR REASON? OPPORTUNITIES COMING, JUST NOT FINISHING?>>WE HAVEN’T BEEN PLAYING CONSISTENTLY. WE HAVE PLAYED ONE LEAGUE GAME IN THE LAST FOUR AND A HALF WEEKS. IT’S TAKING A TOLL ON US. IT’S BEEN DIFFICULT STRETCH WITH ALL THE FLOODING AND MOVING THE SITES FOR TRAINING GROUND AND EVERYTHING ELSE. AT THE SAME TIME THE GROUP HAS BEEN VERY GOOD, THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING VERY HARD. NOBODY HAS BEEN MAKING ANY EXCUSES. WE JUST GOT TO PUT IT ON THE FIELD GAME TIME.>>Mike: THAT SCHEDULE A BIT OF AN ANOMALY. WHAT KIND OF CHALLENGE DOES TAMPA BAY BRING TO YOU, OR ROWDIES?>>THEY ARE A GOOD TEAM. A LOT OF VETERAN GUYS. THEY PLAYED IN GOOD LEAGUES AROUND THE WORLD. WE ARE EXPECTING A TOUGH GAME. THAT’S NOT GOING TO PHASE US, WE’LL DO OUR OWN THING.>>Mike: BEST OF LUCK TONIGHT.>>THANK YOU.>>Heather: LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT A KEY PLAYER TO WATCH FROM EACH TEAM.>>Lee: LET’S START WITH ST. LOUIS FC. IT’S CHRISTIAN VALESKI. ON THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES SIDE, DAMION LOWE IS SUSPENDED. TIM WAS THE IRON MAN IN DEFENSE. HE’S BEEN WAITING FOR HIS TIME. I DON’T THINK HE WILL MISS ANYTHING STARTING AT CENTER BACK POSITIONS WITH NEILL COLLINS.>>Heather: THESE ARE TWO TEAMS IN DIFFERENT POSITIONS. WE HEARD FROM PREKI. THIS IS THEIR SECOND LEAGUE GAME IN THE LAST FOUR AND A HALF WEEKS. THE ROWDIES ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A BUSY STRETCH. WHERE DO YOU THINK THE ADVANTAGE LIES? THE ROWDIES MAYBE TIRED BUT MORE IN FORM?>>Lee: THE ROWDIES WANT TO GET BACK TO THEIR WINNING WAIST ESPECIALLY AGAINST THAT CUP MATCH AGAINST MIAMI. AND TO BE ABLE TO PUT AWAY ST. LOUIS WOULD BE KEY BECAUSE THE STRUGGLES ST. LOUIS HAS HAD. WITH THE LACK OF GAMES, THEY ARE CHANGING FROM WEEK TO WEEK BECAUSE OF THE FLOODING. IT’S BEEN DIFFICULT TO STAY POSITIVE FOR THIS SIDE. AN EARLY GOAL, COME OUT STRONG IN FRONT OF THE HOME CROWD AND GET THAT LEAD WILL BE CRUCIA FOR THE ROWDIES TO EARN A FULL 3 POINTS.>>Heather: A LITTLE DIFFERENT LINEUP FOR TAMPA BAY. BUT THE ROWDIES ARE LUCKY TO HAVE A DEEP TEAM.>>Lee: IT PEOPLES TO THE DEPTH OF THE TEAM. THAT BENCH IS JUST AS STRONG, TOO, WHEN YOU HAVE PLAYERS LIKE DESHORN BROWN AND GEORGI HRISTOV, STARTING PATERSON UP TOP TONIGHT. IT’S A GOOD THING FOR STUART CAMPBELL TO HAVE THAT LUXURY TO CHANGE THOSE PLAYERS.>>Heather: THAT WRAPS UP TONIGHT’S PREGAME SHOW. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. ROWDIES VERSS ST. LOUIS FC IS UP NEXT.>>Mike: IT’S A EASTERN LEISUREY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. MIKE PEPPER ALONG SIDE LEE GODFREY. IT’S A TALE OF TWO TEAMS, TOTALLY DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE SEASON EVEN THOUGH WE ARE AT MEMORIAL DAY AS THE ROWDIES HAVE SEVEN GAMES IN 22 DAYS, ST. LOUIS HASN’T PLAYED BUT THREE GAMES.>>Lee: ST. LOUIS WENT UNDEFEATED. THE ROWDIES ARE COMING OFF THAT DISAPPOINTING LOSS IN ROCHESTER, WANT TO GET BACK TO WINNING GAMES BEFORE MIAMI MID WEEK.>>Mike: TONIGHT WE DO HAVE A COUPLE OF PLAYERS WE WANT TO KEEP OUR EYES ON HERE.>>Lee: FOR THE ROWDIES, HOW ABOUT HIS FIRST LEAGUE START OF THE YEAR, TAMIKA IN FOR LOWE. HE WILL FIT IN PERFECT. AND YOU GOT TO WATCH HIM FOR ST. LOUIS.>>Mike: WE ARE PREPARING FOR MILITARY APPRECIATION NIGHT. KICKOFF AND STARTING LINEUPS COMING UP NEXT. YOU ARE WATCHING TAMPA BAY ROWDIES SOCCER ON THIS TV TAMPA BAY ROWDIES. [NATIONAL ANTHEM]>>Mike: IT IS MILITARY APPRECIATION NIGHT, DOWNTOWN ST. PETERSBURG. WE ARE A COUPLE OF MINUTES AWAY FROM KICKOFF. MIKE PEPPER ALONG SIDE LEE GODFREY. AND LET’S GET A LOOK AT THE STARTING LINEUPS BROUGHT TO YOU BY SEMINAL HARD ROCK CAFE AND CASINO.>>Lee: THEY DID MAKE A CHANGE IN GOAL TONIGHT FROM THEIR MAIN STARTING KEEPER, NUMBER 99, ADAM GETS THE START IN GOAL.>>Mike: AND FOR THE ROWDIES.>>A FEW CHANGES BECAUSE OF THE U.S. OPEN CUP MID WEEK. PATERSON STARTS UP TOP. SAVAGE GETS IN IN THE HOLDING MIDFIELD POSITION. AND WEARY IN FOR LOWE.>>Mike: AND THE THIRD MEMBER OF OUR TEAM ON THE SIDELINE, HEATHER DONNELLY.>>Heather: WE SPOKE WITH ST. LOUIS FC PREKI. THIS IS ONLY THEIR SECOND LEAGUE GAME IN THE LAST FOUR AND A HALF WEEKS. HE WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE WEATHER. IT’S BEEN COOL IN ST. LOUIS RECENTLY.3 HE EXPECTED IT TO BE HOT HERE. LIKE HE SAID WITH MIKE, IT’S NOT AS HUMID AS HE EXPECTED IT TO BE. IT FEELS NICE. IT’S A BREEZE AND NOT THAT HUMID. NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL.>>Mike: PREKI, YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH HIM WITH YOUR TIME IN TORONTO.>>Lee: PREKI WAS FANTASTIC. HE WON COACH OF THE YEAR. IN 2007 HE WON THE TITLE WITH COACH WITH SACRAMENTO REPUBLIC IN 2014. HE’S ONE OF THOSE HARD WORKING COACHES. YOU HAVE TO WORK FOR THIS GUY. ONE THING I REMEMBER ABOUT HIM IS HOW MUCH HE WOULD MAKE A TORONTO FC RUN. YOU WERE FIT IF YOU WERE ON THAT TEAM. WHEN YOU THOUGHT TRAINING WAS OVER, YOU HAD FOUR MORE LAPS ON THE PITCH TO DO.>>Mike: SPRING IS COMING TO AN END HERE IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE AS WE HEAD INTO SUMMER. WHAT THAT MEANS, THE SUN WILL BE A LITTLE BIT OF A FACTOR FOR THE FIRST FEW MINUTES OF THAT GAME. THE FIELD RUNS NOT QUITE STRAIGHT EAST TO WEST, SOME OF THE BUILDINGS ARE IN THE WAY. ST. LOUIS WON THE TOSS. THEY OPTED TO DEFEND WHAT WILL BE THE SUN GOING FROM RIGHT TO LEFT. THEY WILL WHERE RIGHT. ROWDIES IN GREEN AND YELLOW. IT WILL BE MATT PICKENS WHO HAS TO KEEP HIS EYES OPEN AT THE START AS THEY ARE SHADED A LITTLE BIT FROM THE SUN.>>Lee: THIS IS NORMALLY WHAT WE SEE AT THE BEGINNING OF A MATCH FOR THE ROWDIES DEPENDING ON THE COIN TOSS. THE ROWDIES PREFER TO TAKE THAT RIGHT-HAND SIDE OF THE SPINACH ON YOUR SCREEN. IT’S FOR THAT REASON. MATT PICKENS PUTTING HIS HAND UP TO SHADE HIMSELF FROM THE SUN.>>Mike: AS THE ROWDIES WITH ALEX MORRELL, THE STARTING WHISTLE. ROWDIES GET THE BALL. MORRELL GETS IT BACK TO SAVAGE WITH THIS APPEARANCE TONIGHT IS MOVED INTO SECOND ON THE MODERN ALL TIME LIST PASSING TO YAMADA. THAT BALL DEFLECTED OFF ST. LOUIS. YOU SEE THE NUMBER OF GAMES PLAYED. ROWDIES WITH THREE MORE LEAGUE PLAY GAMES THAN ST. LOUIS.>>Lee: RECENTLY IT WAS ABOUT CONCEDED. THEY STARTED THE SEASON VERY WELL. THEY HAVEN’T SCORED MANY GOALS IN THEIR LAST FOUR GAMES. THEY BARELY GOT THROUGH THEIR U.S. MATCH AGAINST WICHITA. IT HAD TO GO TO EXTRA TIME TO WIN 4-3 AGAINST A MUCH LOWER DIVISION TEAM.>>Mike: THAT EARLY ON DEFLECTION, HE WAS UP FOR A MOMENT.>>Lee: HE’S A BIG PHYSICAL PRESENCE FOR ST. LOUIS. HE’S BEEN FANTASTIC AT GETTING VOLESKY INVOLVED IN MATCHES. SIX GOALS BETWEEN THE TWO STRIKERS TONIGHT.>>Mike: LONG FOR PATERSON. ST. LOUIS ABLE TO RUN IT DOWN. THAT WAS PLEWA. HE HAS TO SEND IT BACK UP TOWARDS MIDFIELD. FIRST ONE THERE IS SCHAFER. SCHAFER WILL GET IT BACK. PLAYED TOWARDS THE CORNER. AND NOT KEPT IN BOUNDS. LESLIE SHARPY IS A USF ALUM. I THINK WE HEARD THE CROWD, A LITTLE ROAR FOR LESLIE SHARPY IN THE INTRODUCTIONS.>>Lee: THE FANS, THEY KNOW SOCCER QUITE WELL. A DEDICATE THE BUNCH. A LOT OF PLAYERS THAT COME BACK GET NOTICED HERE.>>Mike: CHARPIE WILL INTERCEPT THAT BALL. HE WILL SEND IT UP. UNCHALLENGED IS STOJKOV. RECOVERING IS SAFERRAGE. SAVAGE NOW IN SECOND AS HE PASSES TO YAMADA. GEORGI HRISTOV IS THE ALL-TIME LEADER, HE GOT THAT RECORD EARLIER IN THE YEAR. HE’S BEEN ON THE BENCH TONIGHT. WE EXPECT TO SEE HIM AT SOME POINT IN TIME. NOT IN THE STARTING LINEUP TONIGHT. THEY HAVE BEEN GOOD AT HOME AS WELL. FIVE OF SIX GAMES HAVE RESULTED IN THEM WALKING AWAY A WINNER.>>Lee: AND THAT WAS A BIG DIFFERENCE LAST YEAR WITH THE ROWDIES.>>Mike: PATERSON WAS THE TARGET. GOES OVER PATERSON.>>Lee: TOO MANY DRAWS LAST YEAR AT HOME DROPPING THOSE POINTS. THEY DID MANAGE TO PLAY WELL ON THE ROAD. YOU GET DRAWS. YOU DON’T EXPECT TO WIN ALL OF THEM. IF YOU TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS AT HOME, THAT IS THE BIG DIFFERENCE THAT THE ROWDIES NEED TO IN FRONT OF THE HOME FANS HERE IN L.A.>>Mike: BALL LOOKING UP FOR PATERSON. STOJKOV SIDE TO SIDE. THAT ONE IS SENT UP. WALLS WITH HIM. HE WILL COME AWAY WITH IT. PLAYING IT INSIDE. SENT BACK ACROSS. HERE’S PLEWA UP THE FIELD. CHARPIE ON THE FAR SIDE. CHARPIE LEADS THE TEAM FOR ST. LOUIS IN MINUTES PLAYED THIS YEAR. CHARPIE IS TAKEN DOWN BY MARCEL SCHAFER.>>Lee: HERE’S A LOOK AT MATT PICKENS, NATIVE OF WASHINGTON, MISSOURI IN THE ST. LOUIS AREA. SOME FANS WATCHING UP THERE. FAMILIAR WITH HIM. HIS KA HERE THROUGH — HIS CAREER, NOW WITH COLORADO RAPIDS. ST. LOUIS, IT IS A DEDICATED SOCCER DESTINATION, MIKE. HOME, OF COURSE, TO THE MACK HER MAN AWARD TO THE TOP COLLEGIATE PLAYERS IN THE NATION. I HAD THE PLEASURE OF GOING TO ONE OF THOSE AWARD CEREMONIES EARLY.>>Mike: I THINK THE FOUL WAS ON LEO FERNANDES. A LATE CAUTION WAS SHOWN. BUT I THINK — I DON’T UNDERSTAND THE LATENESS OF THAT. I DON’T DISAGREE WITH IT. IT’S A CAUTIONABLE OFFENSE TO START WITH. BUT AFTER TALKING TO LEO FERNANDES, DIDN’T GET ANYTHING. SHE GOES BACK OVER AND SEES THE INJURED PLAYER, CHARPIE. HE ASKED AND SHE OBLIGED. CAUTION HERE IN THE SIXTH MINUTE. SO ST. LOUIS HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEND THIS ONE ACROSS. IT IS CLEARED AWAY BY FERNANDES. AS AEDAN STANLEY SENDS IT BACK TO THE BOX. DARNELL KING NOW AND THAT ONE IS DEFLECTED. IT WILL GO OUT. IT WILL BE A THROW-IN. AFTER THE ACTION, CHECK OUT THE MOVIE ACTION ON THIS TV TAMPA BAY. ALMOST A FOUL THROW THERE. THEY LOOK TO GO LONG. IT IS CLEARED AWAY BY THE ROWDIES. COLE WILL EARN THE THROW. MORRELL. COLLINS UNDER PRESSURE. PICKENS WILL HAVE TO SEND IT OUT TOWARD THE FIELD AND TOWARDS FERNANDES. CHARPIE COMES AWAY WITH THIS ONE. WALLS ABLE TO TURN. WILL SEND IT WIDE. THERE’S SEBASTIAN DALGAARD, GET THE START TONIGHT. NOW CHARPIE AGAIN.>>Lee: GOOD START EARLY FOR ST. LOUIS FC. BUT NOT TO BE SURPRISED BECAUSE WE JUST HAVEN’T SEEN THE ROWDIES COME OUT TO QUICK STARTS VERY OFTEN. OPPORTUNITIES WILL COME, LET THE GAME FLOW INTO SOME SENSE OF JUST BEING MORE OF A TWO-SIDED AFFAIR OUT THERE. ST. LOUIS WANTS TO COME OUT STRONG HERE. ROWDIES WANT TO DEFEND THAT. WAIT UNTIL IT SLOWS DOWN TO START GETTING THEIR OPPORTUNITIES. THAT’S WHAT THEY HAVE DONE MANY TIMES THIS SEASON.>>Mike: OFF-SIDE WAS THE CALL. SEND THIS IN FOR PATERSON, TRIES TO FLIP IT ON. INSTEAD IT GOES OVER. IT WILL BE A GOAL KICK. LOOKS LIKE MORE OF A 4, 3, 4 FOR ST. LOUIS TONIGHT. TAKE THE GOAL KICK. THIS WILL COME TO DALGAARD, PLAYING ON THE LEFT SIDE NOW. WILL EARN THE FREE KICK.>>Lee: FOUL CALLED ON ALEX MORRELL. I LIKE WHAT WE SAW OF HIM IN THE U.S. OPEN CUP GAME IN THE UNDER-23s. HE BRINGS A LOT OF SPEED TO THE OUTSIDE. HE LIKES TO MAKE THOSE DIAGONAL RUNS IN THE BOX. HE CONTRIBUTED IN THE MATCH IN THE U.S. OPEN CUP VICTORY.>>Mike: STOJKOV SENDS IT OUT WIDE. LEO FERNANDES ABLE TO CUT INSIDE. PATERSON, WELL, ACTUALLY NANCHOFF ON THE RUN. PATERSON WITH THE PLAY. JOE COLE GETS A TALKING TO.>>Heather: YOU GUYS WERE TALKING ABOUT ALEX MORRELL. YESTERDAY AFTER HEAD COACH STUART CAMPBELL NAMED THE STARTING LINEUP, ALEX MORRELL SAID HE BLOCKED OUT A LITTLE BIT WHEN HE HEARD HIS NAME. HE WAS EXCITED TO BE NAMED A STARTER. HE’S LOOKING TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE OPPORTUNITY STARTING IN TONIGHT’S GAME.>>Mike: AND AN OPPORTUNITY IT IS. CREATE SOME DANGER. THAT ONE IS OVER THE HEAD. IT’S GOING TOO FAR. IT WILL BE A GOAL KICK FOR THE ROWDIES. WE WELCOME THOSE WATCHING ON ESTRELLA TV TODAY. AS WE PASS THE 10 MINUTE MARK, SCORELESS HERE AT AL LANG STADIUM. MATT PICKENS LOOKING INTO THE SIDE. SAW JOSE LAST YEAR AGAINST THE ROWDIES. IT’S HEADED UP BY PLEWA. TAKEN AWAY, THIS IS FERNANDES. COLE WIDE, TO PATERSON. PATERSON AND FERNANDES WORKING TOGETHER NOW TOWARD THE CORNER. SENT ACROSS. CONTROL BY WES CHARPIE. HE WILL PLAY IT LONG. VOLESKY CAN’T CONTROL IT. PICKENS LOOKING FOR MORRELL. MORRELL IN THE BATTLE WITH STANLEY, GOES OFF STANLEY, AND HE WILL GET IT BACK NOW. CABALCETA. LOOKING LONG. CABALCETA BOUNCES OVER. NOT A GOOD CLEARANCE. NOT CONTROLLED WELL THERE BY ALIHODZIC. COMBINED ON A COUPLE OF FOULS. WE’LL SEE WHETHER OR NOT WES CHARPIE, LOOKS LIKE THE CARD IS COMING OUT OF THE POCKET. WAS IT RETALIATION IN THE SENSE OF THE OTHER ONE? IT IS. WES CHARPIE WITH A CAUTION, FERNANDES ITS WITH A CAUTION. THOSE TWO WILL BE TANGLED UP MOST OF THE NIGHT. ROWDIES HAVE A FREE KICK, JUST OVER 30-YARD OUT, A FAIRLY DANGEROUS OPPORTUNITY HERE.>>Lee: HERE’S ANOTHER LOOK AT IT. WES CHARPIE IS LATE ON THAT CALL. THERE HAS BEEN THAT BATTLE. DANIELLE IS NOT HAVING ANY EARLY O IN — ON.>>Mike: JOE COLE IS WITH NANCHOFF. THE WALL BEING MARKED OFF. IT WILL BE FIVE YARDS PAST THE 18th. LET’S SAY 33 YARDS OUT. NANCHOFF OVER THE BALL. COLE LOOKING TO GO ON NET AND HAS TO TIP IT OVER. LOOKED TO BE PLAYING THE BALL GOING INTO THE BOX. COLE GOES ON GOAL AND ABLE TO GET JUST UNDERNEATH HIS CROSS BAR.>>GOOD POSITIONING BY ADAM AS HE DIVES AND FALLS BACK AND ABLE TO GET THAT WITH HIS TRAILING RIGHT ARM AND TIP IT OVER THE CROSS BAR.>>Mike: MICHAEL NANCHOFF WITH THE CORNER KICK, IT WILL BE AN IN-SWINGER. TOWARD THE BACK POST. COLLINS IS THERE HEADS IT DOWN, HEADED AWAY. LOOSE BALL. TO SAVAGE, STILL FREE IN THE BOX. MORRELL HAS GOT WIDE. NANCHOFF AGAIN, GOOD PRESSURE BY ST. LOUIS WILL FORCE HIM OUT. MORRELL STEPPED IN, TAKEN AWAY.>>Lee: GOOD OPPORTUNITY THERE FOR THE ROWDIES. THEIR FIRST BIG SCORING CHANCE OF THIS FIRST HALF.>>Mike: TOWARDS THE BOX, PATERSO OFF THE CHEST. HEADED DOWN BY ST. LOUIS. IT WILL GO OUT. IT WILL BE ANOTHER CORNER KICK FOR THE ROWDIES. NANCHOFF WILL DO THIS ONE. COLLINS HAD A FREE HEADER. WE’LL SEE WHAT THE ROWDIES CHOOSE TO DO. THEY WILL PLAY IT SHORT. MORRELL AROUND IT. HEADS WERE TURNED. DEFLECTED. LEO FERNANDES RUNNING AWAY FROM THE NET. CABALCETA. COLE. TAKEN AWAY BY ST. LOUIS. THEY GOT A LITTLE OPPORTUNITY AS WHITE SHIRTS BREAKING OUT ON THE COUNTER-ATTACK.>>Lee: HE WAS TRYING TO TRACK BACK. HE’S GOING FALL AND GO AROUND. LOOSE BALL STILL AND IT’S UP. IT WILL BE A CORNER KICK. STOJKOV CAME IN, THE COUNTER-ATTACK VERY DANGEROUS FOR ST. LOUIS.>>Lee: GREAT COUNTER-ATTACK BY ST. LOUIS FC. YOU SEE HIM GETTING BACK. YOU SEE HIM AT THE MIDDLE OF THE PARK. NOW HE HAS TO START TRACKING BACK. THIS WAS NOT PLAYED WELL BY THE DEFENSE AS DARNELL KING HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO CLEAR. HE DOESN’T. BY THAT TIME HE COULD GET TO IT BY THE TIME STOJKOV COULD GET TO IT. HE DIDN’T HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY ON GOAL. THEY HAVE EVEN GIVEN A GOAL KICK TO THE ROWDIES.>>Mike: STOJKOV’S COMPLAINT. THE GOAL KICK, ROWDIES LOOK TO SEND IT UP. OPPORTUNITIES FROM BOTH TEAMS AS MORRELL WILL RUN DOWN THE LOOSE BALL. SAVAGE. NANCHOFF LOOKING TO SLOT IT THROUGH. CHARPIE STEPS IN FRONT OF THE BALL FOR FERNANDES. ST. LOUIS WILL HAVE IT.>>Lee: OPENING POSSESSION MOMENTS BY ST. LOUIS FC. YOU ARE RIGHT, MIKE, THIS GAME HAS OPENED UP A LOT MORE AS THE ROWDIES SEEM TO BE PUSHING HIGHER IN CLOSING DOWN ST. LOUIS FC AND CAUSED SOME TURNOVERS.>>Mike: HERE’S DARNELL KING. NOW NANCHOFF. MARCEL SCHAFER. ROWDIES UNDER PRESSURE. COLLINS GOING BACK TO THEIR OWN GOAL. ST. LOUIS STEPPING UP THE PRESSURE. THEY WILL FORCE THE DEFLECTION AND NOW A TURNOVER. HERE’S DALGAARD. WALLS WITH IT. WALLS LOOKING TO GO BACK ACROSS. HEADED AWAY BY DARNELL KING. IT WILL GO OUT AND THE LATEST NEWS IS ON SIRIUS XM. TUNE IN MONDAYS AT 9:00 P.M. EASTERN ON CHANNEL 85. THEY WILL AIR THE USLC GAME OF THE WEEK. CHECK FOR DATES AND TIMES. WE PLAY THE 18th MINUTE. SCORELESS BETWEEN THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES AND ST. LOUIS FC HERE ON THIS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. PICKENS SHIELDING HIS EYES JUST A LITTLE BIT ALMOST OUT OF THE SUN, NOT QUITE. WE’LL SEE PROBABLY THE ROWDIES’ NEXT GAME AS PATERSON CALLED FOR CLEATS UP ON WALLS. THE LONGEST DAY OF THE YEAR BEING JUNE 21, ROWDIES ONLY ONE MORE HOME GAME PRIOR TO THAT DATE. THEN WE’LL SEE EVERYTHING SHORTENIG AS WE HEAD TO THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR. HERE IS CABALCETA. PLAYED TOWARDS THE CORNER. MKANDAWIRE. DOWN THE LINE. THAT WILL GO OVER THE LINE, BE A THROW-IN.>>Lee: IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE, MIKE, HOW THIS GAME PROGRESSES, IF FATIGUE SETS IN FOR THE ROWDIES WITH THE U.S. OPEN CUP, GOING TO TORONTO AND THEN ROCHESTER. THE GOOD NEWS FROM TORONTO TO ROCHESTER, A QUICK 30 MINUTE FLIGHT OVER LAKE ONTARIO. NOT LIKE THEY HAD TO MAKE BIG LONG FLIGHTINGS IN BETWEEN THEIR ROAD GAMES. BUT THEY HAVE TO COME BACK FROM ROCHESTER. THEY TRAINED BRIEFLY ON FRIDAY JUST TO BE ABLE TO GIVE THEM ENOUGH REST TO BE ABLE TO READY FOR THIS MATCH TONIGHT.>>Mike: SENT TOWARD THE CORNER. NOW SCHAFER. IF HE CAN KEEP IT IN, HE HAS AN OPPORTUNITY WITH NUMBERSMENT AT LEAST EARN THE THROW AS THEY WERE GOING THROUGH, THEY QUICKLY LOOK. NOW MORRELL. ST. LOUIS HAS THEM COVERED. OPPORTUNITY WITH MORRELL, COLE, PATERSON. PATERSON EARNING THE THROW. COLE, ABLE TO TURN. JOE COLE. PATERSON, MORRELL. TAKE IT INSIDE. IT’S GOING TO FIND COLE. COLE ON-SIDE. IT WILL BE DEFLECTED AND OFF.>>Lee: HE TRIED TO CUT IT BACK, GOT BLOCKED BY ST. LOUIS DEFENDING WELL. THAT VISION BY JOE COLE, HE’S NOT GOING TO WASTE THE BALL, HE’S GOING TO TRY TO GET IT TO A PLAYER IN GREEN AND GOLD.>>Mike: HEADED UP AND AWAY. LEO FERNANDES, FIRST ONE TO IT. CHARPIE. BALL GOES THROUGH HIM. MAYBE AN OBSTRUCTION, BUT NO CALL ON THAT ONE.>>Lee: TEND TO THINK THAT’S CLEAR. RIGHT THROUGH THE LEGS. AND HE’S BASICALLY JUST, OH, YEAH, THAT’S AN EASY CALL RIGHT THERE. AND THAT’S CHARPIE AGAIN WHO IS ALREADY ON A YELLOW CARD.>>Lee: SENT ACROSS, MKANDAWIRE ABLE TO HEAD IT AWAY.>>Lee: HE’S DONE MORE THAN JUST STAND UP FERNANDES. HE MOVED TO HIS RIGHT AND MADE SURE HE GOT A PIECE OF HIM.>>Mike: AND FOR VIEWERS IN TAMPA BAY, THIS TV HAS A CHANCE TO WIN A CONSOLE AND A COPY OF FIFA 2017. WATCH ROWDIES HOME GAMES ON THIS TV AND LOOK FOR THE CLUE. GO TO MOR/TV.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION. KING. ACROSS THE FIELD FOR SCHAFER. NOW COLE. COLE ABLE TO TURN. DEFLECTION. IT WILL BE A THROW-IN. SCHAFER’S CROSS BLOCKED BY CHARPIE. DEFLECTED TO SAVAGE. ABLE TO KEEP IT. OUT WIDE TO FERNANDES. PUNCHED AWAY. IT’S NOT OUT OF DANGER YET AS COLE ON THE TOP OF 18, CLEARED AWAY BY AEDAN STANLEY.>>Lee: GOOD JOB, ANOTHER GOOD BALL INTO THE SIX YARD BOX BY THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES. DIVES IN AND PUNCHES THAT AWAY.>>Mike: SO THE FREE KICK WILL GO FOR THE ROWDIES. NANCHOFF WILL WAIT. COLLINS AND MKANDAWIRE UP FROM THEIR CENTER BACK POSITIONS. LOOK TO SEND THIS ONE UP TO THE AREA. LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE SOMETHING MORE. AS NANCHOFF’S PASS FOR TEN YARDS, WILL DRIFT BACK UP. STOJKOV, JUST A LITTLE BIT. NANCHOFF, TOWARD THE BACK POST. LOOKING FOR COLLINS. ABLE TO HEAD IT BACK. NOT ABLE TO GET A LOT ON IT. IT’S TAKEN, SENT UP THE FIELD BY ALIHODZIC. IT WILL BE ALEX MORRELL. HERE’S WALLS WITH A LITTLE SPACE. CHARPIE FROM HIS RIGHT BACK POSITION, DROPS IT IN. A BAD BALL BEHIND HIM. NOW SENT BACK. PATERSON AND COLE. COLE WIDE OUT FOR FERNANDES. FERNANDES IN LINE. NOW DOUBLE TEAMED. HE’S ABLE TO FIND SCHAFER. SCHAFER WITH A LITTLE SPACE. THREE BODIES IN. IT’S HEADED AWAY BY STANLEY. BACK OUT TO FERNANDES. ROWDIES WILL SEND ANOTHER BALL IN. THIS IS HEADED AWAY BY PLEWA.>>TWO GOOD BALLS INTO THE BOX. THE FIRST ONE BY MARCEL SCHAFER. THIS BACK FOUR FOR ST. LOUIS HAS THEIR WORK CUT OUT FOR THEM. THEY HAVE YET TO MAKE A MISTAKE. BUT IF THE PRESSURE CONTINUES BY THE ROWDIES, IT’S GOING TO BE DIFFICULT TO DEFEND THIS ALL NIGHT LONG.>>Mike: PATERSON IS WHISTLED FOR A FOUL, THIS TIME ON A SHIRT PULL. THAT IS HIS THIRD FOUL. HE’S SAYING NO MORE. OFFICIALLY, ONLY ONE CAUTION EACH TEAM. WES CHARPIE FOR ST. LOUIS. LAW YES FERNANDES — LEO FERNANDES FOR THE ROWDIES. OVER COLLINS. HEADED DOWN NICELY FOR VOLESKY. VOLESKY GOING AT MKANDAWIRE. ABLE TO KEEP IT IN BOUND. HE WILL FIND THE OPEN MAN AS% THEY WORK IT OUT SLOWLY. NOW CHARPIE HEADS IT BACK.>>Lee: SOLID WORK FOR MKANDAWIRE. THE FACT YOU CAN SLIDE IN AND WHERE THE CAPTAIN BAND A LOT LAST SEASON.>>Mike: OVER THE TOP FOR COLE. SLIGHTLY BEHIND HIM ON THE TOUCH. NOT ABLE TO SEND IT IN FRONT OF HIM. MORRELL, PUSHED CHARPIE FROM BEHIND. THAT LOOKED LIKE A DELIBERATE FOUL. I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS CLUMSINESS OR A SHOVE. YOU SEE THE ROWDIES GOT THE TURNOVER FROM MORRELL. COLE TRIED TO PUSH IN FRONT AND COULDN’T.>>Lee: ALMOST HIT THE FRONT OF HIS SHIN AWKWARDLY AS HE HAD THAT RIGHT LEG BACK. IF HE COULD HAVE BROUGHT THAT FORWARD, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY FOR JOE COLE.>>Mike: MORRELL ON IT. MORRELL LOOKING FOR PATERSON. PATERSON GETS THE BALL. HE’S IN ON NET THAT. ONE DEFLECTS OFF OF ST. LOUIS. IT WILL BE A CORNER KICK AS CABALCETA ALMOST PUT IT ON HIS OWN NET INSTEAD OF OUT FOR A CORNER.>>Lee: THE PRESSURE CONTINUES TO MOUNT ON ST. LOUIS FC. YOU CAN SEE THE CUT IN THERE AND THE GOOD JOB BY CABALCETA TO KNOCK THAT AWAY. A LOT OF DEFENDING.>>Mike: NANCHOFF TOWARD THE BACK POST. HEADED DOWN BY MKANDAWIRE. IT WILL BE A CORNER KICK ON THE FAR SIDE. JOE COLE IS OVER THERE. THEY MAY TAKE THIS ONE. THEY ARE GOING TO LET NANCHOFF MAKE THE 70-YARD RUN, OR LIGHT JOG, SHALL WE SAY, ONE CORNER TO THE OTHER. THIS TIME IT WILL BE AN OUTSWINGER FOR THE LEFT-FOODED NANCHOFF. BACK POST IS COLLINS. THEY ARE GOING TO LOOK TO GO BACK FOR MKANDAWIRE. THAT IS HEADED UP BY CABALCETA. IT WILL BE OFF SAVAGE.>>Lee: RIGHT NOW THE ST. LOUIS DEFENDERS ON ALL THESE CORNER KICKS ARE DOING A BETTER JOB OF BEING THE FIRST ONES TO GET AHEAD TO THAT BALL AND CLEAR IT AWAY.>>Mike: ROWDIES CARELESS IN THAT AREA, AS THAT ONE HIT THE POCKET. ST. LOUIS WILL GET THE BALL BACK AND RECOVERY BY DARNELL KING WITH MORRELL. GOOD PRESSURE BY ST. LOUIS FORCE AS TURNOVER. LOOKING LONG. MKANDAWIRE. AGAIN, A WELCOME TO THOSE WATCHING ON ESTRELLA TV. OFFSIDE IS THE CALL AS VOLESKY IS IN THAT POSITION. GOOD LOOK AT PREKI, ST. LOUIS COACH. OUR DIRECTOR KEEPS WANTING US TO SAY THAT LAST NAME. I WILL KEEP GOING WITH PREKI.>>Lee: I’M GLAD HIS SON ISN’T GOING INTO THE GAME, WE WOULD BE FORCED TO SAY IT. IT’S A BLESSING FOR US. HE WAS A FANTASTIC PLAYER, MLS MVP, REPRESENTED THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WELL, HAD A FAMOUS GOAL AS THEY BEAT BRAZIL 1-0 IN A GOLD CUP. SO HE’S BEEN A GREAT PLAYER, A LOT OF ROOTS IN KANSAS CITY AREA, NOW COACHING FOR ST. LOUIS.>>Mike: IF THE SON COMES IN, I WILL CALL HIM PREKI TWO, T-W-O. SAVAGE AND NANCHOFF WORKING TOGETHER. THEY WILL GIVE IT BACK TO MKANDAWIRE. NOW OUT TO KING. COLE, HE WILL PLAY IT WIDE TO KING. NUMBERS ON THE NEAR SIDE TO MORRELL. HE WILL CUT IT INSIDE. LOOK FOR THE OPEN MARCEL SCHAFER. SCHAFER HAS A CANON, HE’S GOING WITH THE CROSS ON THE BACK POST. MORRELL SEND IT ACROSS. DROPS IT. NO ONE IS THERE. MORRELL PROBABLY WOULD DO MORE WITH IT. ALMOST GAVE THE ROWDIES A GIFT, BUT ABLE TO COVER IT UP.>>Lee: THE ROWDIES DIDN’T EXPECT THAT. THEY STARTED TO WALK AWAY AFTER MORRELL PUTS IT BACK IN. THAT ONE HE DROPS GOES OFF HIS KNEES. LUCK YES DIDN’T GO TOO FAR. YOU SEE THE LOOK OF CONCERN.>>Mike: KNUCKLED ON MORRELL. DIDN’T GET A LOT ON IT. JUST THE TIMING OF IT. SCHAFER. ROWDIES INTO THE 32nd MINUTE. HE WILL GRILL IT OUT SHORT. ALIHODZIC WORKING WITH WALLS IN THE MIDDLE. WALLS GETS IT BACK. ALIHODZIC, SENT ACROSS. SCHAFER. UNDER SLIGHT PRESSURE, SENDS IT UP. WALLS IS UNCONTESTED. PATERSON WANTED TO GO. YOU WANT TO GET CALLED FOR THE FOUL KNOWING YOU HAD THAT VERBAL WARNING AT THIS POINT. SAVE THE BOOK THAT IS IMMINENT AT SOME POINT FOR SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE WARNED TO THEM, YOU WOULD THINK. HERE’S WALLS. KING HEADS IT DOWN. DALGAARD. IN TOWARD THE CORNER, OFF-SIDE ON THE NEAR SIDE. THE USL IS ONE OF THE MOST PROMINENT SECOND DIVISION PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE NOTICE WORLD, FEATURING SOME OF THE GAME’S TOP TALENT AND RISING STARS. VISIT USL SOCCER.COM AND FOLLOW THE LEAGUE ON TWITTER, @USL. I GUESS THE BALL ROLLED OVER THE LINE. THE ROWDIES WILL TAKE THE GOAL KICK SINCE THE RUN BY VOLESKY WAS STOPPED. THERE’S A GOAL KICK. PICKENS TAKES IT, LOOKING FOR PATERSON. NANCHOFF. MICHAEL NANCHOFF HAD A FEW STARTS FOR THE ROWDIES, BUT IT HASN’T BEEN IN THE HOLDING POSITION. JUSTIN CHAVEZ CAME DOWN WITH A TOE INJURY IN TORONTO. HE’S MISSING A LITTLE TIME. MARTIN VINGAARD GETTING A BREAK AS WE TALKED ABOUT THAT ROWDIES’ SCHEDULE, VERY MUCH NEEDED. YOU HAVE THE EXPERIENCE OF A SAVAGE AND NANCHOFF THAT CAN STEP INTO THAT, IT’S A GOOD THING FOR THE ROWDIES.>>Lee: IT’S A GOOD THING. THOSE ARE GUYS THAT COULD BE STARTERS ON ANY OTHER TEAM AS WELL T DOES SHOW THE DEPTH AND EXPERIENCE ON THIS TAMPA BAY ROWDIES SIDE. THEY ARE DOING A GREAT JOB OF MOVING ST. LOUIS FROM LEFT TO RIGHT.>>Mike: THAT WAS A BAD TURNOVER BY MKANDAWIRE. SAVAGE COVERS UP FOR MKANDAWIRE. PLAYED TOWARDS PATERSON. WILL HE BE ABLE TO KEEP IT IN? HE WILL. THE TACKLE, STANLEY COMES ACROSS. IT WILL BE A THROW.>>Lee: GREAT EFFORT BY PATERSON. IT WAS TOO HEAVY TO CATCH UP TO IT AND FORCE THE THROW.>>Mike: MARCEL SCHAFER ON THE FAR SIDE. KING. KING WITH SOME WORK ON IT, WILL GIVE BACK TO MORRELL. MORRELL CUTTING INSIDE AS NANCHOFF, WHO WILL SWITCH THE FIELD, OUT TO SCHAFER. SCHAFER, LEFT FOOT, TOWARD THE BACK POST. MORRELL ON IT. LET’S IT RUN. ONE ON ONE WITH STANLEY ON THE NEAR SIDE. SEND IT ACROSS, HEADED DOWN. LOOSE BALL NANCHOFF. HE’S GOING TO TEE IT UP. STOPPED BY PATERSON. HIS SHOT WILL GO WELL WIDE. GOAL KICK FOR ST. LOUIS.>>Lee: YOU SEE PATERSON PUT HIS HAND UP. I THINK HE’S FRUSTRATED HE GOT IN FRONT OF THAT ONE. SEE IF THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN A CLEAR PATH. I THINK HE WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE ANYWAY IF YOU SEE THE WAY THE BALL WAS GOING.>>Mike: I THINK HE WOULD HAVE MADE THE INITIAL SAVE. WE DID SEE HIM BOBBLE. DIDN’T HAVE EYES FOR A CORNER, YOU ARE RIGHT.>>Lee: STILL PATERSON DOING HIS BEST BECAUSE HE STOPPED THAT ONE TO TRY TO MAKE THE QUICK TURN. JUST GOT UNDERNEATH THAT BALL AND SENT IT OVER THE BAR.>>Mike: NANCHOFF, FREE KICK WILL GO ST. LOUIS’ WAY. OUT TO PLEWA. PLEWA. IT WILL GO OUT AND BE A THROW-IN FOR ROWDIES. FOR VIEWERS IN TAMPA BAY CATCH THE ROWDIES ALL SEASON ON THIS TV. FERNANDES ABLE TO GO THROUGH THE LEGS, SECOND BALL TACKLED AWAY. NOW OPPORTUNITY, VOLESKY TIED UP. ROWDIES ON THE ADVANTAGE, ABLE TO COME AWAY. SCHAFER TOWARDS COLE. COLE, ONE ON ONE OUT WIDE. JOE COLE SENDS THAT ONE ACROSS. AND IT WILL BE YET ANOTHER CORNER KICK FOR THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES. I BELIEVE THAT MAY BE SIX FOR THE HALF. THEY HAVE BEEN ACCUMULATING THE CHANCES. ASIDE FROM A COUPLE OF THEM, ST. LOUIS HAS DONE A GOOD JOB DEFENDING A COUPLE. THERE HAVE BEEN OPPORTUNITIES.>>Lee: THERE HAVE BEEN. THE ROWDIES HAVE BEEN FRUSTRATED WHEN YOU GET THIS MANY SET PIECES, THEY TRAIN SO OFTEN ON THIS.>>Mike: THEY WILL PLAY A QUICK SHORT TO COLE. HE WILL SEND IT IN. LOOSE BALL. CLEARED AWAY. THAT WAS DALGAARD WHO GOT IT OUT. THE LOOK FOR VOLESKY WHO DOESN’T HAVE A LOT OF HELP, TRY TO CREATE IT. A GOOD TACKLE BY DARNELL KING. KING INTO SCHAFER. NOW THE ROWDIES WILL LOOK TO GET THE NUMBERS BACK, ST. LOUIS STILL HAS EIGHT SHIRTS BEHIND THE BALL. MORRELL. BAD TOUCH BY MORRELL. BUT IT MAY COME OUT TO HIS ADVANTAGE. HE WILL GET WHISTLED FOR THE FOUL AS STANLEY STEPPED IN FRONT OF HIM. IT APPEARED STANLEY STEPPED IN FRONT BUT WENT DOWN. MORRELL WILL GET A CAUTION FOR THAT. I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S FOR KICKING THE BALL AWAY AFTERWARD. BUT CERTAINLY DEBATABLE.>>Lee: FOR SLAMMING THE BALL. NEVER A FOUL ON MORRELL. HE’S BEING PLAYED OUT. THERE IS NO WAY STANLEY IS PLAYING THIS BALL. IT’S IN THE RUN OF PLAY. MORRELL HAS EVERY RIGHT TO GET TO THAT BALL, HE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN THAT BALL IF IT WASN’T FOR STANLEY. YOU CAN’T LET THIS GAME GET OUT OF HAND EVERY TIME THERE IS A FOUL. CAN’T BE A CARD EVERY TIME. RIGHT NOW EVERYTHING IS BEING EXAGGERATED. NOW PLAYERS ON EITHER TEAM DON’T KNOW. THEY ARE GOING TO BE HESITANT GOING INTO A CHALLENGE BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO CLUE AS THE CARD IS GOING TO COME OUT. WE HAVE SEEN THREE YELLOWS IN THE FIRST HALF.>>>>Mike: IT WAS FOR THE BOUNCE IN THE BALL. NO FOUL. STANLEY STEPPED IN FRONT AND STUMBLED. BUT THE LINESMAN WAVING THE FLAG.>>Lee: HE COULD HAVE EASILY WAVED IT ON STANLEY.>>Mike: COLE WRAPPED AROUND. DANGEROUS FREE KICK. COLE HAD ARMS AROUND THE SHOULDERS AS PLEWA PULLS HIM DOWN. THE ROWDIES WITH A CHANCE, THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO STRAIGHT ON NET FROM AN OPPORTUNITY FROM 26-YARD OUT. THAT WILL BE A CAUTION ON PLEWA.>>Lee: I DON’T SEE THIS GOING 90 WITHOUT A PLAYER BEING SENT OFF.>>Mike: ALIHODZIC IS ON THE CAUTION. IT APPEARS TO BE FOR DECENT. NANCHOFF AND SCHAFER, ON THE LEFT FOOT. NANCHOFF IS TEEING THIS ONE UP. THE WALL WILL BE MARKED OFF, TWO YARDS INSIDE THE BOX, MAYBE THREE YARD INSIDE THE BOX. WE’LL SAY THAT’S AT THIS POINT 15, 25 YARDS OUT, MICHAEL NANCHOFF.>>Lee: TRYING TO BACK THE LINE UP. I THINK THIS IS PLENTY GET UP AND DOWN.>>Mike: THIS IS THE PERFECT RANGE IF THEY GET IT. SCHAFER AND NANCHOFF. AT THIS POINT THEY ARE BREAKING THE WALL UP. WE’LL SEE IF PLEWA IS GOING. NOW PLEWA ON THIS THING MAY GET ANOTHER CAUTION. WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS HERE. PLEWA IS SAYING IT’S TOO FAR. IT LOOKS ABOUT RIGHT. NOW SHE’S STEPPING IT BACK. AT THIS POINT SHE ACTUALLY MARKED THE LINE. NOW AT THIS POINT LETTING THEM GO BACK TO WHERE THEY ORIGINALLY WERE. AND IT WILL BE NANCHOFF, OVER, JUST WIDE OF THE GOAL. THAT BALL GOT UP AND DOWN. IT ALMOST BOUNCED ACROSS THE GOAL LINE, BUT IT WAS WIDE.>>Lee: ANOTHER EXCELLENT OPPORTUNIY. WE SEE FROM BEHIND THE GOAL HERE AND BOY, OH, BOY, THERE WAS PLENTY OF ROOM FOR NANCHOFF. HE HAD THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF SPIN ON THAT BALL. IF HE SPINS THAT, AIMS TO THE CENTER OF THE GOAL, ADAM DIDN’T MOVE AND HE WOULD HAVE FOUND THE BACK OF THE NET.>>Mike: LOOKING LONG, COLE OFF THE CHEST, ABLE TO BRING IT DOWN. THEY WILL SAY IT WENT OFF JOE COLE. SOCCER FANS, NIKE IS AN OFFICIAL SPONSOR OF SOCCER. THEY WILL SAY THIS WENT OFF JOE COLE. THROW WILL GO ST. LOUIS’ WAY. COLE BRINGS IT DOWN. DROPS IT SHORT FOR NANCHOFF. NANCHOFF WITH SPACE SEND IT WIDE OUT FOR KING. KING CUTS INSIDE. DOESN’T HAVE A LOT. HE WILL DROP IT FOR MORRELL. GIVES IT TO SAVAGE.>>Lee: I THINK AS THIS GAME MOVES ON, THIS IS WHERE GAME MINUTES VERSUS PRACTICE MINUTE HAVE AN EFFECT. ST. LOUIS FC WITH THEIR LACK OF FIRST TEAM GAMES IN THE SEASON. IT’S NOT THE SAME AS PRACTICE WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING AGAINST YOUR OWN PLAYERS, THE PHYSICALITY IS DIFFERENT WHEN YOU ARE NOT GETTING THOSE GAMES IN. THE ROWDIES PLAYING SO MANY GAMES IN A PERIOD OF TIME, THEY ARE THE ONE FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS. IT’S A MATTER OF THAT QUALITY IN THAT FINAL THIRD TO FINISH. THEY SEEM TO BE UNLUCKY AS WELL. JUST A FOOT OR INCH AWAY FROM GETTING THAT FINAL FOOT ON IN THE BOX WHEN ST. LOUIS HAS BEEN ABLE TO CLEAR THE BALL OUT OF THE SIX AND 18-YARD BOX.>>Mike: CABALCETA OVER AND THROUGH MARTIN PATERSON, WHISTLED FOR THE FOUL AS WE ENTER INTO THE 45th MINUTE HERE AT AL LANG STADIUM, FIRST HALF COMING TO AN END. IT’S SCORELESS. SCHAFER ON IT. MKANDAWIRE. PICKENS. UP TO MIDFIELD. KING ON IT NOW, KEEPS IT IN. 45th MINUTE NOW COMING TO A CONCLUSION. THE FOURTH OFFICIAL SHOWS TWO MINUTES. TWO MINUTES OF STOPPAGE TIME. HEADING BACK TO PICKENS. PICKENS SENDS IT OUT. FERNANDES, TAKEN DOWN BY CHARPIE. WE HAVE SEEN THIS, ROWDIES FLAY QUICKLY. FERNANDES IS DOWN, BUT SCHAFER IS ON IT. A LOT OF GREEN AND YELLOW SHIRTS. CROSS BLOCKED. FERNANDES STILL DOWN. PATERSON PUTS IT ON. IT WILL BE A GOAL KICK. SO WORDS ON THE SIDELINE AS LEO FERNANDES STILL DOWN.>>Lee: I APPEARED TO GET CLEANED OUT FROM BEHIND. THERE WAS A PIECE OF THE BALL AND YOU GOT CHARPIE ON A CARD. DANIELLE HAS TO KNOW HE’S ON A CARD. BUT YOU SEE A TACKLE HERE. HAVE A LOOK AT IT AGAIN. HE’S COME IN WITH THE LEG. HE HAS HIT THE BALL. MADE CONTACT WITH IT AS WELL. BUT HE’S GOT A PIECE OF FERNANDES. SO THAT BATTLE CONTINUES RIGHT TO THE END OF THE FIRST HALF BETWEEN THOSE TWO PLAYERS.>>Mike: YES, IT DOES.>>Lee: THEY HAVE EACH BEEN BOOKED TONIGHT.>>Mike: VOLESKY WILL SEND IT BACK TO CHARPIE. CHARPIE LOOKING, GETS IT BACK. OFF SAVAGE, DEFLECTION. MKANDAWIRE HOLDS HIS STAND. LOOSE END. NOW IT’S TAKEN BY THE ROWDIES. FINAL SECONDS. SEE IF ANY EXTRA SECONDS ARE ADDED ON SINCE FERNANDES WAS DOWN FOR HALF MINUTE OF STOPPAGE TIME. SAVAGE FOULED. FREE KICK WILL GO THE ROWDIES’ WAY. SEE IF THE ROWDIES WANT TO SEND IT UP TO THE BOX KNOWING THIS MAY BE THE LAST KICK OF THE FIRST HALF. COLLINS. TOWARD THE CORNER, LOOKING FOR FERNANDES. POKED AWAY BY CHARPIE. AS HE POKES IT AWAY, THE HALFTIME WHISTLE BLOWS. SCORELESS HERE AT AL LANG STADIUM. RIGHT NOW HEATHER DONELY STANDING BY WITH PREKI.>>Heather: WITH THIS BEING YOUR SECOND LEAGUE GAME IN ABOUT A MONTH, THAT’S A BIG CHALLENGE HEAD INTO THIS. HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR TEAM HAS RESPONDED?>>WE ARE WORKING REALLY HARD. I THINK THE GUYS ARE WORKING EXTREMELY HARD FOR EACH OTHER. WE GOT TO BE BETTER ON THE BALL. BECAUSE AT THE MOMENT EVERY TIME WE GET HERE, WE BECOME STAGNANT. WE DON’T MOVE ENOUGH FOR EACH OTHER AND THEN DIFFICULT TO PLAY.>>Heather: WHAT ADJUSTMENTS CAN YOU MAKE FOR THE SECOND HALF?>>WE’LL TALK ABOUT IT AND SEE HOW THE GUYS FEEL.>>Mike: THANKS, HEATHER. WE’LL LOOK AT THE HIGHLIGHTS. A LOT COMING UP. HALFTIME HERE AT AL LANG STADIUM. SCORELESS BETWEEN ST. LOUIS AND TAMPA BAY. YOU ARE WATCHING ROWDIES SOCCER ON THIS TV TAMPA BAY.>>Mike: WELCOME BACK. TAMPA BAY ROWDIES, ST. LOUIS, BOTH WITH ZEROS ON THE SCOREBOARD. WE SAW ST. LOUIS HAD A GOOD PART OF PLAY EARLY ON, LEE. BUT THE ROWDIES, THE LAST 30 MINUTES, CONTROLLED PLAY. UNFORTUNATE NOT TO PUT SOMETHING IN THE BACK OF THE NET.>>Lee: YES, THEY DID. THEY HAD A LOT OF DEFENDING. THEY DID A GOOD JOB. THEY TAKE A LOOK AT THE FIRST HALF HIGHLIGHTS. MATT PICKENS DIDN’T HAVE TO MAKE A BIG SAVE. JOE COLE ON THE FREE KICK. GREAT SAVE THERE. GETTING UP AND TIPPING THAT WITH HIS RIGHT HAND UP AND OVER THE BAR. A GOOD JOB THERE. HERE YOU SEE ONE OF THE OPPORTUNITIES JUST ON THE COUNTERATTACK BY ST. LOUIS. BUT CAN’T WIRE — MKANDAWIRE ABLE TO CLEAR THAT AWAY. NICE START BY DARNELL KING TO START THAT. THINGS GOT CHIPPY IN THIS ONE, FOUR YELLOW CARDS IN THE FIRST HALF OF PLAY. TWO FOR EACH SIDE. WE SAW THAT BATTLE BETWEEN FERNANDES AND CHARPIE. WE’LL SEE HOW DANIELLE CALLS THIS GAME IN THE SECOND HALF. YOU WOULDN’T WANT IT TO GET AWAY FROM HER AND BE THE HEADLINE OF THE GAME IN THIS ONE. YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE ON THE PLAYERS, MIKE, AND WE’LL SEE HOW PLAYERS REACT AND WHAT THEY CAN AND CAN’T DO ON THE FIELD IS TOUGH TO FIGURE OUT.>>Lee: THAT FREE KICK NOT ON TARGET. THAT BREAK-AWAY, YOU SAW THAT IN THE HIGHLIGHTS. ROWDIES ONLY ABLE TO GET THAT ONE ON NET. YOU CAN SEE THE CORNER KICKS, TOO. LAST HALF HOUR.>>Mike: STUART CAMPBELL HAS TO TELL THE GUYS DO MORE OF THE SAME, DON’T GET FRUSTRATED BY THE LACK OF FINISHING. TH — IF THEY CONTINUE TO CREATE CHANCES, ONE WILL FALL IN THE NET.>>Lee: MORE COMING UP. YOU ARE WATCHING TAMPA BAY ROWDIES SOCCER ON THIS TV.>>Heather: THE USL’S ALL TIME LEADING SCORER HAS ADDED ANOTHER ACCOLADE TO HIS RESUME’.>>HE HAS THE HAT TRICK! DEAN KELLY HAS DONE IT AGAIN, BACK-TO-BACK GAMES, THREE GOALS.>>Heather: HE’S THE ONLY PLAYER IN USL HISTORY TO SCORE BACK-TO-BACK HAT TRICKS. HE NOTCHED THE FIRST ONE IN RENO.>>CARRIES THE BALL AHEAD. HE SCORED IN THE SECOND MINUTE! KELLEY, THAT’S TWO IN SIX MINUTES! KELLEY, HE STEPS OVER AND PUTS IT IN OFF THE POST! THAT IS A HAT TRICK IN THE 66th MINUTE.>>Heather: THE SECOND INCURRED IN FRONT OF THE HOME CROWD AT GREATER RENO FIELD.>>GOAL! HERE’S KELLEY! HE’S GOT THE HAT TRICK! DEAN KELLEY HAS DONE IT AGAIN!>>Heather: KELLEY WAS HONORED WITH TWO USL PLAYER OF THE WEEK RECOGNITIONS FOLLOWING HIS BACK-TO-BACK PLAYS.>>Mike: I’M JOINED BY STUART CAMPBELL. COACH, SCORELESS AT THE HALF.>>ST. LOUIS STARTED WELL. WE FINISHED THE HALF STRONGLY.>>Heather: YOU ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A STRETCH OF GAMES. YOU HAVE A LINEUP RIGHT NOW. HOW DO YOU MANAGE THAT GOING INTO THE SECOND HALF, KNOWING YOU HAVE A BIG OPEN CUP GAME WEDNESDAY.>>THAT’S A DIFFERENT GAME. WE ARE COMPLETELY FOCUSED AND GET THREE POINTS.>>Heather: THANKS.>>Mike: THANK YOU, HEATHER. TWO WEEKS FROM TONIGHT WE’LL BE BACK ON THIS TV TAMPA BAY. ROWDIES WILL HOST ROCHESTER RHINOS WHO THEY LOST TO WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THEY CAN TAKE IT ON HERE AT AL LANG STADIUM. OUR PREGAME BEGINS AT 7:00, TWO WEEKS FROM TONIGHT. THE ROWDIES AND ROCHESTER RHINOS. TEAMS WILL SWITCH HALF. HAD A CHANCE ON TWITTER AT THE HALF. YOU CAN ALWAYS TWEET US AND I WILL TRY TO GET TO IT AFTER THE GAME. CHARLES GALLAGHER MENTIONED THE ST. LOUIS JERSEYS. IF THEY HAD ANOTHER SPONSOR, IT MIGHT BE LEAGUE X. I LIKEN IT TO NASCAR. THAT TEAM WILL MAKE A SUBSTITUTION WITH ST. LOUIS. COMING IN WILL BE MATT BJURMAN. BJURMAN WILL BE IN FOR DALGAARD. THEY MAKE THEIR FIRST SUBSTITUTION OF THE NIGHT. AND WE SAW STUART CAMPBELL OPTING TO GO WITHOUT A JACKET, LEE. FIRST TIME THIS YEAR. HE DOES WIN THE BETTER DRESS COACH ALONG WITH PREKI TONIGHT. EVEN WITHOUT THE JACKET, HE LOOKS ON THIS SECOND HALF, THE SUBSTITUTION, BJURMAN ON FOR DALGAARD FOR ST. LOUIS.>>Mike: WE SAW THEM.>>Lee: LOUISVILLE CAME DOWN HERE GETTING THE THREE POINTS BACK. INTERESTING TO SEE IF THEY CAN DO THE SAME THING AGAINST THE RHINOS. THE MATTER AT HAND IS THE NEXT 45 MINUTES OF PLAY. 0-0 HERE. THEY CAN CRACK THAT PACK LINE OF ST. LOUIS FC.>>Mike: FALSE START ON THE WHISTLE. THEY WILL START AGAIN. ST. LOUIS LOOKING ON AS DARNELL KING HEADS IT AWAY. NANCHOFF FIND THE OPEN MAN IN MARCEL SCHAFER. SCHAFER, FERNANDES. WHISTLED FOR THE FOUL AFTER THE PLAY. COMING IN AND TAKEN DOWN WAS STOJKOV.>>Lee: BRINGING IN MATT BJURMAN, PREKI IS TRYING TO GET THE TOP TWO INVOLVED A LITTLE MORE, TRY TO HELP OUT THE ATTACK THROUGH THE MIDFIELD AND PLAY IN TRANSITION. WE DID NOT SAY CHRISTIAN VOLESKY’S NAME VERY MUCH, A KEY PART TO THEIR ATTACK.>>Mike: SENT IN FOR VOLESKY, BUT PICKENS ABLE TO CATCH THAT EASILY. HE’S LOOKING TO KEEP POSSESSION. BOUNCES BETWEEN COLE AND FERNANDES. ST. LOUIS LOOKING TO GO OVER THE TOP. COLLINS RECOVERS. BUT DOES GO DOWN. HERE’S PICKENS WILL HAVE IT. THAT BALL PLAYED IN BY ALIHODZIC. PICKENS FROM THE GROUND. LOOKING FOR COLE. SECOND BALL WILL GO OUT. PATERSON WITH THE FIRST ONE TOWARDS IT. COLE AT HIS FEET. GOOD PRESSURE BY ST. LOUIS. IT WILL BE OFF AND ROWDIES THROW. YOU SEE OTTAWA GOT A BIG WIN. THEY HAVE BEEN HOT. THEY MOVED INTO THE TOP EIGHT.>>5-3. WITH GAMES IN HAND, MIKE.>>Mike: CINCINNATI WITH THE WIN. LOSING TO CHARLOTTE. THAT ONE BEING PLAYED UP AND OVER. GOING THE ROWDIES’ WAY. KING LOOKING TO GO TOWARD THE CORNER. IT WILL BE OFF OF ST. LOUIS. IT WILL BE A THROW-IN FOR THE ROWDIES. COLE. ABLE TO TURN, ABLE TO GET IT ACROSS. SECOND BALL IS TAKEN DOWN BY ST. LOUIS. NOW THEY WILL LOOK LONG. NO ONE IS THERE. FITZGERALD. GETS THE PLAY, THE BACKUP GOALIE FOR THE ROWDIES. THAT ONE ROLLING TOWARDS THE CORNER. INTO THE ST. LOUIS BENCH, THROW-IN ROWDIES. MORRELL. ALEX MORRELL BEHIND THE DEFENSE. ALEX MORRELL ACROSS THE 18. ALEX MORRELL WITH THE SHOT AND IT’S SAVED DOWN TO THE RIGHT.>>Lee: THAT’S THAT SPEED THAT ALEX MORRELL BRINGS. LIKE I SAID EARLIER IN THE FIRST HALF, THE DIAGONAL RUNS HE LIKES TO MAKE, THE LAKELAND, FLORIDA NATIVE, GETTING ANOTHER START HERE TONIGHT CONTRIBUTING OFFENSIVELY.>>Mike: COLE WILL GIVE IT UP WIDE TO MORRELL. MORRELL BACK TO COLE. COLE INTO THE BOX. COLE’S CROSS BLOCKED. HE WILL GET IT BACK TO SAVAGE. HAS TO GO BACK TO KING. NOW MORRELL AGAIN. NANCHOFF. SAVAGE WIDE TO SCHAFER. GOOD PRESSURE BY ST. LOUIS FORCING THE ROWDIES INTO THEIR OWN HALF. COLLINS. SAW NOTHING, SO HE’S GOT TO GIVE IT TO PICKENS. NANCHOFF WANTS IT. PICKENS WILL SEND IT LONG INSTEAD. SECOND BALL FALLS TO DARNELL KING WHO WILL USE HIS FEET AROUND THE CORNER. INSIDE, JOE COLE. COLE TO THE LINE. COLE ACROSS. NOW IT’S BLOCKED. HEADED AWAY BY ST. LOUIS. KING WITH THE SECOND BALL. KING, OUT TO SCHAFER. HE HAS A CANON IF HE CAN TEE IT UP, HE WILL CUT IT INTO THE RIGHT FOOT. SAVAGE. CAN KING GET TO THE LINE? SENDS IT ACROSS. LOOKING TO GO ON NET. IT’S ON TOP OF THE GOAL. GOAL KICK FOR ST. LOUIS.>>Lee: NOT MUCH HE COULD DO THERE EXCEPT WATCH IT. YOU HAVE THAT FEELING IF THE ROWDIES GET THE ONE THAT THE FLOODGATE MIGHT OPEN. THE FIRST ONE HAS BEEN THE MOST DIFFICULT FOR THEM TONIGHT WITH ALL OF THE OFFENSE AND OPPORTUNITIES THAT THEY HAVE HAD. GIVE CREDIT TO ST. LOUIS BACK FOUR AND HOLDING MIDFIELDERS TONIGHT. THEY HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB IN WINNING A LOT OF THOSE BALLS INTO THE BOX AND CLEARING THEM OUT OF DANGER.>>Mike: COLE, INTO THE BOX. COLE WITH THE TOE-POKE. IT WAS SNUFFED OFF THE FEET OF ONE OF THE DEFENDERS. COLE DOES GET THE SHOT OFF, BUT IT SEEMED TO BE KIND OF A LITTLE BIT BLOCKED INTO THIS AREA.>>Lee: GOOD RUN BY COLE. I DON’T THINK HE GOT MUCH OF IT. IT MAY HAVE WENT OFF A DEFENDER’S BRIEFLY. JOE COLE WAS UNHAPPY WITH HIMSELF WITH THAT EFFORT ON GOAL.>>Mike: OFFSIDE THE OTHER WAY. FREE KICK WILL GO TO THE ROWDIES. MORRELL. NANCHOFF HAS SOME SPACE. HE’S GOING ACROSS THE FIELD TO FERNANDES. FERNANDES OFF THE CHEST, PLAY ON. SCHAFER OVERLAPS. HE WILL CUT IT BACK AND PULLED DOWN FROM BEHIND! ROWDIES, JOE COLE IS FURIOUS. HE APPEARED TO BE PULLED DOWN FROM BEHIND. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A CLEAR CHANCE ON NET, MAYBE EVEN A RED CARD. NOTHING IS CALLED. ROWDIES SEND THE BALL OVER THE GOAL. IT WILL BE A GOAL KICK.>>Lee: LOOK ACROSS OVER THE BOX. CATCH UP WITH IT IN TIME. DIFFICULT TO SEE THAT ANGLE. YOU DON’T SEE, JOE COLE MAY HAVE BEEN SLIDING INTO THAT BALL AS WELL. HERE IS A BETTER ANGLE.>>Mike: WALLS.>>Lee: THERE IS A PULL. THERE IS A DEFINITE PULL. HE GRABS THE BACK OF THE JERSEY AND TRIES TO NOT CALL IT. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A PENALTY ON THE PULL OF THE JERSEY FROM BEHIND ON JOE COLE. HE HAS EVERY RIGHT TO BE UPSET ON THAT ONE. A SCORING OPPORTUNITY DENIED, A PENALTY KICK NOT CALLED.>>Mike: COLE IS AROUND THIS TIME. THIS IS PLEWA. PLEWA DOES NOT HAVE A CAUTION YET. HE WILL NOW. ORIGINALLY ON THE CALL, WHEN WE SAW COLE, THE OFFICIAL OR THE REFEREE IN THE SAME ANGLE. SURPRISED SHE DIDN’T SEE T WE WERE ABLE TO SEE IT FROM 130 YARDS AWAY. PLEWA BEING CALLED ACROSS. HE WILL GET THE CARD. NUMBER 5, KONRAD PLEWA. PATERSON THIS TIME WAS TAKEN DOWN ACTUALLY.>>Lee: IT’S BEEN A DIFFICULT GAME TONIGHT AS FAR AS THE CARD AND CALLED, THE ONES THAT HAVE BEEN CALLED, THE ONES THAT HAVEN’T BEEN CALLED. INCONSISTENCY WHICH MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR THE PLAYERS KNOW HOW TO PLAY A GAME BECAUSE THEY DON’T KNOW HOW IT’S GOING TO BE CALLED. THERE IS A LOT OF BICKERING BACK AND FORTH TONIGHT. MUCH MORE THAN USUAL.>>Mike: NANCHOFF, OVER THIS TWO MAN WALL. HE’S LETTING THE REFEREE KNOW HIS THOUGHTS. 30 YARDS OUT, NOT FROM THE CENTER. SENT TOWARDS THE BACK POST. OFF THE CHEST OF MORRELL. HE WILL DROP IT DOWN. DOES NOT PLAY IT BACK TO COLE. MISCOMMUNICATION FOR ROWDIES ALLOWS ST. LOUIS TO COUNTER. NUMBERS FOR ST. LOUIS. THEY HAVE A 3 V. 2. THE GREAT TACKLE,.>>Lee: THAT IS A GOAL SAVING CLEARANCE THERE BY MKANDAWIRE. YOU CAN SEE JOSE JUMPING UP AND DOWN IN DISBELIEF HE WASN’T ABLE TO GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO PUT THAT BALL ON MATT PICKENS.>>Mike: MEANWHILE, BACK ON THE SIDELINE, STUART CAMPBELL LETTING THE OFFICIALS KNOW HIS THOUGHTS. CAUTION IS GOING OUT TO SOMEONE HERE. APPARENTLY FOR DECENT. MAYBE DARNELL KING. IF IT’S DARNELL KING, HE WILL MISS NEXT WEEK’S GAME AT CHARLOTTE. SO DARNELL KING WITH HIS FIFTH WILL MISS NEXT WEEK’S GAME AGAINST CHARLOTTE. WILL NOT MISS THE U.S. OPEN CUP, WELL, AT LEAST NOT BECAUSE OF YELLOW CARD ACCUMULATION. SCHAFER ABLE TO RUN IT DOWN. MKANDAWIRE THROW AS BODY BLOCK IN FRONT OF ANGULO. SCHAFER OUT OF BOUNDS. THROW-IN WILL GO ST. LOUIS’ WAY. AND SCHAFER PLAYED THAT ONE UP THE FIELD, HE GETS A TALKING TO. BALL TO BE THROWN IN BY ST. LOUIS. LOOSE BALL HERE. IT IS ST. LOUIS LOOKING TO SEND IT BACK IN. BACK ACROSS. WALLS ABLE TO TURN. LOOSE BALL. ON HIS RIGHT FOOT. LOOSE BALL STILL. ANGULO. ST. LOUIS WITH A DANGEROUS SPOT. FREE KICK. DANGEROUS SPOT FOR ST. LOUIS. LET’S CHECK IN WITH HEATHER ON THAT CAUTION.>>Heather: WE KNEW HEADING INTO THE GAME THAT DARNELL KING WAS IN YELLOW CARD TROUBLE. THE OTHER ROWDIES IS GEORGI HRISTOV. HE’S ON THE BENCH RIGHT NOW. IF HE DOES GET SUBBED INTO THE GAME, HE HAS TO BE CAREFUL WITH THE WAY CARDS ARE FLYING IF HE WANTS TO PLAY IN SUNDAY’S MARCH AGAINST CHARLOTTE.>>Mike: RIGHT NOW THE ROWDIES HAVE SOMETHING MUCH MORE TO WORRY ABOUT. THIS BALL IS OUTSIDE THE AREA, 22-YARD OUT, VERY DANGEROUS SPOT AS MATT PICKENS SETS HIS WALL. FIVE WILL BE IN IT.>>Lee: AND IF YOU ARE MATT BJURMAN LUNGEING IN THERE TO MKANDAWIRE.>>Mike: RIGHT NOW 28. ALIHODZIC IS OVER IT WITH THE RIGHT FOOT AND ANGULO WITH THE LEFT FOOT. OVER IT WITH THE SPIN AND NOW ANGULO STEPPING IT OFF. ALIHODZIC STEPPING IT OFF. RIGHT OR LEFT, AND GO CURL IT IS OVER AND IT’S IN THE BACK OF THE NET. THE DIFFERENCE, ROWDIES HAD A SHOT. ST. LOUIS SCORES THE GAME’S FIRST GOAL. JOSE ANGULO GIVES THEM A 1-0 LEAD.>>Lee: THERE YOU HAVE IT, MIKE. TAMPA BAY ROWDIES ROWDIES UNABLE TO FINISH. ALWAYS KEEPS IT IN. NANCHOFF WAS NOT ABLE TO FINISH IN THAT POSITION. ADAM WITH SLIPPERS, THIS TIME MATT PICKENS NOT MOVING AT ALL ON A SHOT BY JOSE ANGULO. IT GIVES ST. LOUIS 1-0. FRUSTRATING FOR BOTH SIDE WITH THE WAY THIS IS BEING CALLED. I DON’T SEE GEORGI HRISTOV COMING INTO THE GAME. I WOULD NOT RISK IT BECAUSE OF THE WAY THAT DANIELLE IS CALLING THIS GAME, WE HAVE HAD ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX YELLOWS SO FAR WITH STILL 30 MINUTES TO PLAY IN THE SECOND HALF.>>Mike: EVEN WITH THAT IN MIND, GEORGI HRISTOV WHO LEADS THE TEAM WITH GOALS EVEN IF YOU GET THE CAUTION. YOU WOULD THINK YOU WOULD GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET A YELLOW CARD RESCINDED SHOULD YOU GO FIVE GAMES IN A ROW WITHOUT IT. YOU DON’T HAVE TO PLAY IN ORDER TO DO THAT. YOU ARE RIGHT, IF YOU WANTED TO TRY TO GET THOSE NUMBERS. HERE COMES AN END ON THE TACKLE. STOJKOV. HE GETS A FINAL WARNING. FOR VIEWERS IN TAMPA BAY, AFTER THE ACTION ON THE FIELD CHECK OUT THE ACTION ON THE MOVIE CHANNEL. SENT UP. ROWDIES WITH CONTROLLED PLAY. IT’S A SET PIECE BY ST. LOUIS THAT HAS GIVEN THEM THE 1-0 LEAD. COLLINS ON IT. COLE ON-SIDE. NO, FLAG CAME UP ON THE PLAY. GRINWIS WOULD BEAT HIM TO IT ANYWAY. ST. LOUIS WITH THE SECOND BALL. SAVAGE. LOOSE BALL SENT UP FIELD. COLLINS CONTROLS IT. ST. LOUIS WHO HAS BEEN PRETTY GOOD ON HIGH PRESSURE IF THEY CHANGE THEIR THOUGHT PROCESS AND MAYBE GO BACK AND DEFEND A LITTLE BIT MORE WITH THE ONE GOAL LEAD. HERE’S MKANDAWIRE. SENT UP, PATERSON. MKANDAWIRE IS WHISTLED FOR A FOUL BEHIND THE PLAY. SUBSTITUTIONS WILL BE MADE. TYLER DAVID IN FOR VOLESKY FOR ST. LOUIS. LOOKS LIKE DARWIN JOANS WILL BE BE — JONES WILL BE COMING ON FOR THE ROWDIES. AND HE DOES. HE WILL COME ON FOR MORRELL. GOING BACK TO PICKENS. HERE’S NANCHOFF. TWO SUBS MADE BY ST. LOUIS HERE IN THE 63rd MINUTE ON THE GAME. ONE AT THE HALF, THE ON THE ONE NOW. ROWDIES HAVE MADE ONE, STILL WITH A COUPLE OF SUBS. BACK TO COLLINS. PATERSON. KING TAKEN DOWN. SAVAGE ON THE LOOSE BALL, TRIES TO WORK WITH KING. THEY WILL GET IT BACK TO HIM. KING TRIES TO FIND JONES, IT’S BLOCKED. ST. LOUIS HAS IT. SECOND BALL JUST OVER THE STRETCHED FOOT OF JOE COLE. YOU CAN SEE. HERE’S PATERSON AND TO COLE. MKANDAWIRE. YOU SEE ALREADY THEY HAVE MOVED IN ON TOP FOR VOLESKY. BUT DAVID IS PLAYING A LITTLE DEEPER THAN WHAT ANGULO WAS. ST. LOUIS GOING TO MORE DEFENSIVE POSTURE. THEY WILL HAVE THE THROW-IN. THE USL IS ONE OF THE MOST PROMINENT SECOND DIVISION LEAGUE NOTICE WORLD, FEATURING SOME OF THE TOP TALENT AND RISING STARS. VISIT USLSOCCER.COM AND FOLLOW THE LEAGUE ON TWITTER, @USL. GEORGI HRISTOV GETS WORDS FROM NICO STUART CAMPBELL. PLAY BACK TO GRINWIS. COLE. SCHAFER. IT IS STOJKOV WHO WINS IT. FERNANDES LOOKING LONG FOR PATERSON. COLE LOOKING FOR PATERSON. HE WAS RUNNING WIDE. INSTEAD IT WAS SENT BACK TO GRINWIS. GRINWIS WILL COLLECT THAT. DOES APPEAR THAT GEORGI HRISTOV WILL BE COMING ON FOR MARTIN PATERSON.>>Lee: STUART CAMPBELL READY TO THROW HIM IN THERE. HOPE HE DOESN’T GET A YELL LEVEL WE SAW HOW HE IMPACTED THE GAME SCORING A FANTASTIC GOAL, A GAME-WINNING GOAL IN HIS RECORD-SETTING APPEARANCE FOR THE ROWDIES.>>Mike: PLAYED TOWARDS STOJKOV. STOJKOV WILL DRIBBLE OVER THE SIDELINE. HE GOES OVER THE SIDELINE. STOJKOV GOES OVER THE WALL. ROWDIES WILL MAKE A SUB. ANGULO WAS STRETCHING FOR ST. LOUIS. WHETHER HE’S CRAMPING OR NOT, SOMETHING TO KEEP OUR EYE ON. ST. LOUIS DOES HAVE ONE SUB LEFT. HRISTOV WILL MAKE HIS WAY ON. OBVIOUSLY, THE GREAT GOAL BY ANGULO. BUT IT WAS JUST THREE MINUTES PRIOR JOE COLE BEING PULLED DOWN FROM BEHIND WHICH NOT ONLY PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE BEEN A PENALTY KICK, BUT MAYBE SHOULD HAVE BEEN AN EJECTION. ALTHOUGH WALLS WAS BEHIND THE PLAY. AT LEAST A YELLOW CARD. BUT NO CALL. ST. LOUIS HAS THE LEAD. LOOKS LIKE THEY WILL BE READY TO MAKE THEIR THIRD SUB. IT MIGHT BE ANGULO WHO IS CRAMPING. WE’LL SEE WHETHER OR NOT — I THINK HE WOULD BE THE CANDIDATE TO COME OFF AS HE LIMPS OFF NOW, CRAMPING. ST. LOUIS WILL HAVE 23 MINUTES TO GO WITH THE 1-0 LEAD, AND ABOUT TO MAKE THEIR FINAL SUB. THEY DO AS OCTAVIO GUZMAN IN FOR ANGULO. SO COLLINS BACK ACROSS TO MKANDAWIRE. ROWDIES STILL HAVE A SUB TO MAKE. WITH DESHORN BROWN ON THE BENCH, WE’LL SEE HOW LONG BEFORE STUART CAMPBELL OPTS TO GO WITH YET ANOTHER STRIKE TORE SEE IF THEY CAN GET AN EQUALIZER AND MAYBE EVENTUALLY A WINNER. THEY HAVE TO GET THIS SOON. AS YOU CAN SEE THE SHOTS ON GOAL DOMINATED BY THE ROWDIES. THE ONE ON GOAL WAS THE DIRECT FREE KICK, NICELY PLACED BY ANGULO. HERE IS COLLINS. SCHAFER. BACK OUT, SCHAFER AND FERNANDES TOGETHER. FERNANDES WHIPS IT IN. BLOCKED BY ST. LOUIS. SECOND BALL, FERNANDES AGAIN. ROWDIES GAME POSSESSION. NOT ABLE TO GET IT IN THE AREA. COLLINS. TO COLE. MKANDAWIRE LOSES IT. WELL DEFENDED BY ST. LOUIS. HERE’S DAVID. TYLER DAVID WITH SPACE. SLOTS IT AND ON-SIDE. RUNNING AWAY FROM IT IS BJURMAN. BJURMAN HAD TO TURN IT AWAY.>>Lee: GOOD JOB BY BJURMAN. PATIENT, TOO. NOW ST. LOUIS, UNFORTUNATELY, GIVING IT AWAY. THE ROWDIES, STILL A POOR JOB OF IN TRANSITION AND ON THE COUNTERATTACK GIVING IT RIGHT BACK TO ST. LOUIS. ST. LOUIS, IF THE ROWDIES DON’T WANT TO TRY TO GET BALLS INSIDE, LET THEM PASS IT AROUND THE TOP OF THE BOX ALL NIGHT. TRY TO KILL THAT CLOCK OFF AND MASSIVE 3 POINTS ON THE ROAD IF THEY CAN HOLD ON HERE.>>Mike: WALLS. DAVID VERY EFFECTIVE SINCE HE’S COX ON, CONTROLLING THE BALL IN THE MIDDLE. HE WILL SEND IT OUT WIDE. ROWDIES’ THROW. FOR VIEWERS IN TAMPA BAY, THIS TV HAS YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A CONSOLE, PLUS A SPECIAL AUTOGRAPHED ITEM FROM THE ROWDIES. WATCH ROWDIES GAMES ON THIS TV. GO TO M OR-TV.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION. ST. LOUIS STILL KEEPING HIGHER PRESSURE. THAT’S HRISTOV. SECOND BALL BEHIND IT IS CHARPIE, ABLE TO RUN IT DOWN. THAT BALL TAKEN AWAY BY FERNANDES. HE WILL GET IT IN TO NANCHOFF. SWITCH TO SAVAGE. ALL THE WAY ACROSS OVER TO KING. KING AND JONES WILL WORK TOGETHER ON THE FAR SIDE, DEFENDED VERY WELL BY ST. LOUIS ON THE FAR SIDE. OPPORTUNITY HERE AS THAT BALL SLIDES THROUGH. COLLINS HAS TO HURRY BEFORE DAVID. MARCEL SCHAFER WHISTLED FOR THE FOUL.>>Lee: THIS IS PROBABLY THE FIRST TIME, I’M SURPRISED A YELLOW CARD HASN’T COME OUT. YEAH, A FOUL, BUT THE CARD DIDN’T COME OUT. ANOTHER DANGEROUS OPPORTUNITY.>>Mike: I DID THINK THIS IS A YELLOW CARD. WE HAVE SEEN THE OTHER CAUTIONS.>>Lee: THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT, THE INCONSISTENCIES IN THIS GAME. BOTH TEAMS A LITTLE FRUSTRATED BY THE WAY THIS ONE HAS BEEN CALLED.>>Mike: SO DESHORN BROWN WILL COME ON. HE WILL MAKE HIS WAY ON FOR FERNANDES. ROWDIES WILL HAVE MADE ALL THEIR SUBS NOW. AND THE LATEST USL NEWS IS ON SIRIUS XM-FC. YOU CAN TUNE IN ON MONDAY NIGHTS. IT WILL ALSO AIR THE USL GAME OF THE WEEK. CHECK USLSOCCER.COM FOR DATES AND TIMES.>>Lee: WELL, GIVE CREDIT TO ST. LOUIS FC. IT WAS A GREAT TACKLE ON DARNELL KING, TO COME DOWN, FORCE A FOUL AND NOW THEY HAVE ANOTHER GOOD SCORING OPPORTUNITY HERE. THE ROWDIES NEED TO GET SOME DIAGONAL RUNS INTO THE BOX AND SEND THE BALL INTO THE BOX AND NOT LOOKING FOR THAT PERFECT PLAY BECAUSE THERE IS SO MANY PLAYERS ON ST. LOUIS BEHIND THE BALL. THEY DID IT MUCH MORE SUCCESSFULLY IN THE FIRST HALF THAN THEY DID THE SECOND.>>Mike: WE HAVE DELIBERATE TIME WASTING HERE BY ST. LOUIS. THEY THREW A WATER BATTLE ON THE FIELD AND HAD TO WALK BACK WITH IT. STOJKOV IS STILL OFF. IT WILL BE ALIHODZIC WHO IS OVER THE BALL. BACK POST RUNNERS COMING IN. ALIHODZIC SENDS IT IN. HEADED UP BY MKANDAWIRE. SECOND BALL, SCHAFER. LOOKING FOR BROWN. DESHORN BROWN, OFF HIS CHEST, OUT OF BOUND. THROW-IN FOR ST. LOUIS AT MIDFIELD. OPPORTUNITY. STANLEY WILL TAKE THE THROW, LOOKING LONG. AND FOR GUZMAN, OCTAVIO GUZMAN, IT WILL BE A CORNER KICK FOR ST. LOUIS. INTO THE 75th MINUTE. ST. LOUIS LEADING ROWDIES 1-0. JOSE ANGULO’S FREE-KICK GOAL IS THE DIFFERENCE. BALL PLAYED ACROSS. DARNELL KING WINS THE HEADER. IT’S LOOSE TOP OF THE BOX. GUZMAN HAS IT TAKEN OFF OF HIM BY HRISTOV. COLE, NICE TOUCH. DARWIN JONES. DARWIN JONES, A LOT OF WHITE SHIRTS BEHIND HIM. HE WILL TRY TO FIND COLE. FIND ITS WAY TO SCHAFER WHO’S GOT SPACE. SCHAFER, MARKED BY GUZMAN. WHIPPED ACROSS, DESHORN BROWN HAS IT. THEY WILL LOSE IT AND ST. LOUIS WILL HAVE IT. THAT’S A LITTLE QUESTIONABLE. NOT DEBATING WHETHER THAT WAS OR NOT. I’M STILL STUNNED BY THE LACK OF A PENALTY KICK ON THAT ONE. IT WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE REFEREE. ESPECIALLY PARTICULARLY WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE IS BEING CALLED TONIGHT. MICHAEL NANCHOFF LOOKS TO BE –>>Lee: THAT LOOKED LIKE A 50/50 BALL THAT THE ROWDIES HAD WON. YEAH, A LITTLE BIT OF CONTACT. SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO LET THE PLAYERS PLAY. AND, AGAIN, THIS HAS GOTTEN OUT OF HAND FOR DANIELLE. IT’S UNFORTUNATE. BUT THIS IS THE FIRST GAME THIS YEAR THAT AN OFFICIAL, YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING OUT THERE. I THOUGHT IT WAS THE WRONG CALL ON MORRELL IN THE FIRST HALF WHERE HE WAS BEING SHIELDED, NOT ALLOWED TO PURSUE THE BALL. THE CALL WENT AGAINST HIM. AND HE WAS GIVEN A CARD ON THE ENSUING FRUSTRATION OF IT.>>Mike: SO THAT FREE KICK GOES THE ROWDIES’ WAY. 77th MINUTE NOW. ROWDIES SHUT OUT ON WEDNESDAY IN ROCHESTER. SO FAR SHUT OUT THROUGH 77 MINUTE HERE. COLLINS LOOKING TO GO FORWARD. OUT TO SCHAFER. SCHAFER ACROSS, LOOKING FOR BROWN. GOING TO BOUNCE. SECOND BALL COMING OUT TO DARWIN JONES. SHOT, DEFLECTED. IT’S STILL NOT OUT. JONES ON IT. HAS TWO ON HIM, HE WILL PLAY BACK TO KING. DARNELL KING, ACROSS THE BOX. HEADED AWAY BY ST. LOUIS. SECOND BALL RIPPED HIGH BY NANCHOFF. IT WILL BE A GOAL KICK. FOR VIEWERS IN TAMPA BAY YOU CAN CATCH THE ROWDIES ALL SEASON ON THIS TV. FIND>>Lee: ONE OF THOSE NIGHTS FOR THE ROWDIES, THE BOUNCES DON’T SEEM TO BE GOING THEIR WAY IN THE BOX. THEY ARE BOUNCING AROUND AND ALWAYS SEEMS TO FIND A WHITE JERSEY TO FALL AND NOT TO CLEAR AT THE FEET OF SOMEONE IN GREEN AND GOLD. BUT A COUPLE OF GOOD BALLS INTO THE BOX FROM THAT LEFT-HAND SIDE FROM MARCEL SCHAFER. THAT’S WHAT NEED TO HAPPEN AND HAVE PLAYERS LIKE BROWN AND DARWIN JONES COMING IN ON THAT OPPOSITE FLANK MAKING RUNS AND TRYING TO GET ON THE END OF IT.>>Mike: CAUTIONS HAVE BEEN PLENTIFUL TONIGHT. DARWIN JONES PLAYING TOWARD THE SIDE. HE WILL GO OUT OF BOUNDS. AGAIN, NOT TRYING TO HARP ON THE CALL. MAYBE GRINWIS MAKE AS GREAT SAVE. MAYBE THE ROWDIES PUT IT OVER. ST. LOUIS HAS TO CHANGE IT UP. BUT ALL CREDIT TO ANGULO, FANTASTIC FINISH. YOU JUST WONDER THE CONSISTENCY ON THE CALLS ON THE NIGHT WHICH HAS LEFT LITTLE TO BE DESIRED. AND TO SOME EFFECT BOTH TEAMS AS WELL. ONE CRITICAL MISCALL, THAT ONE IS THROWN TOWARD THE LINE. IT WILL BE A GOAL KICK. KING AND GUZMAN TIED UP. KING ALREADY WITH A CAUTION, AGAIN, WILL MISS THE ROWDIES’ GAME NEXT SUNDAY IN CHARLOTTE. SHOULD BE ELIGIBLE TO PLAY ON WEDNESDAY AS THE ROWDIES CONTINUE THE U.S. OPEN CUP IN MIAMI. THEY WIN, THEY WILL GO TO ORLANDO TWO WEEKS AFTER THAT. DROP-IN! HERE’S HRISTOV. IT’S CLEARED AWAY. DESHORN BROWN WITH A GOOD TOUCH. RECOVERED BY ST. LOUIS.>>Lee: GEORGI HRISTOV JUST LOST THAT BALL AT HIS OWN FEET. HE NEEDED ONE TOUCH, HE COULDN’T GET THAT ONE TOUCH. THE BALL GOT CAUGHT UP AND HE HAD TO SLOW HIS RUN.>>Mike: HERE’S MKANDAWIRE. OUT WIDE FOR SCHAFER. MARCEL SCHAFER. PUTS THAT ONE ACROSS, TO THE KNEE OF BROWN, AND NOW CLEARED AWAY BY ST. LOUIS. IT’S STILL IN THE BOX. PUSH FROM BEHIND. THAT ONE WASN’T SO OBVIOUS, BUT DID GET A LITTLE BIT OF A SHOVE. NOW IT’S FREE OUT TOWARDS MKANDAWIRE WHO HAS TO RUN IT DOWN. ST. LOUIS SEEMS CONTENT TO DEFEND AS THAT BALL COME INTO THEIR AREA. THAT WAS A GOOD JOB OF READING THAT ONE BY STANLEY. IT WILL BE A THROW-IN FOR THE ROWDIES. ALWAYS THE NUMBERS THERE. GOOD JOB RECOVERING DEFENSIVELY. THIS TIME SOMEONE IS DOWN FOR ST. LOUIS, STANLEY. MAYBE CRAMPING A LITTLE BIT. ROWDIES WITH IT. RIGHT NOW A LITTLE BIT OF MAN TO MAN. STANLEY IS OFF THE FIELD. ST. LOUIS DOES NOT HAVE A SUB REMAINING. GUZMAN AND MKANDAWIRE WILL HIP CHECK. THIS ONE SHOULD BE A CAUTION. IT WILL BE A CAUTION.>>Lee: YOU CAN’T ARGUE THAT ONE, MIKE. MKANDAWIRE CAME ACROSS AND CLEARED OUT GUZMAN. NOW GUZMAN IS TAKING FULL ADVANTAGE OF IT, EVEN IF HE’S NOT HURT, THERE IS NO WAY THAT HE IS. AS HE EVEN GETS UP AND GOES DOWN JUST TO WASTE MORE TIME ON THE CLOCK. THE FRUSTRATION, YOU DON’T WANT IT TO SET IN. IT’S GOT TO BE VERY DIFFICULT FOR THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES NOT TO FEEL OUTDONE BY — AND NOT JUST BECAUSE OF THE CALLS, IT’S BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF BEING ABLE TO FINISH AND HOW WELL ST. LOUIS HAS DEFENDED IN THIS GAME. THE BALL JUST HAS NOT DROPPED FOR THEM IN THE AREAS. WHEN IT HAS DROPPED DOWN, THERE’S BEEN A JERSEY IN WHITE CLEAR IT AWAY. PREKI WILL BE HAPPY WITH THE WAY HIS TEAM HAS DEFENDED AND GRINDED ONE OUT. YOU GIVE ONE TEAM THAT ONE GREAT SCORING OPPORTUNITY AND THEY FINISH ON IT, THAT’S ALL YOU NEED.>>Mike: TO YOUR POINT, I DON’T THINK WE HAVE HAD TO CALL ON GRINWIS AS AN OUTSTANDING SAVE. HE HAS MADE A COUPLE OF GOOD SAVES, BUT HE REALLY HASN’T BEEN TESTED TONIGHT. THAT ONE VERY QUESTIONABLE HERE AS STOJKOV GOES DOWN.>>Lee: THIS IS, YOU KNOW, I SENSE THE CROWD’S FRUSTRATION. MINIMAL CONTACT. THERE IS ALLOWED TO BE SOME CONTACT IN THIS SPORT. THIS IS NOT FLAG FOOTBALL OUT THERE. IT’S A BIT OF A CONTACT SPORT. THERE IS GOING TO BE CALLS THAT ARE 50/50. HAS NO SENSE OF FLOW WHEN THE WHISTLE IS BLOWN AFTER EVERY LITTLE INSTANT OF SOME SORT OF CONTACT.>>Mike: THAT’S THE THING HERE. THESE TOUCH THINGS ARE CALLED, AND YET AN OBVIOUS PULL-DOWN IN THE BOX TEN YARD WITHIN AN OFFICIAL AND IT’S NOT. I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S BECAUSE THE BOX. IF IT’S OUTSIDE THE BOX, WE HAVE SEEN THAT WHISTLE CALLED TONIGHT. IT’S NOT JUST AS A FAN OF THE ROWDIES, BUT BOTH SIDES.>>Lee: IF IT WENT THE OTHER WAY, ST. LOUIS WOULD BE ARGUING ABOUT THE WAY IT WAS BECAUSE IT HAD THE WRITING ON THAT IMMEDIATELY WHEN THERE WERE TWO CARDS IN THE FIRST TEN MINUTE OF THE MATCH. YOU KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE A LONG NIGHT IN THAT AREA OF THE GAME. AND YOU DO WANT THE PLAYERS TO DECIDE THE GAME. THAT’S THE FRUSTRATING PART THAT AN OFFICIAL HAS HAD A DIRECT OUTCOME ON THE MATCH TONIGHT.>>Mike: ON THE COUNTERATTACK FOR ST. LOUIS. TYLER DAVID WITH IT. GIVEN A LITTLE TOO MUCH TIME HERE ON THE PRESSURE.>>Lee: AND THIS COULD BE THE FATIGUE PART OF T WITH ALL THESE GAMES, IT’S GETTING LATE INTO IT. HOW MUCH IS LEFT IN THE TANK. THEY HAVE TO TURN AROUND AND PLAY ON WEDNESDAY.>>Mike: ST. LOUIS ABLE TO CUE IT IN. GUZMAN WITH MKANDAWIRE. THAT LOOSE BALL. NOW A CHANCE HERE, PLAYED BACK ACROSS. PICKENS WITH THE SAVE! THAT COULD HAVE REALLY PUT IT IN. TYLER DAVID ON TARGET. BUT AT MATT PICKENS.>>Lee: IT WOULD HAVE. YOU CAN SEE MATT YELLING AT THE DEFENSE. THEY SWITCHED OFF.>>Mike: IT WAS GRADUALLY DONE OUT THERE. NIKE IS AN OFFICIAL SPONSOR OF THE USL. FOR MORE INFORMATION VISIT NIKESOCCER.COM. BROWN IS INTO THE AREA. COLE HAS IT POKED AWAY. THROW-IN FOR THE ROWDIES. DARWIN JONES LOOKING FOR HELP. IN FOR BROWN. SENT BACK UP THE FIELD. COLLINS WILL GET THEIR FIRST. BACK TO PICKENS. DARWIN JONES ABLE TO TURN, SWATS IT IN FOR KING. DARNELL KING, BACK ACROSS. GOOD JOB DEFENSIVELY BY ST. LOUIS. THAT’S OVER THE WALL. IT WILL BE A CORNER KICK FOR THE ROWDIES. BALL PLAYED IN. NANCHOFF. GOAL, ROWDIES! COLLINS. WE ARE TIED, 87th MINUTE!>>Lee: LOOK AT THE SMILE ON THE BIG MAN’S FACE. NEILL COLLINS, A PERFECTLY EXECUTED CORNER KICK. THEY HAD SO MANY AND COULDN’T CONNECT. THIS TIME ABUBBLE BALL SENT — A BEAUTIFUL BALL SENT UP AND IN. HE HEADS THAT INTO THE BACK CORNER OF THE NET. THIS ONE IS NOT OVER YET.>>Mike: GRINWIS COMPLAINING THAT JOE COLE WAS HOLDING HIM. COLE WITH HIS HANDS BY HIS SIDE MADE GRINWIS RUN AROUND HIM. AND NEILL COLLINS MADE NO MISTAKE FROM FIVE YARDS OUT. ROWDIES ARE TIED. BALL SENT BACK. COLE IS GOING TO BE UNDER PRESSURE. NOW UP FOR JONES. CAN THE ROWDIES GET A GO-AHEAD GOAL. THEY GOT THE EQUALIZER LATE. COLE, DROPS THE THROW FOR NANCHOFF. GREAT CORNER BY NANCHOFF ON THE ASSIST. SAVAGE INTO SCHAFER. COLLINS NOW WIDE. THAT ONE, MISCOMMUNICATION WITH JORDAN.>>Lee: MIKE, I KNOW ONE PERSON THAT WILL BE SUPER-HAPPY ABOUT THAT GOAL BY NEILL COLLINS. IT WILL BE MY SISTER, DOWN VISITING. SHE’S BATTLING BREAST CANCER. NEILL COLLINS WAS FANTASTIC TO TALK WITH HER. A GREAT PERSON ON AND OFF THE PITCH. NO ONE DESERVES THAT GOAL MORE THAN NEILL COLLINS TO TIE THAT UP. I THANK HIM FOR SPENDING TIME WITH HER AT TRAINING. IT BRIGHTENED HER DAY. HE’S GOT THE EQUALIZER.>>Mike: HE HAS A CHANCE HERE. ANOTHER CORNER KICK. NANCHOFF, HE WILL SEND THIS ACROSS. THIS ONE IS HEADED UP, TEED UP, DARWIN JONES, ABLE TO RUN IT DOWN. HERE’S SCHAFER. SCHAFER SEND IT WIDE FOR NANCHOFF. JUST DROPS IT IN. MARCEL SCHAFER CONTINUES TO RUN. NOW ON TOP OF THE GOAL HERE IN THE 90th MINUTE. THEY SIT AND WAIT ON THAT, THEY HAVE PLAY IT OUT. INJURED PLAYER INTO THE CORNER FOR ST. LOUIS. CRAMPING.>>Lee: FOUR MINUTES IS GOING UP, MIKE. THIS IS GOING TO EVEN ADD MORE TO THAT FOUR MINUTES. WE COULD SEE FIVE OR SIX MINUTES. PREKI TALKED ABOUT THIS BEFORE THE GAME. HE WAS GLAD IT WASN’T TOO HUMID HERE. THIS IS NO SURPRISE THAT LATE INTO THE GAME WITH THE LACK OF MATCH PLAY FOR ST. LOUIS FC, THEY ARE STARTING TO CRAMP.>>Mike: STOJKOV IS THE ONE NOW. NOW FIVE MINUTES.>>Lee: YEAH.>>Mike: BUT WE ARE INTO STOPPAGE TIME. WANT TO ROLL THEM OFF THE SIDE.>>Lee: THAT’S WHAT THEY ARE ASKING. THAT’S WHAT SHOULD BE DONE.>>Mike: ON THE CRAMP, WE’LL SEE WHETHER OR NOT THEY MOVE HIM OFF TO THE SIDE. STOJKOV REFUSING TO DO IT. HE DOES HAVE A CAUTION EARLIER. YOU CAN’T OBVIOUSLY GET IT. HE IS MAKING HIS WAY OFF NOW. SO GRINWIS WILL HAVE THE GOAL KICK. WE ARE ALL SQUARE AT 1 IN STOPPAGE TIME.>>Lee: GRINWIS SEES THE BALL. HE KNOW THAT BALL WENT OVER AND SAT UP ON TOP OF THE GOAL. HE LEFT IT THERE. TRYING TO WASTE MORE TIME, IF SOMETHING HAPPENS, HAVE A COMPLAINT. THAT BALL WAS SITTING ON THE TOP OF THE BACK OF THE NET.>>Mike: COLLINS WINS THE HEADER. SAVAGE UP FOR BROWN. DESHORN BROWN TURNS. HE’S INTO THE BOX. HE WILL BRING IT ACROSS, DEFLECTED. BROWN FOR THE REBOUND. CLEARED AWAY. TYLER DAVID WILL SEND IT UP. IT’S BLOCKED. SECOND BALL BY BROWN. BROWN IS RUN INTO. NOW ST. LOUIS WILL HAVE THE SECOND BALL. TYLER DAVID HAS BEEN A DIFFERENCE-MAKER. HE’S BEEN GOOD. NOW THE ROWDIES WITH NUMBERS. IT’S GEORGI HRISTOV, COLE IS RUNNING INSIDE, HE’S BEHIND HIM. DOESN’T GET IT. ST. LOUIS WILL LOOK. MAYBE THEY GOT NUMBERS NOW. BACK OUT, STOJKOV IS BACK ON THE FIELD. GOOD TOUCH. COLLINS WILL GET TO IT FIRST. THEY WILL FLAY BACK TO HIS GOALKEEPER.>>Lee: I THOUGHT HRISTOV WOULD PUSH IT OUT FURTHER TO THE WING.>>Mike: THAT BALL HAD EYES BY PICKENS TO GET TO BROWN. THERE’S A LOT OF WHITE SHIRTS AROUND THE BALL RIGHT NOW. MKANDAWIRE, ANOTHER TACKLE ON THAT ONE. NANCHOFF WITH IT. NANCHOFF LOOKING LONG. HRISTOV IS OUTSIDE. COULDN’T GO ON THAT HESITATION BY NANCHOFF, THE LINE OF ST. LOUIS STEPPED UP AND BROUGHT HRISTOV OUTSIDE. AND THEY WILL TAKE THEIR TIME AS GRINWIS LIGHTLY GOES, KNOWING HE HAS ANOTHER FIVE YARD OR SO TO GO. HE WILL SPIN IT INTO PLAY. 94th MINUTE, SHOULD HAVE TWO. MIGHT GET A LITTLE EXTRA TO THAT. WE DID HAVE THE INJURY. THAT ONE IS HEADED AWAY BY MKANDAWIRE. SCHAFER. HERE’S DAVID, ALTHOUGH HIS PASS FROM SAVAGE. DESHORN BROWN DIDN’T GO ON. ROWDIES DECIDE TO PINCH IN ST. LOUIS AT THIS POINT BECAUSE THEY ARE INSIDE THEIR AREA, 12 YARDS FROM THE LINE THEY WILL HAVE THE THROW. STANLEY HAS A LONG THROW. THEY WILL GET UP THE FIELD. NOW A CHANCE. HERE’S DAVID. HE’S GOT HELP. STREAKING RUNNERS. DARNELL KING WILL BE THERE BEFORE IT CAN FIND THE WAY TO GUZMAN. STANLEY WHO HAS THE LONG THROW BEING TOLD TO GET IT INTO PLAY. ROWDIES, NANCHOFF AND COLE WILL FORCE THE BALL BACKWARDS. OPPORTUNITY NOW AS NANCHOFF WILL TRY TO GO TO COLE. ROWDIES FORCE ST. LOUIS TO GO BACK TO THEIR GOAL. GRINWIS ON THE LEFT FOOT SEND IT UP THE FIELD. KING. HERE’S CABALCETA. HE WILL GET IT TO DAVID. PICKENS WILL GET TO IT. WE HAVE HIT THE 95th MINUTE. THAT IS THE FINAL WHISTLE. ST. LOUIS AND THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES FINISH THIS ONE IN A TIE AT 1 HERE AT AL LANG STADIUM. BODIES ARE DROPPING LIKE CRAZY FOR ST. LOUIS.>>Lee: THEY DIDN’T PLAY THE FULL FIVE MINUTES.>>Mike: HEATHER IS WITH PREKI.>>Heather: THANK YOU. COACH, YOU COME AWAY FROM THIS ONE WITH A POINT. ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH THAT RESULT?>>NOT REALLY. WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN 2-0 UP. WE HAD A GREAT CHANCE TO FINISH. THAT WAS THE ONLY SHOT IN THE SECOND HALF THAT MEANT SOMETHING. IT IS WHAT IT IS. WE’LL TAKE THE POINT. THEY ARE STILL A GOOD TEAM AND WE WORK VERY HARD TONIGHT.>>Heather: THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.>>Mike: THANK YOU, HEATHER. LEE, I CAN TELL YOU THAT THERE’S NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE HAPPY WITH THE WAY THIS ONE ENDED UP. I THINK THE OFFICIALS MADE THEIR WAY OFF, A FEW PLAYERS HAVE THEIR WORD.>>Heather: COACH, YOU HANG ON TO THE POINT HERE AT HOME. WHAT DO YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THIS MATCH TONIGHT?>>GREAT CHARACTER BY THE GUYS. A LITTLE BIT OF A SETBACK, KEPT GOING, KEPT GOING. THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE TIME ADDED, IF THERE WAS, WE COULD HAVE MADE THE WINNER.>>Mike: YOU ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A BUSY STRETCH OF GAMES. HOW IS THE TEAM DOING RIGHT NOW JUST PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY? WHAT’S THE MINDSET?>>Lee: THEY ARE A FIT TEAM. 1-0 DOWN. EASY TO FEEL SORRY FOR OURSELVES. BUT WE DIDN’T. WE RAISED IT. LIKE I SAY, A LITTLE LONGER, WE COULD HAVE GOTTEN THE WINNER.>>Mike: WE HAVE THE POST GAME COMING UP. WE’LL GET THIS FOR YOU. YOU ARE WATCHING TAMPA BAY ROWDIES SOCCER ON THIS TV TAMPA BAY.>>Mike: ROWDIES FINISH IN A 1-1 DRAW. OUR COVERAGE STARTS AT 7:00 P.M. IN TWO WEEKS AS THEY TAKE ON THE RHINOS. AS WE MENTIONED, 1-1 DRAW TONIGHT. OUR POST GAME STARTS RIGHT NOW. THE POST GAME STARTS RIGHT NOW.>>Lee: WELCOME TO AL LANG STADIUM. THE TAMPA BAY ROWDIES AND ST. LOUIS FC DRAW AT 1 TONIGHT. MIKE PEPPER ALONG SIDE LEE GODFREY. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE RESULT, WE’LL BE TALKING A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE OFFICIATING TONIGHT. YOU GOT TO GIVE CREDIT TO ST. LOUIS. WE HEARD FROM PREKI. THEY LIMITED THE CHANCES OF THE ROWDIES. ST. LOUIS DID A GOOD JOB DOING WHAT THEY NEEDED TO DO.>>Lee: I THINK IT’S A TALE OF TWO COACHES SEEING THE GAME DIFFERENTLY. STUART CAMPBELL FRUSTRATED THERE WASN’T MORE TIME. PREKI SAID WE SHOULD HAVE WON 2-0 AND NOT GIVEN THEM THAT OPPORTUNITY. THE ROWDIES HAD THEIR OPPORTUNITIES IN THE FIRST HALF WHERE THEY COULDN’T GET THAT GOAL. WE LOOK AT THE HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE FULL 90 MINUTES IN THIS ONE. THERE WERE A LOT OF OPPORTUNITY ESPECIALLY ON SET PIECES. JOE COLE GETS THIS ONE UP AND OVER. BUT IT IS THE KEEPER GETTING HIS HAND ON THAT ONE IN GRINWIS. AND THAT’S THE WAY IT WAS. GOOD JOB TRACKING BACK AS ST. LOUIS ALMOST HAD ONE ON THE COUNTERATTACK. TAMIKA MKANDAWIRE COMING IN ON STOJKOV AND MAKING THAT TACKLE THEIR BEST CHANCE IN THE FIRST 45 MINUTES OF PLAY. IT WAS A SCRAPPY AFFAIR. A LOT OF CARDS GIVEN OUT, THE BATTLE BETWEEN CHARPIE AND FERNANDES. THERE WAS NO CALL ON THAT PLAY THERE. SO WHAT WAS CALLED AND WHAT WASN’T CALLED WAS SO FRUSTRATING THROUGHOUT THE GAME FOR BOTH TEAMS. THERE WAS SO MUCH INCONSISTENCY. GRINWIS PUNCHING THIS ONE AWAY FROM DANGER. JOE COLE DRABBED FROM BEHIND THAT. SET UP A FREE KICK IN THE SAME AREA WHERE ST. LOUIS SCORED IN THE SECOND HALF. BUT THERE NANCHOFF PUTS IT WIDE. I DIDN’T THINK THERE WAS MUCH ON A FREE KICK. THAT IS THE FREE KICK GIVEN FOR THE GOAL RIGHT HERE AS IT IS ANGULO WHO IS ABLE TO BEND THAT ONE PERFECTLY OVER THE WALL AND INTO THE NEAR POST THERE ON WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A WEAK FOUL. YOU KNOW WHAT, IT CAME DOWN TO THE END. NEILL COLLINS HEADS THIS ONE IN TO SAVE A POINT FOR THE ROWDIES.>>Mike: YEAH. ON THE FREE KICK IT WAS AN ADVANTAGE THAT SHE PLAYED ON, BUT IT WAS BEHIND THE PLAY WHERE WE SAW THAT WHISTLE GO. YOU CAN SEE THE DOMINATION OF THE SHOTS, CORNERS FOR THE TEAMS. AS PREKI POINTED OUT, ST. LOUIS DID A GREAT JOB OF LIMITING THOSE DANGEROUS CHANCES FOR THE ROWDIES TONIGHT.>>Lee: THEY DID. ALL THE NUMBERS SAY THIS SHOULD BE A ROWDIES VICTORY. THAT’S THE WAY YOU SCRAP OUT A GAME. THEY ARE NOT ALL PRETTY. KUDOS TO THE DEFENDING GETTING THAT GOAL AND MATT PICKENS MADE A BIG SCORE BEFORE THEY KEPT IT AT 1-0.>>Mike: WE HAVE MORE COMING UP.>>Mike: 90 MINUTES PLAYED TONIGHT. TAMPA BAY ROWDIES FINISH 1-1.>>Heather: YOU WERE FIGHTING SO HARD TO GET THE EQUALIZER THERE AT THE END. WHAT WAS IT LIKE OUT THERE FOR YOU?>>WHEN WE LOST THE GOAL, WE COULD HAVE PITCHED ON AND WON THE GAME. WE HAD A TOUGH WEEK. I THINK IT SHOWS THE FITNESS OF THE TEAM, WE WERE PUSHING STRONG AT THE END. IT WAS A TOUGH GAME. WE WANTED 3 POINTS, BUT THE FANS CAN SEE THE PASSION AND ENERGY. WE JUST COULDN’T QUITE GET THE DECISIONS TO FALL FOR US.>>Lee: YOU SCORED YOUR FIRST GOAL OF THE SEASON HERE. TAKE ME THROUGH THAT PLAY FROM YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON THE FIELD.>>IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING. IT WAS GETTING CLOSER. I WAS GLAD TO GET INTO THAT ONE. CHANGING A COUPLE OF THINGS AND IT WORKED PERFECTLY.>>Heather: THANKS. GUYS. NEILL COLLINS, OUTSTANDING TONIGHT. WE TALKED ABOUT HIM DEFENSIVELY. BUT TONIGHT ON THE GOAL, TOO.>>Lee: HE WORKS BOTH END OF THE BALL. HERE’S A LOOK AT HIM, A DESPERATE MOMENT FOR THE ROWDIES. HE’S ABLE TO GET UP PRETTY MUCH UNMARKED IN THIS ONE AND HE GETS THE TYING GOAL.>>Mike: HE WAS CELEBRATING THERE. IT WAS AN EQUALIZER. BUT EVERYONE GOT THEIR SISTER KICKED. THEY TIE AT 1. YOU ARE WATCHING TAMPA BAY ROWDIES SOCCER ON THIS TV TAMPA BAY.>>Mike: WELCOME BACK TO AL LANG STADIUM, ROWDIES AND ST. LOUIS TIE AT 1. THEY ASKED MKANDAWIRE TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE.>>Heather: TAM, YOU GOT YOUR FIRST USL APPEARANCE OF THE SEASON. HOW DID IT FEEL TO BE BACK OUT THERE?>>ALWAYS NICE TO PLAY. DISAPPOINTED WE DIDN’T GET THE 3 POINTS. WE HAVE ANOTHER BIG GAME ON TUESDAY. WE’LL TAKE THE DRAW AND MOVE ON.>>Heather: WHAT DO YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THIS ONE? I KNOW YOU WISH DISAPPOINTED IN THE RESULT. WHAT DO YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE PERFORMANCE?>>I THOUGHT WE SHOWED GREAT CHARACTER. WE WENT A GOAL DOWN AGAINST A FREE KICK. THE BOYS DID WELL TO COME BACK. AND I THOUGHT WE PLAYED REALLY WELL. I THOUGHT WE WERE THE BETTER SIDE. THEY WERE THE BETTER TEAM, IT’S A GOOD POINT IN THE END.>>Heather: YOU HAD A LOT OF GAMES RECENTLY. HOW IS EVERYONE DOING PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, WHAT’S THE MOOD IN THE LOCKER ROOM?>>THE MOOD IS GOOD. WE ARE A TIGHT KNIT GROUP. WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO TRY TO PUT AS MANY POINTS ON THE BOARD AS WE CAN. THE MOOD IS POSITIVE.>>Mike: TAM, STILL ONE OF THE LEADERS. THE CAPTAIN, JOE COLE WAS OUT THERE. BUT HE’S A PLAYER TO WATCH.>>Lee: WHEN YOU CAN SLIDE IN TAM, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO MISS A BEAT. THEY KNOW EACH OTHER SO WELL. HE DOESN’T PANIC. HE MAKES THE STOP. DOESN’T ALLOW IT TO GO FOR A CORNER KICK. PUSHES IT FORWARD. A SOLID DEFENDING. THIS WAS A GOAL CHANGER THERE. LOOK AT ANGULO, HE CAN’T BELIEVE THAT BALL DIDN’T GET THROUGH TO HIM FOR AN OPPORTUNITY. GREAT MINUTES FOR MKANDAWIRE TONIGHT.>>Mike: THAT WAS CRITICAL. AND WE HAVE A LITTLE MORE TO COME UP ON THE POST GAME SHOW. ROWDIES AND ST. LOUIS TIED AT 1.>>Mike: WELCOME BACK TO AL LANG STADIUM. ROWDIES AND ST. LOUIS, THE ROWDIES CONTROLLED PLOY, BUT IT WAS A COUPLE OF OPPORTUNITIES THAT PERHAPS WERE REALLY DIFFERENCE-MAKERS AS THE ROWDIES WERE LOOKING FOR THAT FIRST GOAL, DIDN’T GET IT. I THINK THE FANS WERE A LITTLE UPSET. WE SAW A LOT OF FOULS CALLED TONIGHT. WHEN IT CAME INTO THE BOK, WE SAW — BOX.>>Lee: JOE COLE GETTING PULLED DOWN BY WALLS. AN ABSOLUTE PULL ON THEER U.S. I’M SURPRISED A HAND BALL COULD HAVE BEEN CALLED. BUT IT WASN’T. YOU SEE THE PULL. SHE’S RIGHT THERE AND DOES NOT MAKE THAT CALL. JOE COLE IS ABSOLUTELY INNOCENCED. NEILL COLLINS GETS UP HERE AND GETS THE GAME-TYING GOAL. THREE MINUTES AFTER THAT PLAY THERE WAS A FOUL THAT LED TO THEIR FREE KICK GOAL. SO THAT WAS SO FRUSTRATING IN THAT FIVE MINUTE SPAN FOR THE ROWDIES. THEY MANAGE A POINT AND GET UP TO 21. FC CINCINNATI JUMPS UP TO 4th WITH A VICTORY AS WELL TONIGHT. YOU ARE UP THERE RIGHT NOW. BUT YOU WANT TO GET THOSE FULL 3 POINTS AT HOME.>>Lee: YOU CAN SEE LOUISVILLE CITY. IT IS A KEY POINT. ROWDIES IN THE MIDST OF A BUSY SCHEDULE. YOU ARE FACING A GOOD TEAM. HERE’S WHAT’S COMING UP, NOT LISTED THERE, IS THE WEDNESDAY NIGHT GAME, THEY TRAVEL TO MIAMI TO FACE IN THE U.S. OPEN CUP MATCH AGAINST MIAMI. AND AT CHARLOTTE ON SUNDAY. WE COME BACK IN TWO WEEKS AGAINST ROCHESTER. THEN A STRETCH OF ROAD GAMES. IF THEY WIN THEY PLAY AT ORLANDO, AT RICHMOND, AT PITTSBURGH, EVEN AT CHARLESTON. CRITICAL SCHEDULE HERE.>>Lee: A LOT OF GAMES ON THE ROAD.>>Mike: ABSOLUTELY. WE’LL BE BACK HERE TWO WEEKS FROM TONIGHT AS THE ROCHESTER RHINOS, WHO THE ROWDIES LOST TO ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, THEY WILL LOOK FOR REVENGE. KICKOFF IS AT 7:30. TONIGHT, YOU KNOW WHAT? THEY SCRAMBLED AND THEY GOT THE MUCH NEEDED POINT.>>Lee: YOU DO. PICKENS MADE THE POINT. THEY NEVER GAVE UP. THEY GOT THE LATE GOAL AND TIED IT AND COME OUT WITH SOMETHING.>>Mike: ABSOLUTELY. YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE A FEW MORE GOALS HERE AND THERE. SO FOR HEATHER WHO HAS BEEN WORKING ON THE FIELD, LEE GODFREY, I’M MIKE PEPPER. IF YOU MISSED ANYTHING, CATCH THE MANSION FIVE.
