Rowdies Seek Another Upset

The Tampa Bay Rowdies hope to play the role of “giant killer” once again, Wednesday night, when they travel to Jeld-Wen Stadium in Portland to face Major League Soccer’s Timbers.

The game is a fourth round match up in the U.S. Open Cup with a berth in the quarterfinals on the line.

The Rowdies head west as heavy underdogs but have a fresh memory of their big third round upset of the Seattle Sounders, also from MLS. The Sounders had reached the previous four U.S. Open Cup championship rounds.
