Rowdies unfazed by rare setback

[D-2 PRO LEAGUE] The Vancouver Whitecaps ended the expansion FC Tampa Bay Rowdies' seven-game unbeaten streak with a 1-0 win on Martin Nash's penalty kick in Sunday.

The Whitecaps took over first place in the NASL Conference with the win.

“It’s a game we could have won,” said Rowdies Coach Paul Dalglish.  “But if you look at the bigger picture for the whole of the season, we’re still doing very well.  One unlucky result isn’t going to end our season.”

Daniel Paladini's last-minute goal earned the Carolina RailHawks a 1-1 tie at Portland and extended the Timbers' winless streak to five games.

Ryan Pore had his league-high eighth goal for Portland.
