The Tampa Bay Rowdies knocked off Birmingham Legion FC 1-0 in the second round of the United Soccer League playoffs.
Now, the team moves on to the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday at Al Lang Stadium. There, they will face off against Louisville City FC, the team the Rowdies beat in last year’s conference final.
Yann Ekra’s second-half goal proved the difference the last game.
“It’s a great advert for the league, two fantastic teams go head to head,” Rowdies Coach Neill Collins said. “We’re happy to be at this stage, we’re happy to have the game at our stadium.”
