FC Tampa Bay stays a little closer to home tonight to play a mid-week preseason match against St. Leo University. Although St. Leo is located near Dade City, the two teams will be facing off at the Azalea Soccer Club in Saint Petersburg starting at 7:30.
The Rowdies are coming off of a 3-0 shutout against UCF last Sunday, the team's second shutout of the preseason. Newly signed defender Omar Jarun will be eligible to play, so we probably won't be seeing assistant coach David Hayes in the backfield tonight. Although newly signed forward Warren Ukah will not play tonight, he will be eligible on Sunday against the USF Bulls.
So far this preseason University of Tampa graduate Pascal Millien leads the team with 3 goals, and Chad Burt has one goal and four assists. This game is only a few minutes away from the team's new digs at Al Lang Field so if you live in the St. Petersburg area it's a nice (free) activity for a Wednesday night during Spring Break.
