Here's a look at how the Eastern Conference matches we highlighted in our preview last week ended up.

Tampa Bay Rowdies 1 - 1 Ottawa Fury FC
Al Lang Stadium, St. Petersburg, Fla.

Ottawa scored a goal in the 3rd minute, but Georgi Hristov's second goal in as many games came just eight minutes later to level the match.

Rochester Rhinos 0 - 1 Charleston Battery
Capelli Sport Stadium, Rochester, N.Y.

Charleston broke its slump with a late road win in Rochester. The Battery had gone seven games without a win before Justin Portillo claimed all three points with a goal in the 83rd minute.

Charlotte Independence 1 - 1 Orlando City B
Sportsplex at Matthews, Matthews, N.C.

Like the Rowdies match, the Charlotte-Orlando clash featured two very early goals and then no more. Hadji Barry converted a penalty in the 5th minute, but David Estrada equalized in the 7th minute to split the points.
