ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (August 21, 2017) — Tampa Bay Rowdies fans have selected Georgi Hristov as their Man of the Match for his performance in the Rowdies' 1-1 draw against Ottawa Fury FC on Saturday night.

Hristov scored Tampa Bay's only goal of the match when a Marcel Schäfer cross from the left wing was partially cleared into the path of Hristov on the edge of the box. Hristov took advantage of the mistake, pouncing on the ball and finishing past Fury FC goalkeeper Callum Irving to cancel out Tampa Bay's early deficit.

It was Hristov's team-high eighth goal of the season and his second in as many weeks.
