ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (March 26, 2018) — Tampa Bay Rowdies winger Leo Fernandes has been selected as the Tampa Bay Rowdies’ Man of the Match by fans following his performance in Saturday night’s 2-0 win over Bethlehem Steel FC.
Fernandes scored the second goal, receiving a pass from David Najem and then beating his defender one-on-one to create space to shoot. His low shot to the far post beat Bethlehem goalkeeper John McCarthy.
Fernandes celebrated the goal with hugs for his father and infant son, Leo Jr. He has now scored in both of Tampa Bay’s matches this season.
