ST. PETESBURG, FL (August 23, 2014) – A late goal by midfielder Tiyi Shipalane was all the Carolina RailHawks (3W-0T-5L, 9pts) needed to defeat the Tampa Bay Rowdies (3W-0T-3L, 9pts) 1-0 and earn 3 valuable points on Saturday night at Al Lang Stadium in Florida.

“We are delighted with the win,” said RailHawks Head Coach Colin Clarke. “It has been a tough couple of weeks for us losing some heartbreakers at home – we also had a tough time on the road this season, but we now have two road wins in a row. We needed this win and I think we deserved it.”


The first half is one that both team would like to forget as neither team was able to create any dangerous opportunities.


In the 91st minute of play, RailHawks midfielder Tiyi Shipalane scored his fourth goal of the season and seventh against the Tampa Bay Rowdies. After receiving the ball from Daniel Jackson, Shipalane unleashed a blast from inside of the Rowdies area that left Rowdies goalkeeper Matt Pickens with nothing to do.


The RailHawks will return to WakeMed Soccer Park on Saturday, August 30th to face southern rivals, Atlanta Silverbacks, at 7:30 p.m. For more information about the game and to purchase tickets, visit or call the Johnson Maserati Box Office at 919-459-8144.

Los Carolina RailHawks Ganan Partido Crucial

Vencen a los Tampa Bay Rowdies 1-0 como visitante


ST. PETESBURG, FL (23 de agosto del 2014) – Un gol en la segunda parte por parte de Tiyi Shipalane fue todo lo que los Carolina RailHawks necesitaron para vencer a los Tampa Bay Rowdies el sábado en la noche en el Al Lang Stadium de Saint Petersburg, Florida.


“Estamos encantados con la victoria,” dijo el entrenador de los RailHawks Colin Clarke. “Hemos tenido un par de semanas muy difíciles. Hasta hace un par de semanas nos estaba constatando bastante ganar como visitante – pero hoy logramos nuestra segunda victoria consecutiva. Necesitábamos esta victoria y yo creo que nos la merecimos.”


Ambos equipos querrán olvidarse de una primera parte en la que no pudieron generar oportunidades peligrosas.


Ya en la segunda parte, y en tiempo agregado el mediocampista de los RailHawks Tiyi Shipalane anotaría su cuarto gol de la temporada y séptimo en contra de los Tampa Bay Rowdies. Shipalane recibió un balón por parte de Daniel Jackson y con un fuerte disparo dentro del área dejo sin nada que hacer al portero de los Rowdies Matt Pickens.


Los RailHawks regresan al WakeMed Soccer Park el próximo sábado, para enfrentarse a los Atlanta Silverbacks. Las entradas para este partido están ya a la venta. Para mas información del partido o de cómo comprar tus entradas, visita: o llama a la Johnson Maserati Box Office al 919-459-8144.
