On June 10, 1980, the Rogues beat the Tampa Bay Rowdies 2-0. This was the first (and only) outdoor win the Rogues had against the Rowdies. There was quite a bit of local hype for this game because the Rowdies had beaten the Rogues for the NASL Indoor Championship the previous winter. Goals by Jado Hasanbegovic and Paul Child plus a Bob Stetler shutout gave the Rogues a memorable home victory.
Rogues line-up: B. Stetler, M. Stankovic, J. Berrio, J. Hasanbegovic, B. Thomson, A. Carbognani, P. Cannell, P. Child, D. Stride, M. Stojsavljevic, J. Faulkner.
Subs used: P. D'Agostino, T. Field, J. Husband.
