WATCH: Atlanta United loanee Junior Burgos scores first goal with Rowdies

Burgos finally gets on the score sheet!

It's been a long time since we talked about Atlanta United's second signed player, Junior Burgos, but he's made the highlight reel after scoring his first goal with the Tampa Bay Rowdies since joining the team on loan.

Burgos came on in the 63rd minute and scored on a long-distance shot that tied that game at one in the 84th against NASL rival, Jacksonville Armada.

Burgos lined up a shot from about 25-30 yards and drilled a low ball that bounced a yard in front of the keeper, making it difficult for the net-minder to adjust to the bounce.

With the draw, the Rowdies improve to second in the NASL Spring standings with 16 points behind the New York Cosmos who sit atop the table with 18 points.

The Rowdies will next travel to Columbus to take on the Columbus Crew in the fourth round of the US Open Cup on Wednesday, June 15.
