Kickoff is at 3 p.m.
Having been officially eliminated from playoff contention, the Riverhounds will try to spoil Bethlehem Steel FC’s bid to over take Orlando City B’s hold on the 8th and last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
The Hounds Corey Hertzog is leading the team with 12 goals but has not scored in the last two games.  With two games to go, we’ll see if the Reading, PA native can add a few more tallies to his total.
The Hounds are on a positive streak against teams with losing records and in the bottom half of the standings, coming off wins against Wilmington, Orlando City B and draws against Harrisburg City Islanders FC Cincinnati.  The team’s only blemish, 4-0 loss, coming against 4th place Charlotte last Saturday.
