#PGHSOCCER SERIES (VIDEO): #PGHvCIN – A Soccer Rivalry Still In Works

In our third edition of #PGHSOCCER SERIES, we focus on coverage of FC Cincinnati’s 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh Riverhounds on Saturday at Highmark Stadium.
It was a match that was played with supporters groups from both sides adding to the pageantry and excitement of a week two USL match between two teams striving for their first win of the season.
With the win, FCC continued its dominance over Pittsburgh in close matches, shutting out the Hounds for the fourth time in four all-time meetings in just two years of competition.  Still, many of the loyal, passion fans in attendance would love to see this match-up become another in the line of Pittsburgh-Cincinnati sports rivalries.
This video features interviews with Jordan Allen (Steel Army) and Jared Handra (Die Innenstadt – FCC) along with FCC Head Coach Alan Koch and Riverhounds goalkeeper Trey Mitchell.  

Again, special thanks to Nick Milliron for his outstanding video work and for producing an excellent.
