The Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC took on FC Tulsa at ONEOK Field in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Tuesday night in a match that ended in a scoreless draw, despite numerous chances on the table for the Hounds.

FINAL: Riverhounds SC 0, FC Tulsa 0

With this result, the Hounds remain without a loss (1-0-3 | W-L-D).

After the final whistle, Pittsburgh Soccer Now‘s John Krysinsky and Jordan Smith shared their thoughts and broke down a mostly choppy match that never had much rhythm including their thoughts on what appeared to be an Albert Dikwa goal which was denied by the match official in the first half, the Hounds’ tactical approach in letting Tulsa play into their pressure, their inability to convert despite the success they had in creating turnovers while putting forth another solid defensive outing and first clean sheet of the season.
