Riverhounds are one of two non-MLS teams remaining in the tournament, and are trying to reach the Quarterfinals of the US Open Cup for the second time in club history.
The Riverhounds reached this round of the tournament in 2001 and have never beaten two MLS sides in the same tournament, a feat which they could accomplish against Columbus as they recently beat the New England Revolution in the previous round. 2023 also marks the first time in club history that the Riverhounds have been able to tally three wins in the same tournament (one of the wins was a forfeit win in Round 2 vs. Rochester New York FC). P
Riverhounds Head Coah Bob Lilley is sixth in the Modern Era of the Open Cup with 21 coaching wins.
The Riverhounds are fresh off a 4-1 win over the weekend against Las Vegas that saw Edward Kizza bag a first half brace.
Arturo Ordonez and Danny Griffin also scored for Pittsburgh as they have now won four of their last six taking nine league points during that stretch, as well as two US Open Cup wins. Griffin, a New England native, was the runner-up for the last round’s TheCup.us Player of the Round award for scoring the lone goal against the Revolution.
On Monday, we took a deeper look at the relationship and the history between the two clubs in the latest edition of Hounds Notebook.
