The Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC and Louisville City FC showed why they’re two of the tougher defensive clubs in the USL Championship, playing to a hard-fought, scoreless draw at Highmark Stadium on Saturday night.

FINAL: Riverhounds SC 0, Louisville City FC 0

With the result, the Hounds (8-2-7, 31 points), are now level with Charleston Battery at the top of the USL Championship’s Eastern Conference standings.

Between the two teams, only one shot found its way on frame, with goalkeepers Luis Zamudio and Oliver Zemmle picking up clean sheets.

PSN’s Ed Thompson was there to capture the action, as the fans braved the elements, with most sticking things out when the rain was coming down hard at the midway point in the first half.


The rest of the match was played with intermittent rain, then after the final whistle, the skies opened once again, as Hounds HC had his players on the field for a post match talk.
