Sounding Off on Soccer: Hitting homestretch of regular season with Riverhounds HC Bob Lilley and MF Marc Ybarra

On Wednesday, Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC Head Coach and second-year midfielder, Marc Ybarra, joined PSN’s John Krysinsky to talk about the season thus far, and the importance of finishing strong with six matches in the next six weeks.

The Hounds (14w, 9d, 5l, 51 points) currently hold a one-point edge in the race to finish atop the USL Championship’s Eastern Conference table, as Tampa Bay (50 points) and Charleston (49 points), are right in the thick of the race.

Pittsburgh will return to action for the first time since August 26, this Saturday, as they’ll host Loudoun United FC, at Highmark Stadium (7 p.m. kickoff).
