Reaction From HoundTahn: Riverhounds run out of steam early in 1-1 draw

The Pittsburgh Riverhounds played to a 1-1 draw against North Carolina FC in front of a raucous packed house on Saturday night, dominating play for the first third of the game before the pitch began to tilt back in their opponent’s favor.

Pittsburgh created numerous opportunities in the first half, breaking down the sidelines and mustering three shots on goal. They also recorded their lone tally of the night on a wide open shot from Edward Kizza, fed by Langston Blackstock.

Head coach Bob Lilley said the Hounds got too complacent as the game went on, with their wing-backs dropping into a defensive alignment rather than continuing to press the issue. Despite possessing the ball for nearly 60 percent of the first half, North Carolina FC ended up taking a slim lead in the category at the end of the game.

Riverhounds settle for 1-1 Draw vs North Carolina, extend league unbeaten streak to seven matches

Had the Riverhounds tallied more than one goal during their offensive onslaught, perhaps they could’ve coasted to victory. Instead, they snuck out of the match with just one point.
