Photo Gallery: Riverhounds fall to Monterey Bay FC, in heartbreaker

The Pittsburgh Riverhounds took on Monterey Bay FC in the first-ever meeting between the two clubs at Highmark Stadium on Saturday night.

The result was yet another disappointing one for the home side, as the Hounds dropped the match to MBFC, 1-0, surrending a stoppage time goal on an inexplicable defensive lapse.

PSN’s Griffin Floyd had the match recap from Highmark Stadium.

And, PSN’s Ed Thompson was there to capture the action on the field and festivities.

It was another large crowd, plus a special guest, former WWE legend, ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan was there to meet the fans and deliver the game ball.
