Preview: Riverhounds SC vs. Philadelphia Union II

October 1, 2020 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC News Release

PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC (10-4-1) finishes its regular season with a match against Philadelphia Union II (2-10-3) on Saturday, Oct. 3 at Highmark Stadium. The match is set to kick off at 7 p.m. and will be televised on 22 The Point.

The Hounds look to win this match in hopes of securing the Group F title, as they currently sit one point behind first-place Hartford Athletic (10-3-2). Hartford would also have to lose or tie against New York Red Bulls II on Sunday, in addition to a Hounds win, if Pittsburgh were to clinch the group. If both teams would finish with the same point total, tiebreakers would first be total wins followed by goal differential (Pittsburgh has a +28 and Hartford has a +5 goal differential).

The winner of Group F would host either Indy Eleven or Saint Louis FC in the conference quarterfinals whereas the second place Group F team would travel to play Louisville City FC to open the postseason.

This will be the third match between the two clubs this season. In their first matchup back on July 18, the Hounds routed Union II, 6-0, at Subaru Park. When the teams met back on Aug. 1, the Hounds posted another shutout, defeating Union II, 4-0, at Highmark Stadium. With two first-half assists in this latter meeting, Kenardo Forbes set the all-time assist record in USL Championship play with 38 helpers.

In the Hounds' last match, they fell to Hartford Athletic, 1-0, on Sept. 26 at Highmark Stadium. Philadelphia fell to Hartford, 3-2, in its last match on Wednesday at Subaru Park.
