PITTSBURGH (May 12, 2019) – Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC will enter the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, facing the Dayton Dutch Lions at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14 at Highmark Stadium in a second-round showdown.

Like other USL Championship clubs, Pittsburgh enters Open Cup play in the second round of action. The team will look to advance into the third round for the second consecutive season.

On the other hand, Dayton arrives in the second round after defeating Erie Commodores FC, 2-1, on Wednesday, May 8. The USL League Two squad last played the Hounds in 2014, when both were members of the then-called USL Pro. Dayton and Pittsburgh split the 2014 series, each winning one of the two clashes.
