PITTSBURGH (March 5, 2017) – The Pittsburgh Riverhounds wrapped up a busy weekend of action with a 1-1 draw against the University of Charleston (W.Va) at Highmark Stadium.
Staying hot for the Hounds with goals in now three-straight was Corey Hertzog (51’), while Will Roberts (67’) picked up the lone tally for the Golden Eagles.
Hertzog opened up the scoring in second half with a pretty finish in the box in the 51st minute. Receiving a well placed through ball by Kay Banjo, Hertzog made a nifty move around Charleston’s goalkeeper to give himself space for the tally in tight.
The goal for Hertzog upped his team-leading total to four for the preseason.
Charleston would respond in the 67th minute after the Hounds failed to clear a corner kick in their own defensive end. Roberts was able to work himself to the loose ball and punch it past goalkeeper Trey Mitchell for the tying goal.
With the draw, the Hounds remain unbeaten in the preseason at 3-0-2. They continue preseason play on the road against the Rochester Rhinos on Monday, March 13 at 3 p.m.
