PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC remain unbeaten after a 2-2 tie against the Tampa Bay Rowdies Saturday in St. Petersburg, FL.

The Hounds record now stands at 4-0-5, a club-record unbeaten streak.

Tampa struck first in the 3rd minute, marking the first time the Hounds have trailed in a game all season.  The game was tied in the 20th minutes after Tampa defender Max Lachowecki got the ball in his own goal.

Hounds forward Romeo Parkes scored to give Pittsburgh a 2-1 lead headed into the half but Tampa scored in the 59th minute to tie the game 2-2.

Hounds coach Bob Lilley said after the game, “It was a game we let points slip away,” Lilley said. “There were plenty of positive signs. We just have to mature as a team. We did a lot of good things, but it takes maturity to win. Some of these ties we have to grow tactically and be able to manage these games.”

Lilley added he was pleased with the team being able to respond after being behind in a match for the first time this season after having the lead or being tied for 723 straight minutes.

Pittsburgh will play FC Cincinnati in a non-league game this Wednesday at Highmark Stadium in the third round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and return to league action Saturday at home against Penn FC.
