PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - The 20th season of Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC soccer kicked off Saturday night in St. Petersburg, Florida against the Tampa Bay Rowdies.

The Rowdies opened up the scoring Saturday night as Shawn Berry found the back of the net off of a corner kick in the 26th minute.  Pittsburgh had a few good chances before the end of the half, but Tampa Bay went into the halftime locker room with the 1-0 lead.

The Riverhounds had a few chances to tie the game up in the 2nd Half, but just couldn't convert to come away with at least a point.

The best chance for Pittsburgh to tie the game up in the 2nd half came on a nice feed to Dos Santos in the 76th minute, but he just couldn't get enough on it to get it past the Tampa Bay goalkeeper.

Zach Steinberger added a second goal for the Rowdies late in the 2nd half in the 86th minute and Tampa Bay (2-0) handed Pittsburgh (0-1) a 2-0 defeat to open up their season.

The Riverhounds travel to Kansas City, Kansas to take on the Swope Park Rangers Next Saturday at 5 pm.  The game will be on Pittsburgh's CW.
