The Riverhounds had a chance to tie the game up before the Half as they were rewarded a penalty kick after a hand ball in the box against Bethlehem, but Kerr was denied by Bethlehem Keeper Carlos and went into the locker room down by 1.

Pittsburgh was able to tie the game up at 2 early in the 2nd half as Joe Greenspan headed in a Corner kick in the 60th minute.  Both teams had a number of chances to take the lead in the 2nd half, but both Keeper's were able to keep the game even at 2.
