PITTSBURGH (May 2, 2017) – The Pittsburgh Riverhounds (2-3-2) play their second game in five days, 
hosting Toronto FC II (1-2-3) at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 3 at Highmark Stadium 
in the USL Game of the Week.

Coming off their first home win and shutout of the season, a 1-0 victory over the 
Harrisburg City Islanders, the Hounds will look to capture back-to-back wins for the first 
time since August of 2015.

Pittsburgh has had favorable results against its Canadian counterparts since Toronto 
joined the USL in 2015, going 4-0-1 all-time and outscoring the club 14-to-5. Last season 
saw the clubs draw 2-2 in Ontario before the Hounds nabbed a 2-1 victory at Highmark Stadium.

On the year, Toronto currently sits 13th in the Eastern Conference, but have not allowed 
a goal in three-straight matches – all 0-0 draws. Offensively, Toronto has scored two goals 
in six matches to date, the lowest output in the USL, and is averaging two shots on goal 
per game.

Wednesday’s tilt will be the first of two meetings between the teams with the Hounds again 
facing Toronto on Saturday, June 10 at the Ontario Soccer Centre.
