Game #4: Pittsburgh Riverhounds (USL) 1, Tampa Bay Rowdies (NASL) 0
After 90 minutes of high pressing and numerous attempts, it seemed like the Pittsburgh Riverhounds just couldn’t get one over on their NASL competition the Tampa Bay Rowdies. The ‘Hounds had the lion’s share of the possession, much of which was in the Rowdies’ half, but they had nothing to show for it.  A low save by former MLS keeper Matt Pickens from Kevin Kerr’s vicious half-volley kept the Rowdies in the game in the 79th minute. Then, just as the fourth official was announcing stoppage time, Rob Vincent picked the ball up, strode up field, and unleashed a 25-yard bullet into the bottom-left corner, giving Pickens no chance and the Riverhounds a 1-0 victory.  Pittsburgh advances to the Fourth Round where it’ll host MLS side D.C. United.
