2018 Season Preview

the new era UNLEASHED


Entering his 18th season as a head coach, Bob Lilley takes the reigns of Riverhounds SC in 2018. Lilley and seven
players join Pittsburgh and its six returners for this season after being a part of the USL-side Rochester Rhinos in
2017.
It is a veteran roster overall, and 18 players have appeared in at least 10 combined USL and MLS games. Kevin
Kerr, Dennis Chin and Ben Zemanski have totaled more than 100 games played at the USL and MLS levels, and
Hugh Roberts nearly joins them as he sits at 99 career appearances.
Only three players have not yet had a season on a USL team. Noah Franke and Thomas Vancaeyezeele are the
club’s rookies, while Bakie Goodman spent last season in the National Premier Soccer League.
Three players, including Joe Greenspan, Joe Holland and Zemanski, appeared in at least one MLS game last year.
Neco Brett and Raymond Lee also have at least one game played at the MLS level.

positional outlook
Riverhounds SC features a young trio of goalkeepers for the 2018 campaign. Dan Lynd carries the most
experience in net, as he holds 11 career USL appearances from 2016-17. Keepers Mike Kirk and Kyle GK
Morton have not yet appeared in an USL game, although they each were rostered on USL teams last year
with the Rio Grande Valley FC Toros and Rochester Rhinos, respectively.
Returners: None Newcomers: Mike Kirk, Dan Lynd, Kyle Morton Departures: Brenden Alfery, Keasel Broome, Trey Mitchell, Matt Perrella

Center backs Joe Greenspan and Tobi Adewole each return for their second straight seasons with
Riverhounds SC. Joining this duo on the interior of the defense are Hugh Roberts and Todd Pratzner. D
Roberts holds four seasons of USL experience and an All-League First Team honor whereas Pratzner is
coming off a 13-appearance rookie campaign with Rochester. Jordan Dover, Noah Franke, Andrew Lubahn and
Ray Lee make up the club’s outside backs. Dover and Lee both arrive in Pittsburgh after spending the 2017 season
with the Rhinos, while Lubahn spent 2017 with the San Francisco Deltas and Franke is a rookie out of Creighton.
Returners: Tobi Adewole, Joe Greenspan
Newcomers: Jordan Dover, Noah Franke, Ray Lee, Andrew Lubahn, Todd Pratzner, Hugh Roberts
Departures: Gale Agbossoumonde, Rich Balchan, Shane Campbell, Ritchie Duffie, Jamal Jack, Jack Thompson, Nick Thompson Taylor Washington

during the 2017 season at the USL level. Playing more distributive and holding roles in the midfield,
Kenardo Forbes, Ben Zemanski, Mouhamed Dabo, Bakie Goodman and Thomas Vancaeyezeele all join Pittsburgh
for the first time. Forbes and Dabo each have multiple campaigns under their belt in the league whereas Zemanski
carries eight years of MLS experience. Goodman and Vancaeyezeele are poised for their first seasons in the USL.

scoring seven goals and 17 points with Portland Timbers 2, and Chin has accounted for 25 goals during his

Positioned right on the Monongahela River with the skyline of Pittsburgh across the river, Highmark Stadium has

more than 4,000 in attendance, former Hound José Angulo, 5. Danny Earls (PIT) 5
assisted by Matthew Dallman, would score the first-ever goal
at Highmark Stadium in the 70th minute to give Pittsburgh
the lead in the second half. The score would not hold though as the City Islanders responded with tallies in the
78th and 90th minute for the 2-1 victory.
In the four seasons played at Highmark Stadium, the Hounds have twice held a winning record during the USL
regular season - 2013 (6-3-5) and 2015 (6-2-6). The club is 25-28-20 all-time in USL play on the Mon and has never
hosted a playoff match at the venue.
Outside of league play, the Hounds have hosted nine matches at Highmark Stadium between the Lamar Hunt U.S.
Open Cup and international friendlies.
At the time of its construction, the venue’s FIFA 2-star certified artificial turf was one of only six fields to earn that
designation in the United States.
This past offseason saw Highmark Stadium expand to 5,000 seats in accordance with USSF Division II standards.
The expansion included new rows of seatings along the riverside, allowing fans to take in a brand new and unique
experience of watching soccer on the Mon.
On Hounds gamedays, the club is cheered on faithfully by its supporter’s group, the Steel Army, who are located in
the Paul Child Stand that can be found on the East End of the stadium.

2017 Review

A Year of Peaks and Valleys


Needing to overcome a slew of injuries throughout the season, it was a year that could have been for Riverhounds SC. Amassing an
8-12-12 record, the team missed the playoffs after staying in the hunt for most
of the campaign. Pittsburgh finished the regular season 13th with 36 points in
the USL Eastern Conference.
Over the course of the 2017 campaign, 32 different players recorded at least
one appearance, which is the second-highest total in team history. A number
of season-ending injuries factored into the large roster turnover. Goalkeepers
Trey Mitchell and Keasel Broome, as well as starters Rich Balchan, Ben Swanson
and Marshall Hollingsworth sustained season-ending injuries. Key contributors,
such as forward Kay Banjo and midfielder Victor Souto, also missed weeks of
the season.
Despite the carousel of players in and out of the lineup, Pittsburgh eyed a
playoff spot in the second half of the campaign. The team caught fire in August,
as a Keystone Derby Cup-clinching performance fueled it to an undefeated
month (3-0-1). Winning the rivalry trophy for the second time in its three years of
existence, Pittsburgh capped off the series against the Harrisburg City Islanders
(now known as Penn FC) with a 3-0 road win, which marked three shutouts in
three games of its in-state rival. Joe Greenspan
provided a huge boost
A late-season skid proved to be the deciding factor that kept Pittsburgh from as a loanee from
postseason action for the second straight year. Facing six eventual playoff teams Minnesota last season,
during the final seven games of the schedule, Riverhounds SC could only muster anchoring the backline
three points. to four clean sheets.
About a month after the season ended, it was announced head coach Dave
Brandt, who logged a 13-25-16 overall record during his time with Pittsburgh,
would not return in 2018. Instead, former Rochester Rhinos head coach Bob Lilley would be at the helm for the upcoming campaign.
The 2017 season was Pittsburgh’s fifth at Highmark Stadium and seventh in the USL (formerly known as USL Pro).

Keystone Derby Cup

The Battle for PA


Created in 2015, the Keystone Derby Cup, presented by K&L Gates and the Pennsylvania Lottery, is awarded to
the season series winner between Riverhounds SC and Penn FC, formerly known
as the Harrisburg City Islanders. In the three seasons of its existence, Pittsburgh
holds a 2-to-1 advantage over its Keystone State counterparts.
The Hounds were victorious in the inaugural season of the Keystone Derby Cup,
and a miraculous comeback helped pave the way. In the second of four games
during the 2015 series, Pittsburgh found itself trailing 5-3 in the 90th minute.
Despite the deficit, the Hounds accomplished the unthinkable, winning the match
6-5 in front of the Highmark Stadium crowd.
In the 2016 chapter of the Derby Cup, the second of three matches proved to be
the deciding factor. Having tied the first and third tilts, Penn FC snuck by
Pittsburgh by a score of 2-1 in game two and went on to win its first-ever
Derby Cup.
Riverhounds SC bounced back and dominated Penn FC in 2017. Pittsburgh shut out its rival in all three matches
en route to winning its second Derby Cup in club history. This was the first time the Hounds shut out Penn FC
multiple times in a single season since joining the USL in 2011 (then known as USL Pro).

34 # UNLEASH
A new era officially arrived for Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC over the offseason. The club unveiled a new logo in advance of
the 2018 campaign, swapping out the long-time “Hounds head” logo – the trademark of the club since 1999 – for a
traditional badge look to coincide with an offseason of growth and change.
The new badge is rooted in the sporting culture of Pittsburgh. First and foremost, it is adorned primarily in Black and Gold
to further solidify the club’s standing alongside the three major professional teams in the city. Traditional colors of the
Steel City itself (most notably in the city’s official crest), Black and Gold
signifies a considerable shift for the club’s identity from its original “brick
and mud” scheme in its inaugural season to the blue used through the
opening of Highmark Stadium.
Paying homage to the 446 bridges that grace the landscape of the city, a
literal bridge links the words Pittsburgh and Riverhounds SC in the outer
band of the badge. The architectural elements are a direct inspiration of
Fort Pitt Bridge, which has provided a formidable presence in the West
Side backdrop of Highmark Stadium since the club began play at that
location in 2013. Furthermore, a checkered pattern anchors both sides of
the city name, drawing from the city’s crest as well.
A uniquely shaped shield centered within the badge provides striking
character, inspired directly from capstone elements within the entryway
of the Allegheny County Courthouse located downtown. Split diagonally
in Black and Gold, the crest holds the defining qualities of the club and
is bookended by “1999,” the inaugural year of play for the Hounds. Within
the shield is a soccer ball, as well as a “Hounds” paw to forever link the
club with the Riverhounds name.
The shield is buoyed in the element of water, as the three levels of waves
represent the three rivers of Pittsburgh – the Allegheny, Monongahela, Owner Tuffy Shallenberger at the reveal event on
and Ohio. Feb. 16, 2018, at Highmark stadium
Finally, the typography is custom, in direct inspiration of a wealth of
unique examples found throughout the city defined primarily by a flare serif quality.
The new brand identity was developed by Portland, Oregon-based graphic designer, Brian Gundell. Gundell specializes in
graphic design for athletics organizations, having worked with major brands such as Adidas, Nike, Under Armour and
numerous professional teams, such as the Miami Dolphins, Miami Marlins, San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres, LA
Galaxy and D.C. United.
Riverhounds SC began play in 1999 as a member of the USL-A League. The club has kept the Riverhounds name almost
primarily throughout its existence, adding “FC” for a short spell during 2005-06. The addition of SC (short for ‘Soccer
Club’) to the club name provides little doubt to what Riverhounds SC represents as a brand moving forward and its place
in the soccer world both nationally and globally.
