Attendance was announced as 2073 on this warm sunny evening (in the first half). Lynx only had four subs including a backup goalie after last night's road win in Syracuse.

The groans were noticeable on the own goal seeing the Lynx had only scored three goals at home all season!!

Though they tried everything to score during the second half, they couldn't get the equalizer with the Riverhounds pushed back guarding the edge of the box.

Ali Ngon was the most dangerous player on the field. He was triple teamed on some plays by his former teammates on Pittsburgh. He runs like a tank and is getting stronger every game.
