The Pittsburgh Riverhounds have now won three-straight matches in a row.

Even more impressive was that all three of those wins were shut outs. However, they were only shut outs for Trey Mitchell. Keasel Broome has not started since.

The Riverhounds were able to top the Fury at TD Place Stadium on Saturday with a 1-0 victory. The lone tally for the Riverhounds was scored by none other than forward Corey Hertzog. Hertzog’s goal was assisted by Ritchie Duffie in the 52′ minute.

The Riverhounds also had one tally in the yellow card count, with Taylor Washington receiving the first yellow card of the match in the 39′ minute. Two players from the Ottawa Fury received the other two cards. Lance Rozeboom received the first in the 88′ minute, followed by Sergio Manesio in the 90′ minute.

The Riverhounds made a controversial signing on Monday, bringing Romeo Parkes back into their squad. Parkes got playing time in Ottawa, coming on in the 62′ minute for Duffie. Parkes totaled 28 minutes of game-time action, where he recorded one shot, 16 touches and seven passes.

The Riverhounds currently sit in the third slot in the USL’s Eastern Conference, but could change with later matches being played.

The Riverhounds will travel to face Chicago FC United on Wednesday for their first Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup match. On Saturday, the Riverhounds will host Louisville City FC at Highmark Stadium. Tickets are still available for the match, which kicks off at 7 p.m.
