Soccer stunner in Pittsburgh

May 20, 2016

Must have been quite a plan worked up in this huddle. CSL champions Lansdowne Bhoys pulled off a major upset Wednesday night when they beat the professional side Pittsburgh Riverhounds in Pittsburgh. The visitors beat their USL hosts 2-0 at Highmark Stadium in the second round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Craig Purcell and Daryl Kavanagh scored for the Yonkers-based Bhoys who had qualified for the second round after claiming another big scalp on the road, the Long Island Rough Riders of the PDL, who they beat 2-1 in extra time in South Huntington a week earlier.
