Riverhounds fall at Wilmington to remain winless
TribLIVE Sports Videos
The start of Riverhounds interim coach Niko Katic's tenure couldn't have been worse.
Wilmington scored twice in the first five minutes of the game on the way to a 5-1 win over the visiting Riverhounds on Friday at Legion Stadium.
Jordan Hamilton put Wilmington (4-1-2) ahead on the rebound of a Samuel Ochoa shot just 23 seconds into the game. Four minutes later, Steven Miller touched home a cross from Hamilton that skimmed off the gloves of Riverhounds goalkeeper Hunter Gilstrap.
Ochoa added to the lead before halftime by tapping in a cross from Hamilton, who made a run down the left sideline starting from the midfield before cutting into the box and sending in the pass.
The Riverhounds (0-5-3), who fired coach Justin Evans earlier this week, produced a more spirited effort in the second half, and their effort paid off in the 62nd minute when Collins John ended the team's three-match scoreless streak.
Jose Angulo took a shot through traffic from the top of the box that hit John and fell at his feet. The veteran striker turned and finished softly from close range for his third goal of the season.
Cody Arnoux and Will Heaney both scored for Wilmington in stoppage time, when the Riverhounds were pushed forward in search of a second goal.
