Riverhounds settle for draw against Harrisburg
TribLIVE Sports Videos
Wins have escaped the Riverhounds in a variety of ways this season. This time, it happened by way of an offside flag.
Jose Angulo's goal in stoppage time was disallowed for offside, and the Riverhounds had to settle for a 0-0 draw against Harrisburg at the Skyline Sports Complex on Saturday.
The Riverhounds (1-7-5) finish their season series against Harrisburg (3-6-3) with a 0-1-2 record.
Though the City Islanders had the edge in possession, it was the Riverhounds who had the best chances to score Saturday.
Collins John had the best chance of the first half, but his half-volley attempt on a ball played through by Kevin Kerr struck the crossbar and bounced away.
Harrisburg goalkeeper Nick Noble kept Angulo off the scoresheet earlier in the second half by making a sprawling save when Angulo headed a cross from Brian Fekete toward the corner of the net.
The Riverhounds finally put a ball behind Noble when Mike Green blasted it across the front of the goal for Angulo to tap it in, but the celebration was short-lived when Angulo was ruled to have been narrowly offside.
Riverhounds goalkeeper Hunter Gilstrap recorded his first shutout of the season.
