Riverhounds weather Battery barrage

| Sunday, April 28, 2002

Goalkeeper Randy Dedini made seven saves, as the Riverhounds played to a 0-0 draw with Eastern Conference rival Charleston Battery in Charleston, S.C., on Saturday night.

The Battery failed to convert on numerous scoring opportunities, including 19 corner kicks and a header by forward Paul Conway that hit the crossbar late in the first overtime. Riverhounds' forward Phil Karn shot wide from 18 yards away late in regulation, and defender Tim Sahaydak hit the post after collecting a cross from forward David Flavius.

Charleston played without Eric Wynalda, the all-time leading scorer for the U.S. National Team. Wynalda, signed in the off-season, tore his anterior cruciate ligament in an exhibition game two weeks ago.

With the draw, the Riverhounds fell into a first-place tie in the Northeast Division with the Toronto Lynx, a 2-1 winner over Hampton Roads on Saturday.

The Riverhounds return to its home pitch May 8 at Bethel Park Stadium against Charleston for an 11 a.m. start.
