Loudoun United FC players rejoice during a 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC in a USL Championship game June 30 at Segra Field in Leesburg.

Jovanny Bolivar netted his fourth goal of the season in the 75th minute of play to lift Loudoun United FC to a 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC on Wednesday night at Segra Field in Leesburg.

The start of the USL Championship game — played in front of 984 spectators — was delayed nearly two hours due to weather.

Loudoun United (2-7, 6 points) snapped a five-game losing skid with the one-goal victory. The Red-and-White earned their first home win of 2021 and first-ever victory over the Riverhounds.

Ted Ku-DiPietro scored his first goal of the season in the 42nd minute to give Loudoun a 1-0 halftime lead. Pittsburgh (5-4-2, 17 points) pulled even early in the second half on a goal by Louis Perez.

Bolivar scored the go-ahead goal in the 75th minute and Loudoun goalkeeper Jermaine Fordah made the lead stand for a 2-1 victory. Jeremy Garay and Abdellatif Aboukoura assisted on Loudoun’s goals.

Ku-DiPietro was selected as the USLChampionship.com Man of the Match. Along with his first-half goal, Ku-DiPietro completed 53 of 62 passes and won 12 of 17 duels in the midfield.

Loudoun United will host Hartford Athletic (4-2-1, 13 points) at 5 p.m. July 4. Ticket information at loudoununitedfc.com.
