A pair of second-half goals was not enough for Loudoun United FC to overcome a halftime deficit in a 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC in a USL Championship match June 2 at Segra Field in Leesburg.
Trailing 2-0 at halftime, Jovanny Bolivar scored for the second consecutive match in the 50th minute to pull the hosts within one. Sammy Sergi's shot was blocked by a defender in the box before Bolivar pounced on the loose ball and quickly deposited it into the back of the net.
After Russell Cicerone converted a penalty kick in the 58th minute to push Pittsburgh's advantage back to two, Loudoun United struck again in the 70th minute to pull within 3-2.
Bolivar laid off a pass for Logan Panchot just outside the box and Panchot ripped a low shot into the right side of the net. Loudoun sliced a two-goal deficit in half for the second time in the match but were unable to net the equalizer.
Pittsburgh improved to 6-0-1 in the all-time series against Loudoun United. The Riverhounds (2-2-1, 7 points) earned their second straight win to move into fourth place in the Atlantic Division.
