Wilmington Hammerheads Press Release

Wilmington, NC - Wilmington Hammerheads FC ended Saturday night's match versus the Rochester Rhinos with their second draw of the season. Neither the Hammerheads nor the Rhinos could find the back of the net at Legion Stadium to secure the single goal that would render victorious.


The Hammerheads started the first half with an improved pace from the previous weekend coming off of their defeat against the Charlotte Eagles that ended their undefeated start to the season. Midfielder Daniel Lovitz had is first attempt of the night in the 7th minute off a cross from forward Cody Arnoux that deflected off Rochester causing commotion in the box to regain possession of the ball.


As the game continued both teams fought to gain majority control, in return each team received three yellow cards in the second half alone. As the final whistle was gaining closer by minutes, Hammerheads midfielder Steven Miller had a shot on Rochester goalkeeper John McCarthy that ended in a save. Not long after, the shot was followed by a header from forward Jordan Hamilton off a corner kick saved by McCarthy on the jump.


Hamilton is the fourth player to be loaned to the Hammerheads from their Major League Soccer affiliate Toronto FC. Hamilton produced another shot in stoppage time to conclude his debut match with the squad.


Wilmington Hammerheads FC are scheduled to travel to Blackbaud Stadium on Saturday, May 17 to take on the Charleston Battery for their next match.
