Hammerheads blast Riverhounds 5-1

Wilmington, NC - Wilmington Hammerheads FC found their second victory against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds on Friday night at Legion Stadium. Forwards Jordan Hamilton and Sammy Ochoa were a dynamic duo on the field, playing a key role in the club's 5-1 victory.

 

The Hammerheads were not at a loss for goals on their home turf as seen previously in the season. Hamilton gave the crowd something to cheer about in the first 30 seconds of the match after laying the ball into the back of the net off an assist from Ochoa. Minutes later, Hamilton found Steven Miller for the second goal of the night.

 

Hamilton returned the favor to Ochoa in 35th minute assisting with a short cross in the penalty area.

 

Goalkeeper Matt Glaeser made his first regular season appearance on the goal line for the Hammerheads Friday night following the dismissal of Quillan Roberts after obtaining a red card in last weekend's match versus the Charleston Battery. Despite a quad injury he sustained during the second round matchup versus Chattanooga FC in U.S. Open Cup, Glaeser managed to keep the Riverhounds at bay majority of the match. Riverhounds forward Collins John scored the lone goal of the night for his team in the 62nd minute.

 

Miller tallied an assist as he brought the ball down into Riverhounds territory, placing the ball at forward Cody Arnoux's feet on the cross for a goal in the final minute of the match. As stoppage time began to dissipate after the goal, Hammerheads midfielder Will Heaney came in on a quick substitution for Miller. As he took position on the field, teammate Mickael Oliveira played ball to his feet and with his first touch of the night, Heaney hit a shot into the back of the net, his first of the regular season.

 

The Hammerheads travel to Raleigh, NC on Saturday, May 24 as they take on the U.S. Under-20 Men's National Team at North Carolina State University at 6:30 p.m. ET in an exhibition match. Admission is free and open to the public.
