WE’LL START WITH PITTSBURG PLAYERS, AND.>>AS I WAS JUST MENTIONING TO YOU, ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLAYERS, TWO ASSISTS, SEVEN GOALS, HE’S A FORWARD, HE’S A LEADER, HE HAS VISION, HE HAS IT ALL. HE’S A PLAYER I’VE BEEN WATCHING. HE’S EXCEPTIONAL TO WATCH.>>Reporter: LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT SETH RUDOLPH, YOUR TOYOTA PLAYER TO WATCH. HE HAD A BRACE OUT LAST TIME.>>THIS POACHER, HE’S VERY SKILLFUL AND SO STRONG IN THE BOX. SAINT LOUIS HAS HIM. WE HOPE HE’LL MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND SCORE SOME GOALS.>>HE’S DEFINITELY THE CATALYST.>>Reporter: PITTSBURG AND SAME LINEUP THEY HAD THE LAST TIME OUT.>>TRADITIONAL 4-4-2. VERY STEADY IN THE MID FIELD. THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE A TOUGH TIME PENETRATING. SO I WANT TO SEE HOW THIS LINES UP, GOES AGAINST SAINT LOUIS’S 4-4-2.>>KERR HAS TO MESH. FOR SAINT LOUIS ANOTHER 4-4-2.>>IT’S GOING TO BE A BATTLE OF THE MID FIELD. SO, AGAIN, I MEAN IT’S GOING TO BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHO WINS THE GAME WHICH IS ULTIMATELY THE MOST IMPORTANT AND WHO ATTACK AND WHO SCORES TONIGHT.>>Reporter: .>>SAINT LOUIS HAS SCORED MORE, PITTSBURG HAS GIVEN UP LESS. LET’S SEE HOW IT SHAPES UP WHEN WE COME BACK FROM SAINT LOUIS. 0.>>WELCOME BACK TO FENTON, EVERYBODY. SAINT LOUIS AND PITTSBURG RIVERHOUNDS, BOTH OF THESE TEAMS. LOOKING UP AT THE PLAYOFF PICTURE. ALBERT, BOTH OF THESE TEAMS HAVE THE ABILITY TO SCORE GOALS BUT THEY ALSO GIVE UP GOALS. THAT MAKES FOR AN INTERESTING ONE. TAKE A LOOK AT THE TWO COACHES.>>MY PAST EXPERIENCE WITH PREKI, ALL STAR PLAYER, ALL STAR COACH. IT’S GOING TO BE INTERESTING HOW HIS LINEUP PERFORMS TONIGHT. BOTH THESE TEAMS ARE ATTACK MINDED BUT THEY HAVE MISTAKES ON OCCASIONS, SO HOPEFULLY THEY CORRECT THESE MISTAKES BUT IT’S GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING GAME AND THEY’RE GOING TO BE PURSUING BATTLE OF THE MID FIELD IN THE FIRST FEW MINUTES TO SEE WHO DICTATES THE FIRST GOAL.>>ALL RIGHT. SO WE ARE GOING TO GET THIS THING UNDERWAY. WE NEED TO TELL YOU THAT IT IS NOW TIME FOR THE MERCY SPORTS MEDICINE INJURY UPDATE. WEST NOT AVAILABLE. SAINT LOUIS IS IN THE WHITE. WE’RE JUST GETTING THINGS UNDERWAY.>>IT’S GOING TO TAKE A MINUTE FOR BOTH THESE TEAMS TO GET ALLEGHENY COUNTY LI ACCLIMATED.>>ALREADY INSIDE THE BOX THAT’S BROKEN UP MOMENTARILY AND REVERSE THE FIELD. NICE UP ON THE BALL. DON’T SEE THAT VERY OFTEN WHERE A GUY JUST STEPS ON IT TO STOP IT.>>THAT’S UNCOMMON. IT SHOWS CONFIDENCE, THOUGH. HOPEFULLY THAT CORRELATES INTO THE REST OF THE GAME HERE.>>ALL RIGHT SLIDING IT FORWARD, WASHINGTON INSIDE THE BOX. CENTER BUT NOBODY HOME. SAINT LOUIS NOW ON IT BUT PITTSBURG DOING A GOOD JOB TO GET RIGHT BACK ON. BIG RIP FROM DISTANCE. CORNER COMING UP AND GREEN WAS NOT HAPPY WITH HIS DEFENSE.>>AS EXCEPTIONAL START TO THE GAME HEREBY PITTSBURG. THESE ARE THE TYPE OF SHOTS YOU WANT YOUR MID FIELDERS TAKING. WHOEVER HAS THE CHANCE AND ABILITY SHOULD BE TAKING CHANCES RIGHT OFF THE BAT AND THEY’RE PUTTING GRIN EYES THEM TO WORK.>>PITTSBURG KEPT IT ON THE GROUND. AN UNFORCED ERROR WILL RESULT. EVERYBODY IS STAYING WHERE THEY ARE. .>>NOW WE’LL HAVE A THROW. BRUCE HE’S VERY DANGEROUS. HE WILL TRY TO SCORE UP FOR THE FIRST FEW MINUTES.>>ROMEO PARKES WILL TAKE HIS RIPS FROM THAT OUTSIDE POSITION. MITCHELL PUTS IT INTO THE STANDS SO IT WILL BE A THROW FOR SAINT LOUIS. RYAN HOW SENDS IT DOWN TOWNE SENDS IT DOWN TOWN PITTSBURG WILL HAVE THE THROW.>>THEY’RE ALSO LOOKING TO HOLD AND CREATE. TRADITIONALLY HE’S A VERY CREATIVE PLAYER, ALSO LOOKING TO LOOK FOR THE 1-2, DRIBBLE AND TAKE THAT SHOT. SO HE WANTS TO IMPLEMENT THAT RIGHT OFF THE BACK.>>PLAY ON SAYS. MITCHELL WITH THE SLIDING SAVE. LOOKS MORE LIKE A PITTSBURG PIRATE THAN A PITTSBURG RIVER HOUND ON THAT ONE. SO BOTH TEAMS HAVE TAKEN ONE TRIP DOWN THE PITCH AND HERE’S THE SECOND ONE IS RUDOLPH OUR PLAYER TO WATCH IS ON THE ATTACK, THROWING FOR LEDBETTER AND HE THROWS INTO THE BOX. INTERCEPTED AND HE GETS IT BACK. LEDBETTER CENTERS, CLEARED OUT BY PITTSBURG. RIGHT BACK INTO THE BOX BEFORE PITTSBURG FINALLY GAINS POSSESSION.>>A LOT OF EVEN EARRING IN THE.>>VAR GENTLEMAN FIRST ONE OF THE EVENING FOR SAINT LOUIS. .>>IN THE PAST THEY’VE ALWAYS HAD FREE KICKS SO THIS COULD BE DANGEROUS FOR SAINT LOUIS.>>HEADED AWAY BY PITTSBURG. NO LOOK BACK, HER COMES PITTSBURG ON THE COUNTER, PARKES FOR — HE PULLS UP THE BREAKS. HE USUALLY TAKES HIS TIME TO GET INVOLVED. HE EASES INTO THE GAME BUT HOPEFULLY HE MAKES AN IMPACT RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING.>>THIS IS ANOTHER CORNER COMING UP, SECOND ONE OF THE MATCH FOR PITTSBURG. HERTZOG OVER THERE. SEE IF HE DECIDES TO STAY. COREY WILL WALK AWAY.>>IT’S A BETTER TARGET.>>THE RIGHT FOOT OF KERR IS WHERE THEY NORMALLY GO ON THESE ACTIVITIES. RIGHT FOOT, HIGH IN THE AIR. GOT A HEAD ON IT. JUST COULDN’T CONVERT IT.>>THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THEY WOULD BE LOOKING FOR. THESE SET PIECES ARE CRUCIAL FOR BOTH TEAMS.>>THAT WAS DANGEROUS AS THAT BALL WAS SENT BACKWARDS AND GRINWIS HAD TO CLEAR IT.>>IT HAPPENED SO FAST. IT LOOKED LIKE A BACK PASS TO THE GOALIE AND HE HAD TO CLEAR IT OFF THE LINE.>>I’M NOT SURE WHAT HAPPENED WITH THAT. YOU CAN DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS.>>SAINT LOUIS ALREADY ON THE BALL, ACCEPTING IT FORWARD. FLAG IS DOWN. AND THEN CLEARE OUT BY PITTSBURG.>>I WAS GOING TO SAY WHAT A START THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN. THAT TYPE OF GOAL IN THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES.>>IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE MORE BIZARRE GOALS YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN.>>IT IS WELL DOWN THE PITS. PARKES THOSE IT OUT WIDE. BACK TO PARKES. FLIPS IT OVER. DISTANCE, OFF THE MARK.>>HERTZOG STARTED THE PLAY. GREAT TOUCH ACROSS THE FIELD BY PARKES AND IT’S THE TYPE OF PLAY HE’S BORN TO DO. HE HAS A GREAT LETHAL SHOT. I’VE SEEN IT IN THE PAST.>>HE’S NOT AFRAID TO GO RIGHT AT IT AND THAT’S WHAT PITTSBURG NEEDS TO DO. THEY REALLY HAVE TO GO. THEY HAVE 26 GOALS, GIVING UP 23.>>OH, YEAH, THEY HAVE A LOT OF STRENGTH AND THEY’RE ATTACKING FOR THEIR TEAM HERE. ALL THREE ATTACKERS, FOUR ATTACKERS THEY HAVE, THEY ALL SCORE GOALS. THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED.>>SAINT LOUIS HAS GIVEN UP 32 GOALS ON THE SEASON SO IF YOU’RE PITTSBURG YOU WANT TO CHALLENGE THEM. SAINT LOUIS WILL WORK THAT BACK LINE BEFORE THEY MOVE FORWARD. HE GOES BACKWARDS, THEY GO ALL THE WAY BACK TO THEIR KEEPER. IF YOU’RE GREEN WISE YOU DON’T HAVE A GRINWIS YOU DON’T HAVE A LOT TO SMILE ABOUT.>>IT’S BEEN A CHOPPY START FOR SAINT LOUIS. THEY NEED TO MAKE SURE THE BALLS THAT GO THROUGH THE MID FIELD ARE SMOOTH. THEY DON’T WANT ANY MISTAKES. PREKI WANTS THE TEAM TO BE FLAWLESS. PITTSBURG PUTS A LOT OF PRESSURE ON SO IT’S SUFFOCATING.>>PARKES AND SAW TOE COULDN’T CONNECT. OUTO COULDN’T CONNECT. LEDBETTER. INSIDE NICE MOVE CAN HE GET IT OFF THE SHOT. ENTER SETTED. AND THEN A LATE FLAG GOES UP ON THAT OFF SIDE. WHEN YOU WERE PLAYING DID YOU LIKE WHEN THE REFEREE WAS QUICK ON THE FLAG OR SLOW ON THE FLAG.>>I PREFER QUICK. IF IT’S IN MY FAVOR I’M GOING TO OBVIOUSLY FIGHT FOR THAT CALL, BUT IT’S, IT DEPENDS ON WHAT SIDE YOU’RE ON. I PREFER A QUICK CALL AND GET IT OVER WITH. IF IT IS, FINE. BUT I LIKE THATTY STOJKOV.>>GRINWIS SENDING EVERYBODY FORWARD SO HE CAN PUT THAT RIGHT FOOT INTO IT. PITTSBURG PICKS IT UP. HERE COMES SAINT LOUIS INTO THE BOX INTENDED FOR DAVID, KNOCKED AWAY. CORNER KICK COMING UP. THE SAVINGS CORNER KICK AND DAVID CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS THROUGHOUT THIS PATCH. IF THEY CAN GET HIM, HE NEEDS TO PULL THE TRIGGER A LITTLE BIT FASTER ON THE SHOTS. HE’S HOLDING IT A LITTLE TOO MUCH WAITING FOR MORE PEOPLE TO BE AROUND HIM. A LOSE BALL. PITTSBURG GOAL WAS WIDE OPEN. ST. LOUIS COULDN’T TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT.>>GOING BACK TO YOUR COMMENT ABOUT DAVID. I’VE SEEN HIM IN THE PAST, HE SEEMS TO BE PUSHED UP TODAY. WHICH MEANS HE IS VERY DANGEROUS. HE HAS A GREAT SHOT ON GOAL. HE HAS A LOT OF CONFIDENCE. HE HAS THOSE ATTRIBUTES AND THEY’RE GOING TO FAVOR HIS TEAM.>>RIGHT NOW PITTSBURG SEEMS TO BE VERY, VERY CHAOTIC ON THAT DEFENSIVE SIDE, ALBERT. YOU SEE THE FRUSTRATION FROM JOY MITCHELL. IF THEY DON’T GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER IT COULD BE VERY, VERY INTERESTING. ALL RIGHT. HERE IS A REPLY. .>>RIGHT NOW VERY FRANTIC START. IT’S ALMOST END TO END. IT’S BEEN VERY LITTLE PLAY IN THE MIDDLE THIRD BY EITHER ONE OF THESE TEAMS AND THAT’S A LONG DISTANCE PUNT RIGHT THERE. GREEN WISE IS QUICK TO PICK IT BACK UP.>>IT SEEMS LIKE TURNOVER AFTER TURNOVER. SO BOTH TEAMS NEED TO CLEANUP THEIR MID FIELD PLAY SO YOU HAVE MORE QUALITY PLAY ON THE FIELD.>>PITTSBURG BACK ON THE BALL, SENDING IT FORWARD. KERR, CENTERS IT TO THE BOX. PARKES WAS LOOKING TO TEE UP ON IT. HE GETS RIGHT BACK ON THE BALL. .>>PARKES DOING A LOT OF DUTY, A LOT OFF RUNNING RIGHT NOW. POSSESSION GOES IN FAVOR OF SAINT LOUIS.>>A LOT OF SCRAMBLES GOING ON IN BOTH ENDS. BOTH TEAMS ARE TRYING TO FIND THEIR FEET. IT SEEMS BOTH TEAMS WANT TO CREATE, HAVE A LOT OF ENERGY, BUT NOTHING HAS BEEN SITUATED YET, NOTHING HAS BEEN CLEAR. SO SO FAR THAT’S WHAT WE’VE SEEN, HOPEFULLY CHANGES AND IT GETS TO BE MORE OF A QUALITY PLAY.>>PAUL DEFEATED. DAVID, CAN HE FIND A FOOT TO GET THE SHOT OFF? NO, HE CANNOT. HERE COMES PARKES. HE HAS SOME OPTIONS. HERTZOG NUMBER EIGHT. SOME BIG TIME DEFENSE, LEDBETTER JUST GOT HIS BODY ON IT, OTHERWISE THIS IS A 1-0 GAME IN THE 16th MINUTE.>>PARKES LOOKING DOWN THE FIELD, SPEEDY AND GREAT TOUCH BY HERTZOG BUT HE COULD NOT GET THAT SHOT OFF PAST GRINWIS WHO CUT THE ANGLE. IT ALSO HIT HIS DEFENDER.>>IF IT’S NOT FOR LEDBETTER CHASING BACK ON THE BALL IT WAS A GOOD SAVE BY GRINWIS.>>ALL RIGHT. HERTZOG RIGHT FOOT. HEADED AWAY EASILY BY SAINT LOUIS. BUT THEY’RE GIVING UP THE POSSESSION, WASHINGTON, SEW TOY. IT SEEMS LIKE BOTH OF THESE TEAMS ARE REALLY NOT ASSERTING THEMSELVES. THEY’RE MORE REACTIONARY SO FAR. IT’S MORE OF THE TURNOVER THAT IS THE MAJOR STORY LINE IN THIS GAME AND NOT SO MUCH THAT EITHER TEAM SETTLING THE BALL DOWN AND BUILDING FROM BEHIND.>>CORRECT. THERE’S NO CONTROL IN THE MID FIELD AND IT SEEMS LIKE IT’S A BREAK AWAY GAME SO I AGREE WITH YOU COMPLETELY. BOTH TEAMS ARE FIGHTING FOR THAT CONTROL. THEY NEED TO HAVE SOUND TOUCHES, AND THEN MAYBE SETTLE DOWN A BIT. THE FIRST 15, 20 MINUTES OF THE GAME IS USUALLY VERY HIGH ENERGY, VERY LOW QUALITY. IT’S JUST A LOT OFF RUNNING AND SCRAMBLING SO HOPEFULLY THEY’LL SETTLE DOWN.>>HERTZOG IS GOING TO BE ALL BY HIMSELF. HE SLOWS DOWN, TAKES THE SHOT, ANOTHER BIG SAVE BY GRINWIS BUT IF YOU’RE COREY HERTZOG WHY DO YOU TAKE SO LONG TO GET THAT SHOT OFF? ALL HE HAS TO DO IS GET IT TO HIS RIGHT FOOT RIGHT AROUND THE 18 AND HE’S ONE-ON-ONE. HE TOOK TOO LONG TO GET IT TO THAT RIGHT FOOT.>>DID YOU SEE HOW MANY TIMES HE LOOKED OVER. IT SEEMED LIKE HE WANTED TO MAKE THAT CROSS. HE’S A RIGHT FOOTED PLAYER. AS A TRACKER YOU NEED TO BE VERSATILE. HE HAD A GREAT CHANCE.>>BUT ALBERT HE WAS SO FAR AHEAD OF THAT BALL. HE LET IT DRIFT OUT TO THE LEFT.>>ALL RIGHT. IT WILL BE PARKES TAKING THIS CORNER. ANOTHER RIGHT FOOT. OUT SWINGER, HIGH IN THE AIR, ADAM PULSE IT OUT ONCE AGAIN AND YOU CAN SEE THE FRUSTRATION FROM GRINWIS AND HIS DEFEENS.>>VERY ACTIVE FIRST HALF FOR GRINWIS, FIRST 18 MINUTES HE’S HAD SEVERAL SHOTS AGAINST HIM BUT HE HAS COME UP VERY STRONG. HE’S DONE VERY WELL TO COVER ANGLES.>>DAVID ALMOST FORCING THAT UNFORCED ERROR ON TREY MITCHELL. MITCHELL PUNTS IT HIGH INTO THE AIR. THAT WILL BE A THROW COMING UP FOR PITTSBURG. WASHINGTON. WALSH TO PARKES. BACK TO WALSH. HANGS ON TO IT, JUST COULDN’T GET IT THERE. A LOT OF ACTIVITY IN THAT 18 FROM PITTSBURG TONIGHT.>>GOODY ABOUT PITTSBURG. HERTZOG HAS HAD THREE CLEAR CHANCES. HE NEEDS TO BE A LITTLE MORE AGGRESSIVE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR PITTSBURG TONIGHT. THEY’RE DEPENDING ON HIM TO GOAL SCORE. HE’S THE TYPE OF PLAYER HE WILL SCORE SEVERAL GOALS IN ONE GAME IF HE HAS THE OPPORTUNITY.>>BE SURE TO VISIT ONE OF SEVEN-LOCAL SAINT LOUIS AREA TOYOTA DEALERS. .>>THAT PLAY WAS INTENDED FOR WALSH. SO FAR YOU HAVE TO GIVE THE EDGE OF THIS MATCH TO PITTSBURG. THEY HAVE BEEN ON THE ATTACK. LOOKED A LITTLE BIT SHARPER AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. SOUTO OUT WIDE, KERR PULSE UP THE BRAKES, BACK TO SOUTO. INSIDE, WALSH WITH TWO ON HIS HIP. WHEN THINGS COULD GET A LITTLE TESTY AS VARGA HAS LET THIS GAME PLAY OUT.>>THEY’RE LOSING ON THE POSSESSION GAME WHEN IT COMES TO STATS BUT THEY ARE CREATING QUALITY CHANCES. THEY PRESSURED GRINWIS. THEY NEED TO CLOSE UP THEIR BACK TO MAKE SURE THEY GET CREATIVE BUT SO FAR THE GAME IS STILL VERY WIDE OPEN FOR BOTH TEAMS.>>SOUTO GOES TO THE GROUND AND POPS UP A LITTLE BIT SLOWER THAN HE WOULD LIKE. .>>SOUTO IS A CLASSY PLAYER. HE KNOWS HOW TO PLAY WITH BOTH FEET. HE’S A VERY FINE PLAYER, HE’S ALL B HOPEFULLY HE REMAINS INJURY FREE.>>HOPEFULLY THIS ENTIRE MATCH REMAINS INJURY FREE. OKAI SWITCHES FIELD. THROW COMING UP. SOUTO. 50/50. EVENTUALLY SAINT LOUIS GETS IT. .>>ANOTHER OVER THE TOP BALL. BALL STILL SPENDING A LOT OF TIME IN THE AIR BEFORE IT SETTLES DOWN.>>THIS IS WHERE SOUTO NEEDS TO COME IN. THEY NEED TO CONTROL EVERY SINGLE PASS SO THEY CAN ACTUALLY INCREASE THEIR POSSESSION, IF NOT BOTH THESE TEAMS ARE GOING TO STRUGGLE TO CREATE.>>PARKES DOES A GOOD JOB OF DANCING OUT OF TROUBLE BEFORE SAINT LOUIS PICKS IT BACK UP. STOJKOV SLIDES IT FORWARD TO DAVID, GETS IT BACK, THEN SENDS IT FORWARD. FOOT RACE AND WASHINGTON WILL CLEAR IT OFF. LEDBETTER WILL DO THE HONORS HERE IN THE FINAL THIRD TO DAVID. STOJKOV, A FLICK IN, HOWE RACE TO THE CORNER, HOWE AND DID . IT DANCES ON. .>>EYE IN THE AIR, SETH RUDOLPH WAS THERE BUT HE COULDN’T GET A FOOT ON IT.>>SAINT LOUIS NEEDS TO HOLD THE BALL WELL. SHOULD YOU OPEN UP THE FIELD, KEEP POSSESSION. IT’S EXCEPTIONAL. IF THEY KEEP DOING THAT THEY CAN WATER YOU OUT AS A TEAM SO LOOK HOW LARGE THE FIELD IS. THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONALLY WIDE FIELD. THEY NEED TO CAPITALIZE ON THAT AND USE IT TO THEIR ADVANTAGE.>>SAINT LOUIS PLAYING HERE IN FENTON, HOME OF WEBSTER UNIVERSITY. A GORLOCK. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT IS.>>DON’T ASK ME.>>I HAVE A FRIEND WHOSE SON PLACE KEEPER FOR THE GORLOCKS.>>HERE COMES PITTSBURG, KERR, NICE DANCE, THREE DEFENDERS, HE’S ABLE TO GET THAT BALL OUT WIDE. PITTSBURG WILL KIND OF GO IN AN ARC. OKAI TO KERR, TO THE CORNER FOR WASHINGTON, HE CENTERS, NOBODY HOME FOR PITTSBURG. RUDOLPH, PLAY VA BACK TO HIS KEEPER.>>TRACKING BACK IT’S VERY IMPORTANT FOR AN ATTACKER TO COME BACK AND BE THE DEFENDER FOR YOUR TEAM. VERY VERSATILE PLAYER, VERY TWO WAY PLAYER. HE’S A LEADER. HE KEEPS STEPPING UP TONIGHT AND HE’LL BE A HUGE DIFFERENCE FOR PITTSBURG. HOPEFULLY THEY CAPITALIZE ON HIS OPPORTUNITIES.>>LEDBETTER, PAST WASHINGTON AND IT’S CLEARED OFF THAT BACK LINE. BALL SPENDING A LOT OF TIME IN THE AIR AND WHEN IT DOES NOBODY POSSESSING IT. IT’S ALMOST LIKE HERE , HERE’S THE BALL, NO, I DON’T WANT IT, YOU TAKE IT, NO, I DON’T WANT IT, YOU TAKE IT.>>HOT POTATO. SLOPPY. I UNDERSTAND YOUR FRUSTRATION, BRUCE.>>I’M NOT FROM US FREIGHTING, I’M NOT THE ONE PLAYING.>>IT IS — I’M NOT FRUSTRATED. I’M NOT THE ONE PLAYING.>>TO SEE THIS IS A LITTLE FRUSTRATING.>>JACKSON IS WIDE. ‘YEAHAPPIAH WANTS THIS ONE BACK. TAKE A LOOK AT DANIEL JACKSON, SLOW TO GET UP. GREAT SPORTSMANSHIP BY TREY MITCHELL TO TRY TO STRETCH HIM OUT. ALL RIGHT, FOLKS, FANS STAY UP-TO-DATE ON THE LATEST INFORMATION FROM AROUND THE LEAGUE. TUNE IN WITH MIKE WAS AT 7:00 P.M., CHANNEL 85. PLEASE CHECK USL SOCCER.COM FOR DATES AND TIMES. AND WALSH COMING UP A LITTLE BIT LANE. HE HAS TO RUN IT OFF A LITTLE BIT BEFORE IT GOES BACK TO THE SAINT LOUIS KEEPER. STOJKOV FOR WALL MUCH. BALL WELL DOWN THE FIELD. 50/501 BY PITTSBURG. LEDBETTER GIVES IT UP, UNFORCED ERROR THERE. KERR, LONG DISTANCE PASS FOR PARKES. .>>WE’VE SEEN SOME CONTINUITY NOW FOR BOTH TEAMS IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES. BOTH TEAMS HAVE CONNECTED IN FOUR OR FIVE PASSES BEFORE THEY TURN IT OVER. THAT’S AN IMPROVEMENT. BUT THAT’S FINE, AS LONG AS YOU HOLD AND POSSESS THE BALL AND YOU HAVE CONTROL OVER WHAT YOU’RE DOING I THINK THAT’S AN IMPROVEMENT.>>RUDOLPH WAS LOOKING FOR DAVID, THAT BALL IS WELL OVER THE TOP AGAIN. PITTSBURG AND WALSH WAS CHASING.>>I THINK THAT’S A BIT OF MISCOMMUNICATION.>>ON BOTH SIDES AND WE HAVE A SCHEDULED HYDRATION BREAK. WE’RE TRYING TO SEE IF IT IS BEFORE OR AFTER THE THROW. IT IS AFTER THE THROW.>>ALL RIGHT. SO WHILE WE’RE GETTING HYDRATED WE IN VIET YOU TO GRAB A BEF — WE INVITE YOU TO GET A BEVERAGE.>>HE’S GOT THE ANGLES, MADE HIMSELF BIG IN THE RIGHT MOMENTS. THIS IS ESSENTIALLY THREE OR FOUR ATTEMPTS FOR PITTSBURG. YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT EARTHS OHHING.>>SO FAR YOUR SAINT LOUIS MAN OF THE MATCH. WE SEE EVERYBODY HAVING A DRINK. I HAVE NO FRUSTRATION I’M JUST CALLING THIS GAME, BUT IF YOU’RE DAVID BRANDT YOU HAVE SOME FRUSTRATION.>>THESE ARE COACHES, ESPECIALLY PREKI WHO HAS A GREAT RESUME. SO WHEN HE SEES GOALS THAT ARE NOT MADE FOR REASONS, OBVIOUSLY NOT BECAUSE OF THE GOALKEEPER, BUT HE’S GOING TO WANT THE TEAM STEPPING UP.>>FOR DAVE BRANDT.>>SAME THING. YOU’RE 30 MINUTES IN. YOUR NERVES ARE OUT. YOU WANT EVERYTHING TO COME INTO PLAY. HE WANTS HIS TEAM TO COME INTO THE MONTH OLD THEY BROUGHT TONIGHT.>>ALL RIGHT. WE’VE GOT THIS SUBSTITUTION BROUGHT TO YOU BY G AND W MEATS. JACKSON IS COMING OUT I GUESS BECAUSE OF THAT INJURY AND SEW LESS SKI COMES IN. VOLESKY COMES IN. YOU START ANALYZING PLAYERS, 30 MINUTES IN IS NOT IDEAL BUT FOR VOLESKY TO COME IN, HE’S AN EXCEPTIONAL PLAYER, HE’S SEASONED AND HE’S A GOAL SCORER EVERYBODY WANTS THAT ON THEIR TEAM.>>WE’LL GO BACK TO MITCHELL AND HE’LL SETTLE EVERYTHING DOWN. HE’LL ROLL IT TO HIMSELF AND SEND IT DOWN THE PITCH. TOUGH ANGLE TO KEEP IN PLAY AND IT DOES NOT. THE ADVANTAGE WILL GO TO SAINT LOUIS. .>>MY EXPERIENCE WHEN YOU HAVE SUCH AN EARLY SUBSTITUTE IT AFFECTS THE FLOW. ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU HAVE A CHANGE.>>AND THAT BALL IS USHERED OUT. NICE HEADS UP DEFENSIVE PLAY BY PITTSBURG.>>ON MY PREVIOUS COMMENT, YOU USUALLY HAVE THE MOMENTUM AT THIS POINT AND YOU HAVE A DISRUPTION IN THE LINEUP, IT USUALLY AFFECTS. BUT THIS IS WHERE DEPTH IN A TEAM COMES IN. IF YOU HAVE STAR PLAYERS REPLACING STAR PLAYERS YOU WON’T NOTICE A CHANGE. HOPEFULLY THAT’S THE WAY IT IS TONIGHT.>>MITCHELL AND IT’S KEPT IN PLAY BEFORE IT GOES OUT. PITTSBURG THROWS IT IN.>>PREKI JUST NEEDS TO CHANGE WHAT HAPPENS TOWARDS THE END OF THE MATCH. HOW DO YOU GET FRESH LEGS IN. IF YOU’RE UP, HOW DO YOU SLOW THE GAME DOWN? TAKE SOME TIME OFF THE BOARD? WE’LL SEE HOW IT ALL PLACE OUT? HOPEFULLY DANIEL JACKSON IS JUST A MINOR INJURY. THAT BALL A LITTLE TOO HEAVY FOR RUDOLPH TO HANG ON TO. WALSH STAYS ON LONG ENOUGH. PARKES LOOKS TO TAKE A RIP. KNOCKS IT INTO A WALL OF TWO. PARKES WILL GET IT BACK.>>PARKES LOVES TAKING SHOTS. IF HE HAS THE ABILITY TO TAKE FIVE OR SIX SHOTS A GAME HE’S IN HEAVEN BUT TEAMS KNOW HIM ALREADY, THEY KNOW HOW TO CLOSE HIM DOWN. BUT NOTICE HIS VERSE TILT. HE SHOOTS WITH HIS LEFT AS WELL. PITTSBURG WILL HAVE POSSESSION. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THAT JACKSON INJURY. YOU SEE HIM RUNNING TOWARDS IT. HE COMES UP LAME ON THAT PASS. HOLDING THAT LEFT HAMMY.>>HE HAS AN EXCEPTIONAL RUN. HE JUST PULLED HIS MUSCLE. IN MY EXPERIENCE IT HAPPENS IN ALL DIFFERENT SITUATIONS. IN THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME, TOWARD THE END OF THE GAME. SO IT’S VERY DIFFICULT TO PREDICT WHAT COULD HAPPEN TO HIM AFTER THAT PLAY. IT’S JUST FRUSTRATING WHEN YOU GET INJURED.>>SIDE TACKLE BY LEDBETTER SENDS WASHINGTON TO THE TURF. TAKE A LOOK AT THE TIMING ON THIS ONE. HE GOT THERE JUST BEFORE WASHINGTON DID. THROW BY WASHINGTON.>>I ALWAYS SQUIRM WHEN I SEE A CLEAT UP BUT THAT SEEMED LIKE A VERY STRONG TACKLE ON BOTH THEIR ENDS.>>RUN FORWARD, HE’S TRYING TO ASSERT HIMSELF EARLY IN HIS SHIFT. SENT FORWARD. WALSH. CAN HE TIME IT? RIGHT INTO THE GUT OF ADAM GREEN LESS GREENLESS. DAVID RAN RIGHT PAST IT. PARKES ALL OVER THIS PARK TONIGHT.>>VERY PHYSICAL PLAYER. HE’S SO SPEEDY AND SO STRONG. HE’S TALL. HE’S A VERY WELL ROUNDED PLAYER, PARKES.>>SEW COUGH, LEDBETTER, SENDS IT FORWARD LONG DISTANCE ON THE MARK FOR VOLESKY. THAT FLAG IS UP AS DAVID WAS ALMOST HAVING DINNER PLANS WITH TREY MITCHELL THAT’S HOW FAR AHEAD OF THE PLAY HE WAS. MITCHELL WILL KICK THIS ONE AWAY. WE’RE IN THE 38th MINUTE, SCORELESS. PITTSBURG HAS HAD SOME OF THE BETTER CHANCES. YOU KNOW, IT’S INTERESTING MAYBE WE CAN TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THAT JACKSON INJURY. IT LOOKS LIKE HE WAS WASN’T SURE. .>>IN THIS CASE IT WAS INTELLIGENT TO CUT IT BACK. UNFORTUNATELY HIS LEG GOT INJURED ON THAT SHOT BUT THAT’S THE WAY IT GOES.>>MY POINT BEING YOU WILL PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN, YOU’LL PLANT YOUR LEFT FOOT DOWN DIFFERENTLY FOR A PASS THAN YOU WOULD FOR A SHOT-ON GOAL AND THAT IN DID HE SIGNIFICANCE COULD HAVE BEEN THE REASON WHY HE LANDEDDECISION COULD HAVE BEEN THE REASON WHY HE LANDED. IT IS HIS LEFT FOOT HE STRAINED, SO IT COULD VERY WELL BE THAT. THAT LAST MINUTE DECISION COULD HAVE HURT HIM.>>>LET’S TAKE ONE MORE LOOK AT THAT JACKSON INJURY. JACKSON RUNNING INTO THE BOX. TAKE A LOOK AT THAT LEFT FOOD F FOOT. IT LOOKED LIKE HE WAS PASSING ALL DAY LONG, HE JUST CAME UP LAME.>>YEAH, HIS FANCY FOOTWORK.>>SO IT WILL BE KEVIN KERR, RIGHT FOOT, SO IT WILL SWING AWAY FROM HIM. A LOT OF ACTIVITY INSIDE THE 18, HIGH IN THE AIR. SOUTO TO WASHINGTON, WASHINGTON DIDN’T SEE SOUTO ON THAT LEFT SIDE. PITTSBURG DOES A GOOD JOB OF STAYING ON THE BALL. WE HAVE A WHISTLE INSIDE THE CIRCLE AS THE MAN JOHNNY ON THE SPOT PARKES, HE WANTS IT RIGHT THERE. ROMEO PARKES HAS BEEN ALL OVER THIS PITCH TONIGHT. ANOTHER CORNER COMING UP FOR PITTSBURG.>>PARKES TYPICALLY HAS THAT TYPE OF STOP PLAY. HE’S VERY STRONG PLAYER, SOMETIMES HE EXCEEDS HIMSELF. LAST PLAY, 75 MINUTES, 80 MINUTES BUT HE STARTS SLOWING DOWN SO MAYBE HE SHOULD PAYS HIMSELF A LITTLE BIT SO MAKE SURE HE LASTS THE ENTIRE GAME. HE’S AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS TEAM FOR PITTSBURG.>>DAVID PUT IT UP IN THE AIR. HE GETS OUTRUN BY DUFFIE WHO SENDS IT DOWN THE PITCH. YOU SEE THAT SHOT DIFFERENTIAL. RYAN HOWE WILL DO THE HONORS.>>AND INTERESTING, POSSESSION IS IN FAVOR AT THE MOMENT FOR SAINT LOUIS. BASED ON MY STATS HERE YOU HAVE MORE SHOTS THAT ARE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO SCORE FOR PITTSBURG.>>APPIAH DREW THE FOUL, SO APPIAH IS OVER THERE, HOWE IS OVER THERE. APPIAH LOOKING TO SHOW THE RIGHT FOOT. CHIPS IT HIGH. DAVID WAS LOOKING TO CONTROL IT. HE KEEPS IT ON THE PITCH. LONG RUN FOR STOJKOV. HE PICKS IT UP. ANOTHER ONE INTO THE BOX. WHISTLE STOPS PLAY.>>THESE ARE MOMENTS THAT SAINT LOUIS NEEDS TO CAPITALIZE. THESE FREE KICKS DON’T COME OFTEN, SO EVERY TIME THERE’S A FREE KICK IT SHOULD BE EFFICIENT IN LOOKING FOR DAVID’S HIT.>>MITCHELL WILL DO THE HONORS AS WE’RE GETTING CLOSE TO THE END OF THE FIRST HALF. YOU HAVE TO FIGURE THERE WILL BE ABOUT ONE MINUTE BECAUSE OF THAT WATER BREAK AT THE 30-MINUTE MARK. OTHER THAN THAT THIS HAS BEEN A PRETTY FRANTIC FIRST HALF WITH NOT A LOT OF STOPS. STOJKOV WITH A BIG UNFORCEDúERR. KERR LOOKING TO THROW IT IN QUICKLY. LOOKING FOR WALSH, KNOCKED AWAY. AND HOWE PUTS IT INTO THE STANDS.>>FOR THE LAST FEW MINUTES, MAKE SURE THEY HOLD THE BALL, BOTH TEAMS TO PREVENT ANY RECKLESS CHALLENGES OR YELLOW CARDS. GOING INTO THE HALF, JUST TO REGROUP, MAKE SURE THEY SETTLE DOWN, AND ANALYZE. BOTH COACHES SHOULD BE PINPOINTING MISTAKES. WHICH EVERYONE SHOULD SLOW DOWN AND CAPITALIZE ON SHOTS AND FRIDAY TO FOCUS MORE ON THESE OPPORTUNITIES.>>THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY, BIG BLAST, PITTSBURG STILL ON THE BALL UNTIL THEY GIVE IT UP. GREAT JOB BY PITTSBURG TO TRY TO KEEP IT IN THIS SAINT LOUIS END. SAINT LOUIS WILL HAVE THE THROW. SOCCER FANS NIKE IS THE OFFICIAL SPONSOR. HOWE INTO THE MIDDLE THIRD, SENT RIGHT BACK BY PITTSBURG. VERY EMOTIONAL PLAYER AND COACH. MITCHELL PUTS IT INTO THE SAINT LOUIS BENCH. STOJKOV, RUDOLPH, INTO THE MIDDLE, RUDOLPH WITH AN OPPORTUNITY TO PUT IT IN AND HE DOES. HE WAS THE PLAYER TO WATCH AND HE JUST PROVED WHY. THIS IS WHY HE’S THE PLAYER TO WATCH. HE COMES IN AND HE’S ABOUT TO FINISH THE FIRST HALF.>>HERE’S A REPLAY OF THE SAINT LOUIS FC DELIVERED BY RUDOLPH. THIS IS WHAT HE DOES, HE FINISHES WELL, EXCEPTIONAL FINISH AND WHAT A CRUCIAL MOMENT HERE FOR SAINT LOUIS RIGHT BEFORE THE FIRST HALF. THIS IS GOING TO GIVE THEM MOMENTUM AND CONFIDENCE GOING INTO THE SECOND HALF.>>OFFICIALLY THAT’S IN THE 44th MINUTE. RUDOLPH MAKES THIS A 1-GOAL GAME. WE HAVE THREE MINUTES OF ADDED TIME FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE. .>>WE SURE TO VISIT ONE OF THE HOT SPOT LOCATIONS AFTER THE MATCH. THAT’S A DEVASTATING GOAL TO GIVE UP IF YOU’RE PITTSBURGH BECAUSE YOU REALLY OUT PLAYED SAINT LOUIS THROUGHOUT THIS FIRST HALF, THEN RUDOLPH STAYS ON THE BALL AND HE BEATS TREY MITCHELL.>>THAT’S THE BEAUTY OF SOCCER, BRUCE. YOU’VE GONE BASICALLY YEARS OF CALLING GAMES AND YOU NEVER KNOW. YOU CAN OUT PERFORM BUT ALL IT TAKES IS ONE SHOT FOR IT TO BE COMPLETELY WIPED OUT AND CHANGED.>>IT IS SAID MANY TIMES THE GOALS THAT YOU DON’T SCORE GETS SCORED ON YOU AND THERE’S A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THAT, SETH RUDOLPH WHO HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING AS OF LATE, ONE OF THE REASONS HE WAS THE PLAYER TO WATCH AS HE HAD A BRACE A WEEK AGO AGAINST THE ROWD SNICHLT ES IN AIES IN A WIN.>>THIS IS A SHOT I HAD, I HAD A GOAL OPPORTUNITY AND NOW WE’RE DOWN 1-0. AND I COULD HAVE BEEN UP BY TWO GOALS. THAT’S THE WAY SOCCER GOES. WE’RE JUST GETTING WORD THAT A YELLOW CARD WAS PICKED UP. THIS COULD BE ANOTHER DANGEROUS PLAY INSIDE THE BOX. IT’S VOLESKY THAT GETS THE WHISTLE. YUP, THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE DOES. THAT’S IN THE — VOLESKY COMES INTO THE GAME AND HE PICKS UP A YELLOW CARD AT THE 48th. YES, THERE WAS A LOT OF TUGGING AND PUSHING IN THAT, BUT IT’S NEVER THE AGGRESSOR OR THE INSTIGATOR, IT’S ALWAYS THE GUY THAT RESPONDS.>>THAT WAS COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY AS WELL. .>>THAT IS JUST A FRUSTRATION FOUL MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE. BUT IT ALSO MAKES THINKS DANGEROUS IN THE SECOND HALF TO HAVE A STRIKER SITTING ON A YELLOW.>>ABSOLUTELY.>>PITTSBURGH WANING MOMENTS. THAT DOES IT FOR THE FIRST HALF. FOR A DEFENDER TOFL A YELLOW CARD MEANS HE HAS TO BE A LITTLE BIT CAREFUL IN THE SECOND HALF THAT HE DOESN’T PICK UP THAT SECOND AND GED CENTS TO THE SHOWERS.>>EVERY PLAYER NEEDS TO ANALYZED WHAT THEY’VE DONE AND HOW THEY NEED TO IMPROVE IN THE SECOND HALF. WE’LL SEE WHAT THE SECOND HALF BRINGS.>>SO THE SECOND HALF WILL BE BROUGHT TO YOU BY HOLLYWOOD CASINO. RUDOLPH IS THE MAN OF THE MINUTE. SAINT LOUIS ONE, PITTSBURG NOTHING, HALF TIME COMING UP NEXT. WELCOME BACK TO FENTON. HOLLYWOOD CASINO IS PROUD TO BE PARK TO PARK. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A LITTLE FEATURE HERE FROM SAINT LOUIS FC AND ONE OF THE GUYS WE DECIDED WE WOULD FEATURE FOR THIS JUST HAPPENS TO BE THE GUY THAT SCORED IN THE FIRST HALF, SET SETH RUDOLPH. TAKE A LOOK.>>HI, HERE WITH ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE SLFC PLAYERS, SETH RUDOLPH. SETH ARE YOU READY FOR TEN QUESTIONS.>>IT LOOKS LIKE I HAVE TO BE.>>YOU’RE STUCK IN THE ROOM SO THIS IS HAPPENING. WHAT IS IN YOUR PLAY LIST IN YOUR CAR RIGHT NOW.>>WELL, THE WIN STAR DOESN’T EXACTLY HAVE THE BEST PLAY LIST SO I HAVE TO USE THE RADIO AND THAT’S REALLY ALL I’VE GOT.>>RADIO IS FINE.>>YOU KNOW, THEY KIND OF PLAY THE SAME SEVEN SONGS. YOU HAVE TO MIX UP THE STATION, BUT THE WINSTAR DOESN’T HAVE THAT MUCH RADIO ABILITY.>>THAT’S OKAY. TELL OUR VIEWERS WHAT STATIONS ARE YOU TUNED INTO.>>104.9 IS WHERE I’M AT. 96.3. 98.1. 100.3, AND 102.5.>>SO ESSENTIALLY THE ENTIRE RADIO STATION?>>WHATEVER –>>COUNTRY?>>YEAH, NOT BIG ON COUNTRY.>>BIGGEST PET PEEF PEEVE.>>WHEN PEOPLE DRIVE SLOW IN THE LEFT LANE.>>HOW DID YOU AND YOUR WIFE MEET.>>I TORE MY ACL IN SWEDEN, SO GOING TO GET SOME CANDY, YOU HAVE A BAD TRAINING SESSION AND YOU WANT SOME CANDY.>>SUGAR HIGH.>>YEAH, A LITTLE. I MAY HAVE A SWEET TOOTH BUT IT’S ALL RIGHT. I GO IN, GET SOME CANDY, TALK TO HER FOR A FEW MINUTES, AND I CAN TELL THERE’S A LITTLE VIBE GOING. AND I GO BACK TO TALK TO HER. FORTUNATELY SHE LIKED ME. SO I ASKED HER ON A DATE AND WE WENT ON A DATE AND HAVE PRETTY MUCH BEEN TOGETHER EVER SINCE.>>THAT IS A GREAT STORY, IN SWEDEN.>>SHE’S SWEDISH.>>I GOT YOU, OKAY. VERY COOL.

MORE TO COME ON THE HOLLYWOOD CASINO HALF TIME SHOW PITTSBURGH. MORE TO COME ON THE HOLLYWOOD CASINO HALF TIME SHOW 0.>>WHAT EX SITESCITES US ABOUT JOINING THE U.S. L, IT HAS REALLY BEEN A SUCCESSFUL LEAGUE. THEY’VE DONE A PHENOMENAL JOB. WE’VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR OVER TWO YEARS NOW AND WE REALLY CHOSE THE U.S. L BECAUSE WE THINK IT’S THE BEST LEAGUE AND ONE OF THE BEST SPORTS IN THE WORLD AND WE THINK BIRMINGHAM IS PRIME TO BECOME A GREAT PROFESSIONAL SOCCER TOWN.>>IT’S GOING TO BE A FUN, FAST, EXCITING ATMOSPHERE. IT IS FUN TO WATCH, THE TOUGH NESS THAT GOES INTO IT.>>WE GET TO MEET THE FOLKS WE GET TO WORK WITH ON A WEEKLY AND ONGOING BASIS AND REALLY GET OUR DUCKS IN A ROW AND BE READY TO LAUNCH FOR OUR 2019 BEGINNING OF THE SEASON.>>A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE OF INFORMATION AND JUST THE ORGANIZATION AROUND THE ENTIRE ORGANIZATION ITSELF IS INCREDIBLE. THE PROFESSIONALISM IS SECOND TO NONE AND YOU KNOW I’M EXCITED ABOUT GETTING TO MEET THE PEOPLE AND PUT FACES TO NAMES. THERE’S AN OLD QUOTE NOBODY KNOWS THAT YOU CARE UNTIL YOU CARE. SO I LOOK FORWARD TO ESTABLISHING A RELATIONSHIP.>>I’M MORGAN CONKLIN. 0.>>WELCOME BACK, IT’S 1-0. HOME TEAM OVER THE VISITORS. RUDOLPH AT 45. HALF TIME BROUGHT TO YOU BY HOLLYWOOD CASINO. THEY ARE EXCITED TO BE THE PARK FOR UPCOMING SAINT LOUIS FC HOME GAMES. WE HAVE A GAME COMING UP ON ESPN. WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 23RD, AT 7:30 P.M. WE’LL BE BACK WITH THE SECOND HALF NEXT. IN FENTON, 1-0. RUDOLPH AND COMPANY. WE’LL BE BACK. 0.>>WELCOME BACK TO TOYOTA STADIUM. HOLLYWOOD CASINO IS EXCITED TO BE FOR UPCOMING SAINT LOUIS FC HOME GAMES. BRUCE SILVER MAN ALONG WITH ALBERT MUNYOZ.>>BOTH SEEMS STRUGGLED BUT BOTH TEAMS TRIED TO MAKE AN IMPACT ON THE FINAL THIRD. CLEAR OPPORTUNITIES HEREBY PARK, AND HERTZOG WHO HAD A RIGHT-FOOTED SHOT.>>FOR ME HERTZOG HAS HAD HIS CHANCES. YOU SEE HOW LONG HE TAKES TO TRY TO GET THAT BALL TO THE RIGHT FOOT.>>HE WAS HESITANT. AND THIS IS THE SECOND OPPORTUNITY HE HAD AND WE KEPT TALKING ABOUT THIS OVER AND OVER. WHY DIDN’T HE TURN TO HIS RIGHT FOOT, HIS STRONG FOOT. HE TOOK A SHOT WITH HIS LEFT AND HE GAVE UP TWO PERFECTLY GOAL OPPORTUNITIES HERE THAT SLID BY.>>THIS ONE HE TAKES WITH HIS LEFT FOOT, AND YOU CAN SEE HE JUST WASN’T TOO HAPPY ABOUT THAT. HERE’S A DEVASTATING SITUATION FOR SAINT LOUIS. FIRST THEY MISS THE SHOT, THEN THEY’RE GOING TO MISS DANIEL JACKSON.>>WHO IS SUCH A DANGEROUS PLAYER. I’M SURE HE TORE HIS HAMSTRING, STRAINED IT, IT’S HARD TO SEE A GOOD PLAYER INJURED BUT THAT’S THE NAME OF THE GAME. SAINT LOUIS HAS CONTINUED PLAYING REALLY WELL, TOUCHED THE BALL AND THEY HAD AN EXCEPTIONAL GOAL HERE : THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL GOAL.>>BEAUTIFUL GOAL THAT FOLLOWED A BEAUTIFUL PASS BY SEW VOLESKY. NOTHING REALLY JUMPS OUT AT ME. THE ONLY THING THAT COUNTS ALBERT IS THE GOAL SCORE BY RUDOLPH.>>EIGHT SHOTS AGAINST THREE IN FAVOR OF PITTSBURGH, 50/50% WITH POSSESSION. IT’S AN OPEN GAME. WE’RE DOWN BY ONE HERE. THE STATS OBVIOUSLY ARE STATS. THE SECOND HALF WILL DICTATE THE REST OF THE GAME.>>YOU HAVE SAINT LOUIS WHO HAS GIVEN GIVEN UP GOALS. YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE TWO GUYS WEARING NUMBER NINE IN THIS MATCH.>>I WANT TO PULL OUT THAT BEETLES REVOLUTION NUMBER NINE FOR THE FROM FROM THE BEETLES WHITE ALBUM. .>>BOTH TEAMS HAVE COME OUT WITH ENERGY. YOU’RE GOING TO WANT TO BE IMPLEMENTING THEIR MENTALITY. PARKES IS AS ACTIVE AS ANYBODY ON THIS PITCH, SLOW TO GET UPHOLDING THAT RIGHT TOE. HE’LL HAVE TO RUN IT OFF.>>HE’S A STRONG BOY. HE’LL REBOUND OFF THAT. HE’S AN EXCEPTIONAL AND VERY IMPORTANT PLAYER HERE FOR PITTSBURGH.>>WASHINGTON GETS RIDDEN OFF THE BALL BY STOJKOV. NOW VOLESKY AND CHEVY GETTING MIXED UP. PARKES DOESN’T SHOW ANY AFFECTS UNTIL HE GOES DOWN AND THAT LOOKS LIKE IT SHOULD BE — YOU SEE PREGNANT KEY PREKI UPSET .>>THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.>>VAR GO BLUE THE WHISTLE.>>COREY HERTS, HERTZOG, WE HAVE 1-1.>>GRINWIS HAD NO CHANCE TO STOP THAT.>>ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL BY THE VETERAN. HIS 8th ON THE SEASON. AND HE DOES WHAT PITTSBURGH COULD NOT DO IN THE FIRST HALF. HE GETS IT PAST NUMBER 99.>>HE WANTED TO REDEEM HIMSELF FROM THE FIRST TWO CHANCES HE HAD IN THE FIRST HALF. HE’S A SPECIALIST, HE TRAINS WEEK AFTER WEEK, SPENDS HOURS IN THE FREE KICK. THIS IS A PRODUCTION OF HARD WORK. SO I APPLAUD HIM AND NOW WE HAVE A MATCH. IT’S 1-1. EARLY ON IN THE SECOND HALF, 0-0 BASICALLY.>>SAINT LOUIS, AGAIN TRYING TO DUMP AND CHASE. UNFORCED ERROR. THAT WILL BE A FOUL BY RYAN HOWE.>>IT SHOULD PROVIDE A LOT OF CONFIDENCE FOR HERTZ OHHING PITTSBURGH RIGHT NOW. THEY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PER SUE ANOTHER GOAL OR TWO. .>>WE MADE A LOT OF THAT RUDOLPH GOAL, THEN THAT SAME TIMEFRAME JUST INTO THE SECOND HALF, HERTZOG EVENED THINGS UP. TO ME BOTH OF THESE TEAMS NEED TO GET AWAY FROM DUMP AND CHASE. IT HAS NOT BEEN VERY EFFECTIVE. BOTH TEAMS SHOWING SOMETHING WHEN THEY JUST STAY ON THE BALL. THAT GOAL BY RUDOLPH AND THAT BACK HEEL PASS TO SET IT UP BY VOLESKY WAS JUST BRINGING IT DOWN STATION TO STATION, DUMP AND CHASE HAS NOT WORKED FOR EITHER CLUB.>>I AGREE, POSSESSION IS GOING TO BE KEY FOR BOTH AND DEVELOPING PLACE FROM THE BACK. BOTH TEAMS HAVE QUALITY PLAYERS AND THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO CONTINUOUSLY CREATE.>>NICE SERVICE BY HERTZOG. HE WAS TRYING TO PUNCH IT OUT OF THE AIR AND HE WASN’T ABLE TO PUT ENOUGH ON IT. SOUTO, AND HE’S GOING TO GET CARTED IN THE 51st MINUTE.>>BACK TO THAT BY HERTZOG ABOUT CHEVY WALK WOULD HAVE CONNECTED, YEAH, HE LEAPED INTO HIS BOBBY. IF WALSH WOULD HAVE HAD A CONNECT ON THAT BALL THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN AN EXCEPTIONAL SHOT AND IT PROBABLY WOULD HAVE BEEN A GOAL.>>DAVID USING HIS BIG FRAME, STILL ON THE BALL, FLICKS IT FORWARD. VOLESKY JUST COULDN’T CATCH IT CLEANLY. SAINT LOUIS WILL BUILD FROM THE BACK. CAN HE GET OFF A SHOT? HE’S GOING TO DRIBBLE ON THE LINE AND HE WERE HIS CLUB A CORNER OFF THE BODY OF THIS CORNER IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE ELECTRO SAVINGS CORNER KICK.>>I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO BE ABLE TO TAKE A SHOT WITH HIS LEFT FOOT BUT HE WENT WIDER AND WIDER.>>INTO THE BOX HEADED AWAY, STOJKOV GOT THERE FIRST. BUT IT IS PITTSBURGH ON THE BALL. WHISTLE, NO CARD. PREKI KEY VERY ANIMATEDVERY ANIMATED — PREKI VERY ANIMATED.>>SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN ARGUMENT WITH THE REFEREE, CHEVY TOOK HIS RIP FROM OUTSIDE THE 18. PARKES WILL TAKE THIS ONE. HE’S BEEN SHARING THESE WITH KERR THROUGHOUT THE EVENING. RIGHT FOOT IN SWING TOWARD ADAM GRINWIS.>>INTERESTING ENOUGH I WOULD THINK PARKES WOULD BE IN THE CENTER OF THE FIELD THERE.>>BECAUSE OF THE HEIGHT?>>YES.>>AND YOU SEE JAMAL JACK AND STOJKOV GETTING TANGLED UP JUST AROUND THE 12. EVERYBODY SEPARATES OUT. IT’S DRIVEN AND KNOCKED OUT. SENT RIGHT BACK IN. ADAM SHOWING SOME HOPS. THE U.S. L IS THE MOST PROMINENT SECOND DIVISION IN PROFESSIONAL SOCCER IN THE WORLD FEATURING SOME OF THE GAMES TOP TALENT AND RISING STARS. STAY UP-TO-DATE BY VISITING USL SOCCER.COM AND FOLLOW US ON [email protected]>>>VARGO HAVING A CONVERSATION AND KERR SHOWING MORE PAIN. NOW IS HE SHOWING MORE PAIN BECAUSE THERE’S A CONVERSATION? THEY’RE HAVING A CONVERSATION RIGHT ABOVE HIM. THE CAPTAIN TRYING TO SELL IT. IT WILL BE SAINT LOUIS RIGHT THERE.>>FROM MY PAST EXPERIENCE I WOULD SAY THE LATTER, HE’S TRYING TO SELL IT. TRYING TO GET THAT FREE KICK.>>WALSH, CHEVY WAS PUTTING ON SOME PRESSURE, FLICKED ON THE HEAD TO VOLESKY. NICE JOB BY DAVID TO GET IT TO VOLESKY. CENTERS CLEARED OFF THAT BACK LINE, BACK INTO THE 18 AND THAT IS ABOUT AS NONCHALANT AS YOU WILL FIND. A SAFE BY DAVE MITCHELL.>>HE ALREADY HAD A GOOD CHANCE TO HAVE A GOAL BUT THE BALL SKIDDED PAST HIM. .>>1-1 IF YOU’RE JUST JOINING US. IT WAS A GOAL JUST BEFORE THE BREAK BY SETH RUDOLPH, HIS 4th ON THE SEASON. JUST AFTER WE GOT THE SECOND HALF STARTED, PLAY ON THERE, IT WAS A FREE KICK BY COREY HERTZOG IN THE 42nd MINUTE.>>IT WOULD BE GREAT TO PUT TOGETHER A COMPILATION OF ALL OF HIS EXPRESSIONS THROUGHOUT THE EVENING.>>I’M SURE THAT EXISTS. SOMEONE HAS DONE THAT BEFORE.>>IT’S LIKE YOU KNOW WHEN YOU GO TO YOUR CELL PHONE AND YOU GO TO THE EMOJIS, THERE’S ALL THE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS RIGHT THERE.>>DEFINITELY SO.>>SO WORK ON THAT IN SAINT LOUIS. INSTEAD OF THE LITTLE YELLOW FACES IT’S HIS FACE.>>CLEAR INTO THE NIGHT AND IT WILL BE A THROW FOR PITTSBURGH IN THE FINAL THIRD.>>SPEAKING OF PREKI, HE’S THE ULTIMATE PLAYER’S COACH. HE’S GOING TO INFLUENCE YOU AND MOTIVATE YOU IN A GOOD WAY. HE’S GOING TO COMMAND THE SHIP. HE’S GOING TO VOCAL LIEZ IZE HIS EXPRESSIONS AND HIS EMOTIONS. THAT’S EXCEPTIONAL HE HAS THE ABILITY TO DO THAT FOR HIS TEAM AND FOR THE LEAGUE. PREKI HAS SUCH A BIG RESUME IN SOCCER.>>DID YOU ALWAYS APPRECIATE PLAYING FOR A PLAYER’S COACH.>>YES, I THINK IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO HAVE. IT’S A SITUATION WHERE YOU CAN, ESPECIALLY BASED ON HIS EXPERIENCE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THAT.>>THE ELECTRO SAVINGS QUARTER KICK COMING UP RIGHT NOW. APPIAH RIGHT FOOT. DRIVES IT. SEE WHICH WAY IT GOES. IT WILL BE A GOAL KICK FOR TREY MITCHELL. NORMALLY WHEN I SIT AND TALK TO PLAYERS AND IT DOESN’T MATTER THE SPORT, BUT ESPECIALLY IN SOCCER THEY ALWAYS APPRECIATE PLAYING FOR A PLAYER’S COACH, A GUY THAT UNDERSTANDS THE GAME, UNDERSTANDS WHAT YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH AND WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH AS A PLAYER, AND ONE THAT IS COMPLETELY RELATABLE.>>EXACTLY. THOSE ARE THE PERFECT WORDS TO CHOOSE TO DESCRIBE THAT, RELATABLE. SO IF YOU HAVE NEVER PLAYED AT ANY LEVEL AND YOU PRETEND TO COACH, IT’S VERY DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND YOUR PLAYERS. .>>LONG THROW. PITTSBURGH COMES UP WITH IT, HERS SOMETHING HERTZOG SENDS IT FORWARD. THAT BALL IS STILL ON THE PITCH. CHEVY LOST SIGHT OF IT. FINDS HIS FEET. CENTERS, HERTZOG LAYS OFF. SAINT LOUIS DUMPING CHASE. PITTSBURGH NOW KERR. OFF THE MARK.>>EXCEPTIONAL A ATTEMPT.>>THIS SUBSTITUTION BROUGHT TO YOU BY. THAT’S THE EVENING FOR TYLER DAVID.>>HE HAD A GOOD FIRST HALF AND I THINK IT WAS TIME FOR HIM TO COME OUT AND GIVE SOMEONE ELSE AN OPPORTUNITY. HERTZOG HAD AN OPPORTUNITY AND IF HE WOULD HAVE HIT IT A LITTLE LIGHTER ON THE HEAD IT IT COULD HAVE BEEN AN EXCEPTIONAL GOAL.>>SO PETOSEVIC FINDS HIMSELF IN THIS MATCH.>>IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE THE WAY HE MANAGES THIS GAME.>>THAT’S WHEN YOU HAVE TO SUBSTITUTE SOME WOIN IN THE 30th MINUTE. IT’S A VERY, VERY CLOSE GAME. IT’S NOT WIDE OPEN AT THIS POINT FOR EITHER TEAM.>>FOOT RACE AND A WHISTLE. ADD WALLY NEEDS TO BE CAREFUL EWOLE NEEDS TO BE CAREFUL.>>OKAY. ALBERT, TIME TO PLAY, DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN THE BUILDING.>>I WAS GOING TO MENTION EARLIER, I NOTICED SAINT LOUIS HAS A DECENT CROWD FOR THEIR STADIUM. THEY’RE CHEERING, THEY’RE SINGING, THEY HAVE A KIDS SECTION. LET’S TAKE A GUESS.>>I KNOW THE NUMBERS SO I’LL LET YOU GET.>>ANYWHERE BETWEEN THREE AND 5,000 PEOPLE.>>OH, WOW, TALK ABOUT BEING CONSERVATIVE. WE’LL GET BACK TO THIS GAME IN A SECOND. SAINT LOUIS SETTLES IT DOWN. LOOKING TO GET OUT OF THE MIDDLE INTO THAT FINAL THIRD. THEY DO. RUDOLPH CAN HE PICK UP HIS SECOND BRACE IN AS MANY WEEKS? NOT YET. JAMAL JACK COMES UP WITH ANOTHER CORNER FOR SAINT LOUIS. THE ELECTRO SAVINGS CORNER KICK AND APPIAH WILL TAKE THE JOG OVER TO THAT FAR CORNER, THE LOANEST LONELIEST PART OF THE PITCH. HERE IN THE 63rd MINUTE. HIGH IN THE AIR. THE BALL IS STILL PIN BALLING AROUND. RUDOLPH BLASTS IT, KNOCKED AWAY.>>I THOUGHT PETOSEVIC WAS GOING TO HAVE A CHANCE THERE WHEN HE CAME IN. THERE WAS A SCRAMBLE. INTERESTING PLAY BY SAINT LOUIS. THEY’RE PUTTING MORE PRESSURE NOW, SO THE GAME IS WIDE OPEN FOR BOTH TEAMS, PUTTING PRESSURE, CREATING CHANCES. IT’S GOING TO BE VERY DID HE CLOSE IN THE NEXT FEW MINUTES OKAI SENDS IT FOR WAFRD, THE CENTER IS LOOKING FOR HERTZOG AND IT’S KNOCKED AWAY. HERE COMES SAINT LOUIS ON THE ATTACK. HE PULLS UP THE BRAKES, HAS TO LAY OFF.>>INTERESTING PLAY BY POI LESS HERE HE PULLS UP THE BREAKS AND THAT’S WHAT IT IS. HE HAS TO SEND IT OUT WIDE. IT LOOKS LIKE HE WANTED TO STOP IT BUT THE BALL ENDED UP BEHIND HIM. THIS ELECTRO SAVINGS CORNER KICK COMING UP.>>I WOULD AGREE WITH THE FIRST. HE SHOULD HAVE TAKEN THE SHOT WITH THE LEFT FOOT THEN HE TRIED TO CUT IT AND HE DIDN’T HAVE A GOOD TOUCH BECAUSE IT CAME OFF THE LEG. WE SAW HERTZOG EARLIER, A BALL DRIVEN AND KNOCKED AWAY BY PITTSBURGH. NOW INTO THE BOX. I THINK WE’RE GOING TO HAVE — YEAH, YEAH, THAT’S PRETTY OBVIOUS, TONY WALSH AND TREY MITCHELL IS NOT HAPPY. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS REPLAY.>>FROM THIS ANGLE IT LOOKS LIKE A PENALTY KICK.>>ABSOLUTELY.>>IT CLIPPED HIM.>>HE GETS THERE AND GETS HIS FOOT ON THE BALL AND MITCHELL IS VERY, VERY LATE. IT ALSO LOOK LIKE MITCHELL WENT INTO THE BOOK FOR THAT IN.>>HE SAW THAT GOALKEEPER COMING OUT AT FULL SPEED. HE TOOK THAT SLIDE TOUCH AND HE DRAGGED HIS FOOT. THAT’S THE TYPICAL TACTIC OF A PENALTY KICK. 56th MINUTE. THIS COULD BE THE GAME WINNER.>>ALREADY. PETOSEVIC WILL BE 36 FEET AWAY FROM THE MAN WHO HAD THE INFRACTION. WILL PETOSEVIC MAKE HIM PAY? HE’S GOING TO GET A SIX-YARD RUN ON THIS BALL. HERE WE GO. GOOD SAVE BY MITCHELL. WOW. AND MITCHELL IS DOWN. THE PLAY WILL STOP. MITCHELL IS HURT.>>DID HE LAND WRONG? IT WAS AN OUTSTANDING SAVE BUT THEY’RE CALLING FOR THE MEDICAL STAFF.>>WELL PLACED SHOT, REALLY WELL TAKEN.>>IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS SOMETHING WITH THE ARM. OUT STRETCHED AND THERE WAS SO MUCH PACE ON THAT BALL. COULD IT HAVE TAKEN THE SHOULDER OUT OF THE SOCKET? YOU CAN SEE, HE’S LAYING ON THE GROUND AND HE’S TREATING THAT LEFT SHOULDER. IF WE CAN SEE THAT REPLAY AGAIN I THINK IT’S THE LEFT ARM.>>IT’S GOING TO THE RIGHT SIDE, HE MIGHT HAVE HIGHER EXTENDED HIS SHOULDER OR HIS ARM. THAT’S WEIRD.>>STILL HOLDING THAT LEFT SHOULDER.>>GREAT SAVE, NEVER THE LESS. THELESS.>>ROCKET SHOCK. IT LOOKS LIKE THE SAVE WAS WITH THAT LEFT ARM. HE’S POINTING TO THE INSIDE OF HIS ARM. SO IF THAT THING STAYED IN THE SOCKET, THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING ELSE. YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU MAKE JOKES ABOUT SOMETHING, YOU TAKE YOUR ARM OFF, I THINK PETOSEVIC ALMOST TOOK MITCHELL’S ARM OFF. I DON’T WANT TO MAKE LIGHT OF A POTENTIAL INJURY, BUT THAT WAS AN UNBELIEVABLE STRIKE BY PETOSEVIC.>>IN ALL MY YEARS, THOUGH, I’VE NEVER SEEN A GOALKEEPER BLOCK A RIGHT SIDED SHOT WITH HIS LEFT ARM. USUALLY YOU FOLLOW UP WITH THE RIGHT ARM BUT IT’S REALLY — IS HE BLEEDING? IT LOOKED LIKE HE WAS BLEEDING. IT’S REALLY RARE TO SEE POWER ON A PLAY SHOT POTENTIALLY HURT A GOALKEEPER’S ARM.>>SO MITCHELL HEADING TO THE SIDE LINES HERE IN THE 69th MINUTE. YOU TALK ABOUT TAKING THAT DIVE TO THE RIGHT. BOTH ARMS WENT TO THE RIGHT. THAT ARM WAS STRUCK SO FAST, MITCHELL WHO WAS BASICALLY PARALLEL TO THE GROUND WITH BOTH ARMS EXTENDED. THAT BALL HIT THE LEFT HAND FIRST. IT LOOKS LIKE FOR NOW HE’S GOING TO STAY IN THE MATCH.>>IF PITTSBURGH PENETRATES FOR SAINT LOUIS AN ADVANTAGE BECAUSE IF THEY PENETRATE THE GOAL AGAIN AND THEY KNOW HE’S INJURED, IT COULD BE AN ADVANTAGE. SO I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG THEY’RE GOING TO WAIT UNTIL THEY SUB HIM OUT.>>.>>YOU CAN JOIN THE NETWORK THAT COVERS 99% OF THE PEOPLE IN THE U.S. VISIT METRO FOR MORE INFORMATION AND LATEST OFFERS.>>MAT PERRELLA LOOKS LIKE HE WAS SET TO COME IN. MAYBE THEY WILL SEE HOW MUCH LONGER MITCHELL CAN GO. THE WAY HE WAS RUNNING HIS ARMS SAYING HURRY UP, HURRY UP, IT DIDN’T LOOK LIKE HE WAS FAVORING ONE SHOULDER OVER THE OTHERS.>>SOMETIMES PLAYERS DON’T WANT TO COME OUT BECAUSE THEY WANT TO CONTINUE PLAYING BUT YOU’RE THE GOALKEEPER, YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU’RE HONEST WITH YOUR TEAM AND COACH. IF YOU CAN’T KEEP GOING YOU SHOULD NOT KEEP GOING. BUT THIS CASE, IT SEEMS LIKE HE WANTS TO KEEP GOING.>>I’M TRYING TO KEEP ON EYE ON HIM AT THE TOP OF THE SCREEN, TO SEE HOW HE IS WITH THAT LEFT ARM BUT YOU SEE HE CAUGHT IT WITH HIS LEFT ARM, I WOULD SAY HE’S OKAY. BUT IN ALL YOUR YEARS OF PLAYING THIS GAME, ALBERT, HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A PLAYER WHO WANTED TO COME OUT.>>NOPE, THAT’S WHY I SAY THAT, AND SOMETIMES IT’S SELL SELFISH. IT MIGHT HINDER YOUR TEAM. .>>BALL MOVING FORWARD. SAINT LOUIS ON IT IN THE FINAL THIRD. TANGLED UP WITH CHEVY. CHEVY NOW BACK ON THE BALL. SENT FORWARD, NICE BALL, HERTZOG, AND HE’S TAKEN DOWN AND GUESS WHAT? SAME THING, JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE, AND A CARD THIS TIME TO GRINWIS. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A MOMENT LIKE THAT.>>EXACT SAME PLACE, TOO, STRETCH OUT, TAKE A TOUCH, DRAG YOUR FOOT AND THEY BOTH GET UP IMMEDIATELY.>>I’VE ALSO NEVER SEEN A GAME IN WHICH SOMEBODY ADMITTED TO A YELLOW CARD. SO, ALL RIGHT, WE’RE GOING TO HAVE ANOTHER PK, THIS ONE IS GOING TO BE THE 73rd MINUTE WHENEVER THE BALL ENDS UP ON THE SPOT. AND COREY HERTZOG LOOKING FOR A BRACE AND THIS WOULD PUT PITTSBURGH ON TOP AND MR. VARGO WILL COME IN AND SEPARATE EVERYBODY.>>RIGHT FOOTED SHOT, USUALLY GOES TO THE RIGHT FOOT, LEFT OF THE GOAL, IF I’M LEFT I GO TO THE RIGHT SIDE. LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH HERTZOG.>>HE’S GOING RIGHT UP THE GUT. RIGHT UP THE GUT. 2-1.>>YOU KNOW HIM WELL.>>A BRACE FOR COREY HERTZOG, HIS 9th OF THE SEASON. 73rd MINUTE.>>THIS IS THE BEAUTY OF SOCCER. HE HITS IT RIGHT UP AND WE’RE 2-1. THIS IS A GREAT SHOT. IF YOU CHIP THE BALL UP TO THE SIDE OF THE GOAL OR YOU JUST HIT IT DOWN THE STREAM SO IT WORKED OUT WELL FOR HIM.>>THIS SUBSTITUTION BROUGHT TO YOU BIAS THE GOAL SCORER IS OUT. THIRD SUBSTITUTION FOR PREKI ON THE EVENING. THE AIRMAN IS IN. THAT’S IN THE 74th MINUTE. SO IN THE 74th MINUTE CORY HERTZOG AND COMPANY IS UP 2-1. DAVE BRANDT STILL HAS HIS FULL ARSENAL OF SUBSTITUTES TO USE IN THIS MATCH AND HE’S UP A GOAL. THINGS DEFINITELY IN FAVOR OF PITTSBURGH WITH 15 MINUTES TO GO.>>I WOULD SAY SO. IT’S A HUGE ADVANTAGE. YOU HAVEN’T HAD TO USE YOUR SUBSTITUTES AND YOU’RE UP AND YOU JUST SCORE A GOAL, SO POWER TO HIM. I THINK PREKI HAS FAITH IN HIS TEAM. EITHER WAY, HE’S MADE HIS CHANGES AND HOPEFULLY THESE PLAYERS CAN STEP UP TO THE PLATE.>>HOWE LOSSES THE HANDLE. THAT BALL IS OFF OF HOWE.>>THIS IS THE TIME FOR PLAYERS TO REALLY STEP UP AND BRING THEIR EXPERIENCE. THEY HAVE TO LEAD THE WAY. THEY HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA AT THE TOP SHERIFF’S OFFICE — . IT WILL WILL HAVE THE THROW, YOU WILL BE A LITTLE SURPRISED AT SETH RUDOLPH WHO SCORED THAT GOAL ENDED UP OUT OF THE GAME?>>I’M NOT SURPRISED. I’VE SEEN IT HAPPEN. IT MIGHT BE BECAUSE PREKI SEES SOMETHING WE DON’T. MAYBE HE WANTS SOMEONE ELSE. THESE ARE ALL CHANGES HE’S GOING TO MAKE BASED ON HIS EXPERIENCE AND STRATEGY. SO IT DOESN’T SURPRISE ME. JUST BECAUSE YOU SCORE A GOAL DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE PLAYING WELL. I’M NOT SAYING HE DIDN’T PLAY WELL, SOMETIMES COACHES MAKE CHANGES.>>IT GETS TO HOWE. A LITTLE BIT OF EXCITEMENT WITH THE WHISTLE. AND PREKI HAVING A LITTLE BIT MORE EXCITEMENT AS WELL. FOR 50 YEARS JET TRANSPORTATION HAS DELIVERED A PERFECT RIDE EVERY TIME. RECEIVE SPECIAL FAN OFFERS WHEN YOU MENTION PRO MY CODE FCLFC.>>SAINT LOUIS TAKING THEIR TIME FROM THE BACK WALLS. GIVE AND GO. HOWE. AND WE HAVE ANOTHER WITH A CORNER KICK. THE ELECTRO SAVINGS CORNER KICK. DUFFIE WAS THE MAN WHO GAVE IT TO SAINT LOUIS. APPIAH WILL GO OVER AND TAKE THIS ONE. RIGHT FOOT IS WHAT WILL SPRING TOWARDS MITCHELL. HIGH IN THE AIR. HE PUNCHES IT OUT WITH THE RIGHT ARM. STOJKOV SENDS IT INTO THE BOX. AND MITCHELL WILL CATCH THIS ONE AND LAND ON THAT LEFT SHOULDER. AND NOW PUNTED AWAY. VOLESKY, A LITTLE GIVE AND GUY. PETOSEVIC, YOU HAVE TO LIKE THAT RIGHT STIFF ARM.>>THEY WANT TO TRY TO CAPITALIZE. THEY HAVE PETOSEVIC AND VOLESKY WHO ARE WELL OVER SIX FEET EACH SO HUGE ADVANTAGE HERE.>>KICK IS DRIVEN, KNOCKED AWAY.>>I WANTED TO MAKE A COMMENT ABOUT PETOSEVIC LOOKING LIKE A SAINT LOUIS AMERICAN FOOTBALL PLAYER, THEN I REALIZED THE RAMS MOVED.>>GOOD CATCH.>>THE CARDINALS MOVED A LONG TIME AGO.>>SAINT LOUIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC SPORTS TOWN REGARDLESS OF FOOTBALL WHETHER IT’S THE AMERICAN KIND OR THE KIND THAT WE’RE PLAYING HERE TONIGHT, THE SAINT LOUIS CARDINALS, THE SAINT LOUIS BLUES. SO, ANOTHER MAN IN THE BOOK AND THAT IS MR. WALLS IN THE 79th MINUTE. SO THREE CARDS FOR SAINT LOUIS TONIGHT. PETOSEVIC, APPIAH, A COLLISION JUST OUTSIDE OF THE 6. SIX. LATE WHISTLE STOPS PLAY. ADVANTAGE TO SAINT LOUIS.>>IT’S CRUNCH TIME FOR SAINT LOUIS. LAST TEN MINUTES. EVERY SINGLE KICK NEEDS TO BE ON FRAME. THIS IS THE TIME TO SHINE FOR THESE PLAYERS.>>APPIAH HAS BEEN THE MAN WITH THE RIGHT FOOT, SETTING JUST ABOUT EVERY SET PIECE THIS EVENING FOR SAINT LOUIS. RIGHT FOOT, INTO THE BOX, HIGH IN THE AIR, PITTSBURGH, THAT SHOULD BE A CORNER. THAT IS WHAT IS AWARDED AND THIS IS ANOTHER ELECTRO SAVINGS CORNER KICK. APPIAH COMES OVER TO TAKE IT. WILL SWING TOWARD MITCHELL. DRIVEN LOW, COULD HAVE BEEN VERY DANGEROUS. BUT IT’S CLEARED OUT. LEDBETTER TOWARDS THE 6,SIX, PUT INTO THE STANDS. THROW COMING UP SAINT LOUIS. THAT WILL GO PAST THE GOAL LINE AND MITCHELL WILL KICK IT AWAY. 82nd MINUTE, PITTSBURGH UP 2-1. A PK AT 73 AND SETH RUDOLPH WITH A GOAL AT THE 44th MINUTE. FOR SAINT LOUIS. MITCHELL RIGHT FOOT. STOJKOV, TURNOVER. COACH BRANDT HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE HIS SUBSTITUTES IF HE WANTS IN THE LAST EIGHT MINUTES OR SOUTO KILL SOME TIME AND GET TO KIM SOME TIME.>>I WONDER IF HE WILL MAKE A CHANGE.>>I FIGURE HE WILL TO SLOW THE CLOCK DOWN IN HIS CASE A LITTLE BIT OR SPEED IT UP. PARKES IS THE ONE THAT LOST A HANDLE ON THAT ONE. DAVE BRANDT HAS ALL THREE OF HIS SUBSTITUTIONS AT HIS DISPOSAL. PREKI HAS ALREADY USED ALL THREE OF HIS. MY QUESTION TO YOU, ALBERT, IS IF AND WHEN BRANDT DOES GO TO HIS BENCH, DOES HE GO DEFENSE OR OFFENSE WITH A ONE GOAL LEAD.>>THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION. I WOULD SAY TO BE SAFE, YOU WANT SOMEONE TO COME IN AND RELIEVE THAT STRESS.>>PARKES TAKEN DOWN, PLAY CONTINUES AND AS YOU STARTED SAYING DO YOU TAKE OUT SOMEBODY WHO IS PROBABLY EXHAUSTED. I STARTED TO THINK OF PARKES BECAUSE HE’S BEEN ALL OVER THIS PARK ALL NIGHT LONG. YOU SEE HIM WITH ANOTHER COUNTER RIGHT BEFORE HE’S TAKEN DOWN. NO WHISTLE ON THAT PLAY. BUT DO YOU TAKE OUT ROMEO PARKES AND PUT IN ANOTHER DEFENDER AND GO FIVE IN THE BACK BUT THEN AGAIN PARKES HAS BEEN PLAYING TWO WAY SOCCER, I’M NOT SURE YOU NEED TO TAKE HIM OUT.>>I DON’T SEE HIM SLOWING DOWN AT ALL. IF I NOTICE FATIGUE, IF I NOTICE HIM MAKING MISTAKES, BUT HE’S A 90-MINUTE PLAYER. I WOULD GO WITH KERR, OR HERTZOG. BUT UP SOME DEFENSE AND RUN ON THE CLOCK.>>STOJKOV, GETS IT BACK. SNIES BALL, NICER PASS. SAINT LOUIS SPENDING A LOT OF TIME BUT UNABLE TO TURN AND FIRE AGAINST MITCHELL. A CARD HANDED OUT. AFTER THE FINAL WHISTLE HEAD OVER TO TRADER.COM TO VOTE FOR THE MAN OF THE MATCH. JAMAL JACK PICKS UP THAT CARD.>>LATE TACKLE HERE , VERY, VERY RECKLESS TACKLE HERE. IT SHOULD NOT HAPPEN IN THESE MOMENTS. A NICE SMOOTH PLAY AND HAS CREATED AN OPPORTUNITY HERE FOR A FREE KICK.>>JACK 4th, PITTSBURGH YELLOW CARD OF THE EVENING. APPIAH. STOJKOV JOINS THE 18, GOES RIGHT AT IT. MITCHELL WITH THE SAVE. HE FOUND A CREASE, HE GOT IT THROUGH, BUT EASY SAVE FOR TREY MITCHELL. : PITTSBURGH FINALLY COMES UP WITH IT. CHEVY. AND NOW SAINT LOUIS. APPIAH WITH TWO DEFENDERS IN FRONT OF HIM. IT’S KNOCKED AWAY. NOW LIKING FOR A LOAN STRIKER. COREY HERTZOG. WALSH WILL LET THAT ONE GET PAST THE LINE. THIS SUBSTITUTION BROUGHT TO YOU BY GNW MEATS. AND RYAN AD ADELEYE COMES IN. THEN.>>THAT MAKES SENSE, THAT’S STRATEGIC, THAT’S SMART. THAT’S THE WAY THEY’RE GOING TO PLAY OUT THE NEXT FEW MINUTES.>>SO RYAN ADELEYE CHECKS INTO THE GAME, HE HAS BEEN COMING BACK FROM INJURY THIS SEASON. PLAYED 34 MINUTES PREVIOUSLY IN HIS LONE GAME. THE MAJORITY OF HIS CAREER HAS BEEN PLAYED IN ISRAEL. HE IMMEDIATELY GETS INTO THE ACTION PLAY ON SAYS VARGA. KERR. WALSH, HOWELL. AND NOW PITTSBURGH BACK ON THE BALL. HERTZOG. WASHINGTON. GET PAST THE AIRMAN. THROWS IT BACKWARDS BUT IT’S ENTER ACCEPTED BY SAINT LOUIS. THEY MOVE QUICKLY TO MOVE FORWARD. INTO THE BOX HEADED AWAY. HERTZOG, AND FINALLY A WHISTLE. WALSH HAS TO BE CAREFUL. HE’S ALREADY SITTING ON A YELLOW CARD IN THE 79th MINUTE. THE CONTACT WASN’T ENOUGH FOR A CARD BUT TURNING AND GIVING HIS ATTENTION TO VARGA ON THE WHISTLE WOULD BE ENOUGH.>>EVEN IF YOU’RE DOWN BY ONE YOU DON’T NEED TO GET ANOTHER YELLOW CARD OR EVEN GET EJECTED. THERE’S STILL A CHANCE, LET’S GIVE IT OUR ALL BUT LET’S NOT BE RECKLESS.>>WALSH SENDS IT FORWARD. HEADED AWAY. OKAI, NOW WASHINGTON WILL CARRY IT. WE HAVE SIX MINUTES OF ADDED TIME FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE. THIS STOPPAGE TIME IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY HOT SHOTS. BE SURE TO VISIT ONE OF THE 12 HOT SHOTS LOCATIONS AFTER THE MATCH. SO SETTLE IN FOLKS WE HAVE PLENTY OF TIME. A LOT CAN HAPPEN IN THIS ADDED TIME. GRINWIS OUT TO HOWE. PITTSBURGH TRYING TO CLEAR OUT OF THAT FINAL THIRD AND THEY DO. PARKES SENDS IT FORWARD AND COREY HERTZOG WAS SO FAR OFF SIDE, HE WAS ALMOST IN THE LOCKER ROOM AND HAVING A POST GAME MEAL. HE’S EVEN LAUGHING. HE COULDN’T HEAR THE REF. HE COULDN’T HEAR THE WHISTLE.>>COREY HERTZOG GETS A YELLOW CARD AT 90 PLUS ONE TO GO WITH HIS BRACE, NOW PITTSBURGH 5th YELLOW CARD. HOWE TRYING TO SPLIT THE DEFENDERS THERE. HOWELL AND KERR AND DID YOU HAVE IF HE, EVERYBODY GETS IN THE ACT. SAINT LOUIS — AND DUFFIE, EVERYBODY GETS IN THE ACT. SAINT LOUIS TRYING TO TIE THIS GAME UP. PITTSBURGH ADVANTAGE RIGHT NEAR.>>THIS IS A CRUCIAL MOMENT, IF THEY RUN DOWN THE CLOCK THEY HAVE TO MAKE SURE THEY HOLD THE BALL WELL. YOU WANT TO HOLD THE BALL, KEEP POSSESSION, AVOID ANY INJURIES.>>ABOUT FOUR MINUTES LEFT, THEY DO NOT PLAY KEEP AWAY, THEY SEND IT RIGHT DOWN THE FLOOR LOOKING TO ADD TO THEIR LEAD, BUT IT RESULTS IN SAINT LOUIS BEING ON THE BALL AND SENDING IT TOWARDS THE TEAM. HE TOOK HIS CHANCES. THE AIRMAN PUT IT PAST THE GOAL LINE AND PITTSBURGH WILL TAKE THEIR TIME, ADEWOLE SENDS IT DOWN. HERTZOG WAS THE INTENDED RECEIVER ON THAT ONE. JACK PUTS IT PAST THE TOUCH LINE.>>SPEAKING OF HERTZOG, HE HAS WORKED, HE’S BEEN SHOWING A LOT OF PRESENCE, A LOT OF LEADERSHIP. HE’S STILL HUSTLING IN THE LAST MINUTES OF THE GAME. HE HAD A SILENT GAME THE LAST COUPLE TIMES BUT HE REALLY STEPPED UP TO THE PLATE TONIGHT TO BE THAT LEADER FOR THE TEAM FOR PITTSBURGH.>>HE PULLED THE TRIGGER A LITTLE BIT EARLIER IN THE FIRST HALF HE MIGHT HAVE HAD A HAUL BY NOW. INSTEAD HE HAS THE BRACE.>>RIGHT.>>YOU SEE THIS BALL BEING SENT FORWARD, IT’S A LITTLE TOO MUCH. THAT RESULTS IN MITCHELL KICKING IT AWAY. HERTZOG GETS TANGLED UP AND AS WE APPROACH THE 94th MINUTE, TONY WALSH SENDS IT FORWARD. GOOD DEFENSE AND PITTSBURGH STILL TRYING TO GO LONG DISTANCE, THROW COMING UP, SAINT LOUIS, HOW, AND NOW KERR. WASHINGTON KEEPS IT IN PLAY. PITTSBURGH NOW NEEDS TO PLAY KEEP AWAY AND PARKES LETS IT GET PAST HIM. HOWELL SENDS IT FORWARD. JAMAL JACK HAS TO COME BACK INTO THE 18. OKAI CLEARS IT.>>IT WAS NOT ENOUGH FOR A CALL FOR A PENALTY KICK.>>BUT A STOPPAGE OF PLAY AS WE GET THIS SORTED OUT. LAUREN VARGO HAS STOPPED PLAY. THAT WILL HAVE PITTSBURGH KICKING IT AWAY AND ADEWOLE DOES IED AGAIN. LEDBETTER, THAT’S OFF THE BODY OF HERTZOG. THAT JUST WASTES TIME. SIX MINUTES OF ADDED TIME JUST ABOUT UP ON SAINT LOUIS. SOUTO, WALSH, WE’RE PAST SIX MINUTES. WHISTLE IN THE MOUTH OF VARGO. THAT’S GOING TO DO IT. PITTSBURGH RIVERHOUNDS POWERED BY COREY HERTZOG, ONE BETTER THAN SAINT LOUIS FC. THOUGHTS AS WE GO TO THE BREAK ALBERT.>>VERY EXCEPTIONAL GAME, PITTSBURGH CAME ON TOP, WELL DESERVED GOALS. HERTZOG SHOWED UP.>>COREY HERTZOG PICKS UP HIS EIGHT AND NINE OF THE SEASON. TIME FOR US TO TAKE A BREAK. WHEN WE COME BACK WE’LL HAVE HIGHLIGHTS AND MORE BEFORE WE CALL IT A NIGHT FROM SAINT LOUIS. PITTSBURGH TWO, SAINT LOUIS ONE. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK. 0.>>WELCOME BACK TO TOYOTA STADIUM. PITTSBURGH RIVERHOUNDS POWERED BY COREY HERTZOG AT 47, THEN AGAIN AT A PK AT 73, SETH RUDOLPH THE LOAN GOAL FOR SAINT LOUIS.
