Not even two full days removed from falling to English club Wigan Athletic F.C., the Riverhounds defeated the Wilmington Hammerheads, 2-1, Sunday at Highmark Stadium.
With the score tied, 1-1, midfielder Matt Dallman scored what proved to be the winning goal off an assist from Mike Seth in the 79th minute.
Seth, who entered the game in the second half as a substitute, began the scoring for the Riverhounds (6-6-7) with a goal in the 52nd minute. About 20 minutes later, the Hammerheads' Kyle Greig, another second-half substitute, provided an equalizer off a corner kick before Dallman netted the deciding goal seven minutes later.
The victory was the first for the Riverhounds in about a month in United Soccer League Pro play.
Despite taking the loss, the Hammerheads (6-10-4) outshot the Riverhounds, 10-7.
The two teams entered the game tied at 22 points apiece in the USL Pro standings, but with the win, the Riverhounds moved into ninth place in the 14-team league.
With seven games remaining in the season, the Riverhounds return to action with a 4:30 p.m. game July 27 at the Toronto FC Reserves.
