FC Cincinnati played the Pittsburgh Riverhounds to a tepid 0-0 draw at Highmark Stadium on Wednesday evening. Head coach John Harkes made several lineup changes in response to the heavy schedule of games his team has played recently. Newly acquired forward Casey Townsend started the match and was nearly the difference maker. His 67th minute strike from close range beat the keeper but was denied by the crossbar.
