Stefan Smith gives Antigua split

Stefan Smith scored twice Sunday to guide Antigua Barracuda to a 3-1 victory against the visiting Pittsburgh Riverhounds, giving the club a split in the two-game series on the weekend after falling 1-0 Friday. Things initially looked like a repeat of the opener with Peter Byers failed on a penalty kick, this time missing wide instead of seeing Hunter Gilstrap make a stop. The penalty was created when Smith was down in the box. The disappointment was erased in the 31st, however, when Quinton Griffith struck a free kick past Gilstrap. Two minutes before the break Smith doubled the advantage; and with nine minute left in the contest he ensured the outcome with his second off a breakaway on excellent work on the wing from Byers. With two minutes remaining, Mike Green spoiled James Molvin’s shutout.
