    Four matches into its inaugural season the Louisville City Football Club is undefeated.

    The city’s newest professional soccer team held onto that streak in dramatic fashion Sunday afternoon.

    Kadeem Dacres’ goal in stoppage time gave the Coopers a 1-1 tie with host Pittsburgh in a United Soccer League game. It was the third straight draw for Louisville City FC (1-0-3) since it won its opening match 2-0 against Saint Louis FC on March 28.  

    The tie earned the Coopers another point (giving them six for the season) and kept them in fourth-place in the USL’s Eastern Conference.

    LouCity and the Riverhounds (1-1-2) played fairly even most of the match. Both teams had 10 shots apiece, while the Coopers had a 6-4 edge in shots on goal.

    Pittsburgh took the lead in the 38th minute when Fejiro Okiomah beat Louisville keeper Scott Goodwin off a free kick.

    Goodwin, though, did finish with three saves, including one with less than 9 minutes to play to keep the Coopers within one goal.

    That proved to be big because in the 90th minute Dacres, one of LouCity’s first signees, took a pass from Bryan Burke and ripped a left-footed shot that curled just past the outstretched hand of Pittsburgh keeper Ryan Thompson and into the net near post.

    The Coopers next host the Tulsa Roughnecks FC (1-2-1) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night at Louisville Slugger Field.
