After a two year hiatus, the Riverhounds find themselves back in the third round of the US Open Cup. For their efforts last week in Erie, the Hounds host the Fussyboys of Cincinnati. Cincy’s trip to tonight was a bit more arduous, needing the extra 30 minutes to fend of Detroit City. At stake tonight is a trip to the fourth round, an evening against an MLS side, and a coin toss to decide where that match would be held. Nothing big, right?

The last time the Hounds…

If, when last season ended, we had been told that between Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh, one team would be a bit of a trainwreck before the tenth game of the season, everyone would have shoved all their cash on the Hounds. But, here we are. The Hounds haven’t lost yet this season and Tampa Bay have just lost in their first Open Cup match, sacked…



US OPEN CUP RECAP: Masters and Commanders

The Hounds went up to Erie last night and took care of business, defeating the Erie Commodores 2-1. Besides securing the victory they also got the Open Cup road loss monkey (or parrot if we’re going to stick with cliche nautical things) off their back. Two early-ish goals was all the boys needed though it wasn’t as comfortable as maybe we hoped. Giving up a goal right before the half is never good, but fortunately the Hounds locked it down in the second half and kept it from being a momentum changer.

I ended up having to listen to the “radio” for most of the game so I don’t have much to say on how well the team looked. Quick aside: how awesome was it to have that option? I have no idea what the logistics would be, but a home audio…



Morning Announcements: Car Pools and Watch Party

attention

We have somewhat of a busy week ahead of us, so a friendly reminder on a couple things.

1) On Wednesday night the Hounds head to up Erie to take on the Erie Commodores in the 2nd round of the US Open Cup. Since Erie is fairly close by there are a couple cars full of people heading up. Space is limited but if you’re at all interested make sure to get on our Discord channel to make arrangements. For those of us staying home there should be a live stream of the game. It’ll be hosted on US Soccer’s site, not YouTube or ESPN+. We’ll post a link on our Twitter profile the day of the match.

2) The Hounds are heading down to Tampa on Saturday to take on the Rowdies. Since it’s what we would consider a “big” match,
