Steel City AO & Steel Army Holiday Party – 12/9

sa-happy-holidays

Hey gang. It’s getting late in the year which means it’s time for the annual Pittsburgh American Outlaws and Steel Army joint holiday party! It’s been quite the year for both US soccer and the Riverhounds. Come on out and commiserate with both groups as we enjoy some holiday cheer.

This year the party will be moving to the pub at Highmark Stadium. As always we’ll have food, drink specials, and a few raffles. In addition we’ll have the MLS Cup final on the tv’s to yell at. Edit: Nevermind! Apparently MLS Cup is at 4 pm.

“Kick off” is at 7 pm. If you’re planning on coming out we’d appreciate it if you RSVP to one of our Facebook events so we can get a rough head count.

PIT +220

There isn’t too much that needs to be said. The good guys most likely need to rattle off three straight wins to put themselves in the playoffs. That starts today against the Sugar Free Red Bulls and then concludes at home against Rochester and Ottawa. They’ve had degrees of success against everyone not named Louisville, so to get it all started today is a very doable first step.

Two wins in two is technically a winning streak.

The Hounds look to keep the good times going as they host in-state opponent Lehigh Valley in another huge match. a win plus some favorable results around the league and the Hounds can find themselves above the playoff. Both sides will be missing key pieces and will have to adapt. An interesting 90 minutes are certainly in store.
