What a time to face Harrisburg, no? The Riverhounds, coming off their most disappointing result of the season, are coming home to play one of the biggest matches of the season. It will be a test to show if the squad has the resilience to bounce back and put together a full 90 minutes against their in-state rivals at a time when three points would be critical. It’s hard to say that you have must-wins in the first 10 matches of the season, but it’s…



Game 6 Recap: Hhhmmm…

0512_the-thinker05-wide
I’m going to be upfront and say I didn’t watch this match, and I don’t expect to have the time to watch the replay. From the sounds of it the game was a soggy affair, and despite the final score the Hounds continued to play decent. So with that said I’m not going to comment on the match in particular. Instead I want to touch on some broader thoughts.

If you were to chart out my confidence and happiness this season it’s been on a downward trend since the opener. Six games in and the Hounds are sinking down the standings with a 1-3-2 record. 5 points in six games. While the team started better this year, at this point things aren’t looking that much different than the recent bad seasons. After six games played in 2014 and 2016 the Hounds…

Are the Pittsburgh Riverhounds a good team? It is a question no one may be able to answer yet. We’ve seen the good, the bad, and a little of the stuff in between, so we sit here on this fence about how realistically optimistic we should feel. With all that said, the Hounds’ opponent today, is bad. Richmond has one win against three losses. They’ve been kept off the score sheet in three of those matches, and have a single goal in…

The Hounds hit the road for the first time this season to take on the Charleston Battery. They look to bounce back from a frustrating loss last week against the a team having a hot start to the season. The Hounds will be without the service of Agbossoumonde as he serves his one game suspension from the red card last week. In the interim they have picked up Abubakar on loan from the Columbus Crew. Presumably he’ll be in the line up tonight helping…
