With the season over and the final whistle sounded, it’s time to announce the results of our Player of the Year polls.

Steel Army Player of the Year – Kevin Kerr

If you were are the match on Saturday you already know this one. If you weren’t it should come as no surprise that team captain Kevin Kerr took home the trophy this year. Despite Kerr being a long time Riverhound this is the first time he’s been our Player of the Year. This season he was the anchor in the midfield with never ending grit and determination. Oh Captain my Captain! Congratulations to Kevin Kerr.

In addition to our overall Player of the Year we have individual position winners as well. We’d like to recognize the following players as our favorites in each area of the field.

Goalkeeper of the Year – Trey Mitchell…



Game 31 Recap: The Hits Keep Coming

Last week the Hounds went to New York and got knocked around by the Baby Bulls which ultimately ended our playoff chances. This week the Hounds came home and got knocked around by the Rhinos which ended up denying us the inaugural Old Guard Shield. Not a great couple weeks for the team. Not a great couple weeks for moral. At least I’m getting some mileage out of this stock photo.

Rochester is Rochester and for whatever reason they’ve had our number for years. There’s nothing really more for me to say. Disappointed silence is probably harsher than whatever I could come up with to write. Congratulations are in store for Charleston and to The Regiment for taking home the Old Guard Shield. It’s a fitting end to the first contest that the co-oldest club took home the hardware.

It’s not time to put…



News: Highmark Stadium Expanding

It’s been somewhat common knowledge since the beginning of the season that the Hounds would need to expand Highmark Stadium in the near future, if not this offseason, to meet USSF Division 2 standards. Well since the offseason is upon us it’s time to start making those plans. As reported by John K over at DKPittsburghSports.com General Manager Kevin Johnston has confirmed that once the season wraps up on the 14th the Hounds will get the ball rolling on adding seats to the stadium.

For those who may not be aware Division 2 standards require a team to play in stadiums with at least 5,000 seating capacity. I’ve seen some back and forth, but from what I understand this does not include standing room only. Seating being the key word. Highmark Stadium as it currently sits clocks in at…



Game 30 Recap: The Fat Lady Sings

Well that’s that. The Hounds went to New York and got rocked for a 2-0 loss. Coupled with an Orlando City B victory on Sunday and we’re now mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. It’s a tough pill to swallow after this roller coaster of a season. August went so well only to have everything come crashing down with an abysmal September. Definitely a lot of questions about how the hell everything went so belly up. But, that’s for another time. Playoffs may be done but the season isn’t. There’s still pride to play for. The Hounds are returning to Pittsburgh to close things out with a pair of home games. If you haven’t been paying attention this weekend is actually, and still, a big match. We have the opportunity to win the inaugural edition of the Old Guard Shield with a win…
