Riverhounds Night Out

Night-Out-2018-header

Hey Army!

If you haven’t been aware, over the last two seasons the Riverhounds have partnered with the Delta Foundation and other groups to host Night Out- an evening at Highmark Stadium in support of our local LGBTQ+ community. This year we’ve been asked if we wanted to join in on the party. We’ve always supported the LGBTQ+ members in our band of misfits, so it seemed like a no brainier to say heck yeah!

Join us in the supporters section on Friday May 11 when the Hounds take on Indy 11. If you don’t have tickets yet a great little package is available at the following link. For $25 you get a ticket to our section and 2 drink vouchers. Additionally 20% of what you pay will go to a donation to the Stonewall Sports.



GAME 3 RECAP: Canadian Bacon

Riverhounds-Toronto-20180407

While the weather felt like we were in Toronto, that’s about the only thing the Canadian side brought it Highmark Stadium. It was clear from the get go which side was the professional team and which side was he glorified academy squad. Glad to see the kids got permission from their parents to cross the border.

Boy does it feel good to run up a score. This is the 6th time in the last 93 regular season games we’ve eclipsed 4 goals in a match, so not something that happens very often. The last time we left a game with a +4 GD was, maybe unsurprisingly, against TFC 2 at home on 4/25/15. As was pointed out in a couple pre-game notes, the Hounds have never lost to TFC2, and it doesn’t seem like that’s going to change anytime soon.

Speaking of never losing,…

BMO Field – 2PM 

Highmark Stadium – 3PM

Tickets: $5 (U.S. currency) at the door gets you in. Another $10 gets you in amongst the more posh of supporters

Watch: The YouTubes

On the ‘watching’ note, the days of live on the The YouTubes is at an end. Live streaming of matches will now be on ESPN+ for $5 a month. Anyone who though the league was dumping money into broadcast quality so they could keep giving it away for free were sadly mistaken. This does not change the agreement with Pittsburgh CW. Those matches scheduled for local television will still be there.

GAME 2 RECAP: Nil Nil

2018-Opener-Tifo

Well, we’re not losing…

Once again the Hounds attacked looked really dangerous for stretches of the match. When it was on they were swarming he defense. Guys making overlapping runs, passes into open space, and deft touches when things were tight. I think I’ve seen more back passes in the last two weeks than I’ve seen in the last two years. Lilley’s system is way wider than we’ve seen in recent years which is really opening things up. Unfortunately this edge of your seat soccer doesn’t seem to last. We get it for about 15 of a 90 minute match. It was disappointing to see in the second half the attack slip back to the old low success long ball up to the striker and hope for the best. But even if the “good” attack phase is going to be short, it can…
