Game 7 Recap: Hounds Take Care of Business

sa-yyeeaahh

It was the Cincinnati game all over again, only this time the Hounds were the ones up a man for the second half and ultimately got the job done with a win. Points against Harrisburg in all the various competitions and cups always feels good. The weight of the last few lackluster outings has been lifted. The supporters are happy again.

Saturday was a good overall team performance by the Hounds. Sitting here a day later I’m having a tough time thinking of any one person who stood out above the rest. The offense was aggressive and had some great chances. I would’ve liked to see some more of Kerr’s and Hertzog’s shots in the back of the net, but with getting that W I can forgive them. For the most part the defense continued to look better and kept Harrisburg from being…



Game 6 Recap: Hhhmmm…

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.

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…
