The Hounds are coming off their second 10-day break from action looking to right the ship following the insomnia curing match in Harrisburg. While Orlando, having played more recently, will be without one of the joint top goal scores who sits after having picked up his fifth caution on the season. Which side can overcome some shakeup to their starting XI and take all the points in an Eastern Conference race that is getting tight up and down the table? Seriously,…



Game 11 Recap: Wet Paint

Paint dries quickest when temperatures are around 70 degrees. Paint will spread more smoothly and absorb faster at this temperature than in the chilly cold or sweltering heat.

Game 10 Recap: Well Crud

Pittsburgh-Louisville0520_large

The Hound’s three game win and clean sheet streak came to an end on Saturday as they fell to Louisville 1-0. It’s a disappointing result to be sure. The match actually seemed pretty even to me and on paper when you have two teams next to each other in the standings playing similar style soccer with similar form of play during the match, I think a draw would’ve been a fairer result.

For the third match in a row the Hounds took care of business and came away with another three points. Three consecutive shutouts. +3 goal differential. Third place in the standings. I’d argue the Hounds haven’t even looked that good during this stretch of games- no style points for sure. However they do seem to have found a way to plug the leaky defense and bunkered down into playing the counter attack. All you need is that one wonder strike to seal the deal, and they’ve found it each game. Even though the last couple games haven’t been “big” win’s (Harrisburg aside), they’re important wins in showing the Hounds have turned a corner. Games like the last two against bad teams have been trap games in the past. Not so much this year. If you want to be taken seriously you…
