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…

If you look at the heat maps on the USL’s site Cincy spent a lot of the first half in their own end. Unfortunately even with the attack and several good chances (including the rare indirect free kick from the 6 yard box), the Hounds just couldn’t do anything with it. I’m sure quite a few of us left Saturday with 2016 PTSD after seeing them struggle to score. Goals aside, it was always going to be tough for the…

Last week was fun, wasn’t it? We had nearly perfect weather, six goals combined, an early front runner for goal of the year, and a Hounds team that looks like they…
