Watch Party Saturday

smokin-joes-upstairs-bar2

As if we didn’t have enough going on this week we have a watch party on Saturday. After tifo painting in the morning come join us at Smokin’ Joes in the South Side as we cheer on the Hounds in Charlotte. Game starts at 7, party starts at 6. The usual food and drink specials, including a free pint of the Golden Hound after each Hounds goal, still apply.

FAIR WARNING: We’ve been at capacity the last couple watch parties. If you’re not a fan of cramped spaces the watch party may not be for you. Also don’t expect to sit, there’s very little to begin with and it goes quick.

See yinz there!

GAME 29 RECAP: Wooooooooooooooo

Hounds-Indy.jpg

Woke up this morning feeling fine
I’ve got the Riverhounds on my mind
Lilley’s got the boys playing the way they should
Oh yeah!

It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t easy, but oh was it exciting. The Hounds put on a show Saturday night, taking down visiting Indy 3-2. Saturday’s victory keeps them in the hunt for second place (Louisville also won), but equally as important it’s one step closer to clinching a playoff spot.

Just like a couple weeks ago playing against Indy was a high scoring affair, but it took a half to get going. The first half didn’t leave a lot to get excited about. The Hounds controlled play pretty well and had more dangerous chances than Indy, but weren’t able to convert anything. The only thing really of note was seeing the distinct playing style of each side of the Hounds…

Saturday sure was a hell of a night. Admittedly I did a lot of nervous sipping of apple juice and maybe celebrated a draw a little too much (ain’t that a soccer-ism), so enough specifics to write a proper recap are three sheets to the wind. What’s left is a strong mental fist pump you get after passing a tough test. The Hounds did what was often done to them, salvaged a point in the dying moments of the match. Against a clearly playoff bound competitor to boot. Feels good man. It’s amazing the Hounds couldn’t get a couple more behind the Louisville keeper. Several goal line chances and more corners than you can count should’ve put another notch or two in the goals column. Since it all ended positive I chalk it up to it is what it is….



GAME 27 QUICK RECAP: BOOM!

Hounds-Bethlehem-Brett

That’s how you do it! That’s how yous top a skid. A crushing, dominating, run-up the score performance against some cross state jagoffs. What beautiful goals to boot. Greenspan showing off his new found heading skills, a grinder of a goal from Brett, Forbes picking the pocket of Bethlehem’s keeper on a tight angle shot, and finally a Lee – Dover connection that was smooth as silk. Insert that Vince McMahon gif here. It was great to see the offense explode against a tough team battling for a playoff spot. It’s exactly what the doctor ordered after the recent struggles. The midfield and defense continued to be strong and if it wasn’t for that soft penalty call the Hounds would be adding another shutout to the stat column. All in all a great Friday night under the lights.

We have a big match…
