Game 20 Recap: Wait for it… the Hounds draw again

how-to-draw-a-dog13

Another day another draw. This time though the Hounds were oh so close to actually getting three points. When they went down to Charleston earlier in the year the Hounds were the one to get a late goal to take the win. Last night Charleston returned the favor with a late one to take a draw.

I left this game with a lot of mixed feelings. It’s a disappointment for sure to not get three points at home, especially with the Hounds’ struggles this season. However after getting to see the team in person for the first time in three weeks it seems like they have turned a corner. Continuing from the Rochester game on Saturday the Hounds looked good and played much more attractive football. The offense had some good chances, the midfield was strong, and for the most part the…

We’ve got an interesting midweek match on our hands here, Army. The Hounds, well adapt at the low scoring draw, host a top-of-the-table Battery that has lost two straight and holders of an away record that doesn’t read like anything you would expect from the best in the East. Are the Hounds catching Charleston at the right time, or have the Battery found an ideal opponent with which to right the ship?

For the Hounds, it appears to be a case of…



Game 19 Recap: Another Draw

goals

Three games, three draws. It’s been a real up and down road trip and yet the Hounds came away with the same result each time. I kind of don’t know what to make of it. They played a match they probably should’ve lost, a match they definitely should’ve won, and a match that was fairly even. You could shuffle the matches around like a shell game to figure out which one is which. All I know is while this stretch of games hasn’t been flashy, the results are keeping them hanging around the playoff hunt; which at the end of the day is what we want.

The Hounds went up to Rochester and came home with a point. Something that they don’t have a lot of history of, so on it’s own it’s a nice result. In the context of the season though it’s…

Another road game, another weird start time. Tonight the Hounds travel to upstate New York to take on the Rochester Rhinos for the first time this season. Both teams are playing pretty average this year with Rochester having a slight edge. They’re currently sitting 4 points ahead of the Hounds but have two games in hand. The Hounds have traditionally struggled in Rochester, and haven’t won there since 2014. To add to the challenge Rochester is 4-1-0 over the last 5 games at home. Pittsburgh on the other hand is draw city on the road lately. It’s not necessarily…
