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.

It’s been 10 days since the Hounds were last in action, including a four day break over last weekend. The batteries can be fully recharged and ready to tackle the second quarter of the season. In contrast, Ottawa played on Wednesday in the opening round of Canadian Championship against Edmonton and will, today, compete in their fifth match in 15 days. Will it be rest or repetition…
Well its finally here, the Ottawa vs. Pittsburgh matchup that everyone has been talking about, the Eastern Conference Finals….oh wait, what..whoops. Well as the Pens get ready to host Ottawa on Saturday, the Hounds will be heading north looking to make three wins on the spin as they face the Fury for the first time in the two teams history.
Ottawa joined the USL from the slowly dying NASL this season and are having a bit of a rough go in their first season in the league. The Fury are off to a 1-2-3 start, earning half their points on draws and getting their only victory at Richmond, a game in which they scored on the counter and held on for a 1-0 win despite being pressured constantly.
Ottawa is coming off three straight draws, two of them being scoreless, so they are…
Friends of the Riverhounds and Steel Army, the Tartan Devils, have won their first round match up in the US Open Cup and will be coming home for round two this coming Wednesday. The Devils will be taking on familiar Riverhounds opponent Louisville City FC. Coincidentally Louisville will be in town three short days later to play the Riverhounds on Saturday. That aside, since the Hounds will be away for their first match up in the tournament, it would be very negligent of us to not head down to Highmark Stadium and support the Tartan Devils. Cancel your plans on Wednesday. This is a call to arms to support Pittsburgh soccer. We want to give the Devils our full support as we watch them give Louisville their first of two losses at Highmark next week. Kickoff is at 7 pm. Ticket are…
