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 3 Recap: Saving the Best for Last

Pittsburgh-Charleston_20170408

Mark it down. Week 3, the Hounds get their first win. And not just any win, but a win on a the road. And not just any road win, but a win against the Charleston Battery. I can’t remember the last time the Battery had a bad season, and if the stat I saw floating around Twitter is true, we haven’t beaten the Battery in over 5 years. By every measurement these were a big three points. Not to mention 3 points towards the Old Guard Shield!

It was interesting seeing the defensive formation the Hounds fell into when they lost the ball in the first half. After the change in possession the entire team retreated back to just behind the mid line and hunkered down, daring Charleston to try to get through. While they played deep, it kept them from…

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…
