US OPEN CUP RECAP: Ugh

Another year, another disappointing Open Cup run. Last night the Hounds fell to FC Cincinnati 3-1, giving up the first goals at home and ultimately receiving their first loss of 2018. It was a frustrating result but not for the usual reason of falling to amateurs. With the way the season has started in league play we now expect results, even against opponents equal to or greater than us. Dangerous thoughts I know. Perhaps getting smacked down was something we needed to bring us back to earth. Small victory that it wasn’t in league play.

By all accounts leading up to Wednesday the Hounds were going to make the Open Cup the top priority. The next round would’ve been against an MLS team and the FO would love that PR boon. Yet the starting line up seemed to indicate otherwise. I’m sure Lilley…

After a two year hiatus, the Riverhounds find themselves back in the third round of the US Open Cup. For their efforts last week in Erie, the Hounds host the Fussyboys of Cincinnati. Cincy’s trip to tonight was a bit more arduous, needing the extra 30 minutes to fend of Detroit City. At stake tonight is a trip to the fourth round, an evening against an MLS side, and a coin toss to decide where that match would be held. Nothing big, right?

The last time the Hounds…



GAME 5 RECAP: Death, Taxes, Cincinnati Draws

For whatever reason we seem unable to win in Cincinnati, but by far this was the closest we’ve gotten.

It was a match where the Hounds looked their worst this season for a loooong stretch of the second half and yet they’re still coming home with a point. Ladies and gentlemen, I do believe we’re going to be contenders this year.

Cincinnati really feeds off their crowd. Sucking the life out of the place is just as important as getting shots on goal. Those silver spoon Ohio jagoffs don’t know how to deal with adversity. For a lot of the first half that’s just what the Hounds did. An early goal from Dover and smothering defense has the Hounds sitting pretty. Cincy started to get some pressure towards the end of the first but…

Welcome everyone to the match that isn’t a rivalry, despite the league and some other interested parties really wanting it to be so. The Hounds travel to Cincinnati to play a match in a college football stadium against that city’s local soccer club.

We wish we could write a bit more than that, but we’ve reached a point of Riverhounds coverage where there is already better…
