Today is a unique day to say the least as we have not one, but two Open Cup matches with local interest to follow today. The Riverhounds are in the suburbs of the Windy City to face Chicago FC United while the Tartan Devils occupy Highmark Stadium to host Louisville City FC. Births into the third round, and maybe a little history, are on the line in matches all across the country this evening. Here’s are quick breakdown of the two ties you should be following…

What a time to face Harrisburg, no? The Riverhounds, coming off their most disappointing result of the season, are coming home to play one of the biggest matches of the season. It will be a test to show if the squad has the resilience to bounce back and put together a full 90 minutes against their in-state rivals at a time when three points would be critical. It’s hard to say that you have must-wins in the first 10 matches of the season, but it’s…

Last season sucked… hard. It started bad and then somehow got worse. We were angry, the club was miserable, and the fun times had disappeared. Going to games became something that more closely resembled work than pleasure. We never want to see it get that bad again. But, we’ve had a couple of months to…



Enemy Update: Richmond

rich

Opponent: Richmond Kickers

Record: 6-6-5 (8th in East, 24 pts)

The Hounds could not be going in to a more important stretch as they welcome Richmond to the Highmark Stadium at 7PM tonight. This rare Thursday evening match starts a quick three game home stand for Pittsburgh and would appear to be the last shot of salvaging this turd of a season.

We have played 15 league games and have fifteen left to play and things could not really look grimmer at the halfway point of the season. Though, if the boys can pull off a nice winning streak on this home stand, we could be in business and hanging around just outside the playoff positions.  It would give them 19 points and depending on other results would put them around 10th.  Not great, but not terrible considering how the season has gone.

This is much easier…
