Game 10 Recap: Well Crud

Pittsburgh-Louisville0520_large

The Hound’s three game win and clean sheet streak came to an end on Saturday as they fell to Louisville 1-0. It’s a disappointing result to be sure. The match actually seemed pretty even to me and on paper when you have two teams next to each other in the standings playing similar style soccer with similar form of play during the match, I think a draw would’ve been a fairer result. Unfortunately real life tends to have other plans.

The Hounds midfield continues to be the strongest side of the ball. They had pretty good possession throughout the match and there was some really good build up play. The same can be said of Louisville. The difference maker between the two teams, as you might expect when one team scores and the other doesn’t, was on the attacking side of the…



Know Your Enemy: Louisville City FC (3-3-1, 4th in East)

louisvilleThe Hounds return home this Saturday to host Louisville City FC coming off three straight wins in the league and an unfortunate loss in the US Open Cup. Let’s focus on the positive though; the boys are 3rd in the East and climbing up the table.

Pittsburgh fielded a somewhat reserve team in the loss to Chicago United FC on Wednesday, but brought in regulars throughout as subs. Wednesday night also a full 90 minutes for Romeo Parkes, who assisted Kay Banjo on the lone Hounds goal.

Louisville City have been in Pittsburgh since Wednesday, playing their second round US Open match at Highmark Stadium against the Tartan Devils, handing them a tough 9-0 romping. I unfortunately didn’t make it on Wednesday night as I had to work, but fair play to the support, I heard it was great despite the result.

In the league,…

A Call to Arms – Tartan Devils Edition

Army,

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…
