Game 30 Recap: The Fat Lady Sings

Well that’s that. The Hounds went to New York and got rocked for a 2-0 loss. Coupled with an Orlando City B victory on Sunday and we’re now mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. It’s a tough pill to swallow after this roller coaster of a season. August went so well only to have everything come crashing down with an abysmal September. Definitely a lot of questions about how the hell everything went so belly up. But, that’s for another time. Playoffs may be done but the season isn’t. There’s still pride to play for. The Hounds are returning to Pittsburgh to close things out with a pair of home games. If you haven’t been paying attention this weekend is actually, and still, a big match. We have the opportunity to win the inaugural edition of the Old Guard Shield with a win…

There isn’t too much that needs to be said. The good guys most likely need to rattle off three straight wins to put themselves in the playoffs. That starts today against the Sugar Free Red Bulls and then concludes at home against Rochester and Ottawa. They’ve had degrees of success against everyone not named Louisville, so to get it all started today is a very doable first step.

Game 1 Recap: Goals Goals Goals

In Saturday’s post when I talked about wanting the team to be competitive this match was exactly what I had in mind. Three times the Hounds found themselves down by a goal, and three times they came back to tie it up. At no point either did those tying goals seem like flukes or a stroke or luck. The Hounds looked very confident and very determined through out the match. They played with a swagger rarely seen last year. And Hertzog… we’ve never seen him play with that much hunger. He looked like he could be a force this year as long as he stays healthy. All that said things weren’t perfect on Saturday. The defense is still shaky which I can only hope is due to that side of the ball coming together pretty late in the preseason. There was also…

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…
