Game 9 Recap: Rule of Thirds

Pittsburgh_Ottawa_Hertzog_Kerr
For the third match in a row the Hounds took care of business and came away with another three points. Three consecutive shutouts. +3 goal differential. Third place in the standings. I’d argue the Hounds haven’t even looked that good during this stretch of games- no style points for sure. However they do seem to have found a way to plug the leaky defense and bunkered down into playing the counter attack. All you need is that one wonder strike to seal the deal, and they’ve found it each game.

Well its finally here, the Ottawa vs. Pittsburgh matchup that everyone has been talking about, the Eastern Conference Finals….oh wait, what..whoops. Well as the Pens get ready to host Ottawa on Saturday, the Hounds will be heading north looking to make three wins on the spin as they face the Fury for the first time in the two teams history.

Ottawa joined the USL from the slowly dying NASL this season and are having a bit of a rough go in their first season in the league. The Fury are off to a 1-2-3 start, earning half their points on draws and getting their only victory at Richmond, a game in which they scored on the counter and held on for a 1-0 win despite being pressured constantly.

Ottawa is coming off three straight draws, two of them being scoreless, so they are…
