GAME 12 RECAP: The Richmond Redemption

Andy-Rain

We’re back on track kids! Maybe. One step at a time. On Saturday night the Hounds went down toa soggy Richmond and picked up a much needed win to cap off a hella busy stretch of schedule before a nice two week break.

Most of the game was a slog. The soaked field killed any momentum the ball had on the ground, and in general play was slow and a bit meandering. From a statistical perspective the Hounds had a solid first half, managing 10! shots in the general vicinity of the goal. Only one of them was actually on target, and going into the second half it felt an awful lot like de ja vu from Wednesday game. Chances a plenty but nothing to show for it. You could hear waves of groans across Twitter as each shot or header…

Coming off the worst eight day stretch of the seasons, the Hounds will look to get the ship back on track as they travel down to City Stadium to face the Kickers. It isn’t that the season has gone bad, but more that the team is in the middle of a hiccup that everyone would prefer to see go away quickly, instead of allowing it to linger…



GAME 11 RECAP: Too Little Too Late

Well, it was bound to happen eventually and the last few games made it feel like it was coming sooner rather than later. The odds of going undefeated in a 34 game season was astronomical. Even Rochester, when Lilley won it all, eventually lost one. I think it’s safe to say though that we all hoped it wouldn’t come like this. I’d take a hard fought 2-1 loss on the road, but last night? Another frustrating offensive performance after a string of frustrating offensive performances? Ahh darkness, our old friend.

Just like the Harrisburg game, taken in isolation this game is kind of whatever. For over two thirds of the match it was fairly even with both teams trading chances. One sloppy mistake did us in, but that was it. Nashville didn’t light us up or anything. The offensive misses are frustrating…
