Game 27 Recap: Butts

Perrella

Woof. Saturday sure didn’t go well. I thought it would be any explosive match, and technically I was corrected, just in the worst way possible. Louisville came to town and gave the Hounds a reality punch to the face. We may have been on a roll coming into the match, but we saw loud and clear the gulf between 10th and 1st.

The Hounds came out strong much like they did at Cincinnati. In the opening 10 minutes they were explosive and controlled play. All three of our scoring threats got a look at the net, but sadly nothing came of it. Once the clock hit 15, much like the previous week, Cinderella’s night was done and the Louisville show began. We’ve seen it a lot this season. When the Hounds can’t get that early goal they start to bunker and flounder…

The boys are back in town for what could be an explosive matchup against Eastern Conference leader Louisivlle. While the Hounds have been on a roll lately, Lousiville has been even better. 5-0-1 in their last 5 games with 14 GF and 4 GA. Louisville is on a quest to cement their spot at the top, and with two games in hand against the teams below them, they just might. On the Hounds side the boys just need to keep doing what they’re doing. The Hounds, still, sit one point below the playoff line and only 2 points out…



Enemy Update: Louisville City (1st in East)

louisville

The Riverhounds welcome Eastern Conference table topping Louisville City tomorrow night at Highmark Stadium with a chance to vault themselves as high as 6th in the East with a win.

Louisville really is coming in to Pittsburgh on fire, winning four of their last five with two of those wins being 5-0 thrashings of Cincy and Harrisburg and a win over Charleston.

The two teams have faced each other twice this season, Louisville winning both affairs. The 1-0 LCFC win in Pittsburgh in May ended the Hounds early season hot streak and the 3-0 thrashing in June in Louisville might have been one of the low points of the 2017 Riverhounds campaign, putting the cap on a five game winless stretch.

Louisville’s scoring is spread out amongst a group of eight players with at least three goals, with Luke Spencer leading the team with eight…



Game 26 Recap: Road Draw

pittsburgh-cincinnati

The Hounds continued their good run of form over the weekend by heading down to Cincinnati and snagging a point. No small feat considering Cincinnati has proved to be a tough place to play since coming into the league, and for us in particular they seem to have our number. The Hounds may still be looking for a win against Cincinnati, but they didn’t let them trip up our streak to the finish line.

The Hounds came out hungry to start the game and were rewarded with an early goal from Hertzog. The re-emergence of Hertzog continues to be the catalyst for the Hounds offense down the stretch. 4 goals in the last 3 games from him alone. I’m not sure if anyone else in the league is as hot has he is right now. Hertzog can’t stop, won’t stop. It’s the…
