PLAYOFFS BABY!

hype-train

The Hounds lost last night in a frustrating fashion. The game was such a mixed bag that ultimately didn’t really matter anyways since we were already locked into 3rd. After mulling it over all night I’m just going to saw screw it and focus on this coming weekend. IT’S PLAYOFF TIME! We’re back in the playoffs after a two year “break” and have our first home game in 14 years to boot. Let’s get this hype train rolling!

The one good thing about the loss is it’s given us probably the best match up for the first round of the playoffs. The trash from across the state are coming to town again. We’ve had Bethlehem’s number all season. There’s no reason to think we won’t again. We’ll have a full match preview up later in the week.

Our job right now is to…

Last night got out of hand

Weekday Hangover: The Final Stretch

Three games to go and the Hounds are still in playoff contention. If you would’ve told us that back in July we would have thought you were crazy, but here we are. They’ve won 7 of their last 11, and 5 straight at home. If it wasn’t for a couple stumbles here and there we would be in a much more comfortable position going into the final three games.

The nice part about the wins is for the most part they are solid victories. 2-0, 2-0, 5-2, 3-1, 3-1. These are not score lines of a team just squeaking by. It took a long time, but we’re finally seeing flashes of the team we expected to see from the beginning. Kudos to Niko for finding a formula for success is all the mess.

The bad side is when they’ve stumbled it’s been right off a cliff. A 0-2 loss to OKC…

Playoffs baby! While it would have been nice to be able to travel to see the game, going up against Orlando may be the best for the Hounds. Pittsburgh played some of their best games this season against Orlando with a 0-0 draw in the first match, and a 1-0 victory in the second. Both team’s defenses are to notch leading to tight defensive contests. We’ll probably see the same in this match as well since there hasn’t been much change to either sides D.

The big story…
