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…



Game 25 Recap: Great Balls of Fire

Don’t look now but the Hounds are hot! On Saturday night the boys smacked down visiting Bethlehem for their third straight win and third straight multi-goal game. While we would prefer to not be on the outside looking in on the playoffs, the final stretch of games is exactly when you want your team to find their groove. And boy have they. We’re finally seeing the exciting multi-goal games that we saw at the beginning of the season; games that have been sorely missed. It’s not just exciting because of the recent results but exciting because the team is looking good. Despite the recent rash of season ending injuries in key players like Hollingsworth and both Mitchel and Broome, something has finally clicked in the locker room. We’re seeing confident play by the midfield and offense, and most importantly Hertzog found…



Game 21 Recap: The Hounds went down to Tampa

The Hounds went down to Tampa,
They were looking for a point to steal
They were in a bind, ’cause they’re way behind,
They were willing to make a deal
When they came across this young man
Dribbling on the field and shootin’ it hot
And Morrell jumped up on the player’s bench and said,
“Boys let me tell you what:
I guess you didn´t know it, but I’m a goal scorer too,
And if you’d care to take a dare,
I’ll make a bet with you
Now you play ok soccer, boys,
but give the Rowdies their due
I bet three points of gold against your souls
‘Cause I think we’re better than you”

The Hounds said, “We’re from Pittsburgh, and it might be reckless,
But we’ll take your bet, we’ll probably regret,
‘Cause we’re a bit of a mess”

Hounds, tie up your…



Game 20 Recap: Wait for it… the Hounds draw again

Another day another draw. This time though the Hounds were oh so close to actually getting three points. When they went down to Charleston earlier in the year the Hounds were the one to get a late goal to take the win. Last night Charleston returned the favor with a late one to take a draw.

I left this game with a lot of mixed feelings. It’s a disappointment for sure to not get three points at home, especially with the Hounds’ struggles this season. However after getting to see the team in person for the first time in three weeks it seems like they have turned a corner. Continuing from the Rochester game on Saturday the Hounds looked good and played much more attractive football. The offense had some good chances, the midfield was strong, and for the most part the…
