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…

Now that Mr. Rogers’ Friendly Skies have taken to the air and crashed “gracefully” into the Allegheny, it’s time to get down to business. A shockingly bad Richmond Kickers come to town tonight for a must win game for the Hounds. The Hounds are only one point out of the playoffs, but as the season comes into it’s final stretch the margin of error is getting ever smaller. The team needs to stop treading water like they have over the last month and get some results. Richmond is the perfect opportunity. Not only are they a bottom of the table…



Game 6 Recap: Hhhmmm…

I’m going to be upfront and say I didn’t watch this match, and I don’t expect to have the time to watch the replay. From the sounds of it the game was a soggy affair, and despite the final score the Hounds continued to play decent. So with that said I’m not going to comment on the match in particular. Instead I want to touch on some broader thoughts.

If you were to chart out my confidence and happiness this season it’s been on a downward trend since the opener. Six games in and the Hounds are sinking down the standings with a 1-3-2 record. 5 points in six games. While the team started better this year, at this point things aren’t looking that much different than the recent bad seasons. After six games played in 2014 and 2016 the Hounds…
