Game 21 Recap: The Hounds went down to Tampa

drink

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…

Know Your Enemy Reloaded: Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay seems to be on the right track after a bit of a rough stretch where they went 0-3-4 in May and June, including a 2-0 loss in Pittsburgh in June. After losing to Charleston the week following the Hounds loss, the Rowdies have won 2 of 3 with impressive victories over Cincinnati and Charleston.

The Hounds had a bit of a disappointing against Charleston on Wednesday night and look to bounce back in Tampa. If they are come away with any points on Saturday the Hounds will have to do what few teams have done in Tampa this season.  The Rowdies are 7-1-2 at home this season with the loss coming to the Battery.

Tampa Bay is in 4th place in the East with 31 points, 5 behind first place Charleston and 7…



Game 15 Recap: Head Over Heels

romeo-parkes-flip

Even a couple a days after the fact I’m still buzzing about the Hounds win on Thursday. They came out against one of the best teams in the Eastern conference and just asserted their will for most of the match. It was a trap game where for once we were the trap. I don’t know if the roster shakeup is what did it or if Brandt really laid into them this week after the abysmal Louisville loss, but whatever it was it worked. This is the Hounds team we like to see.

Maybe saying they asserted themselves / were dominate isn’t the best way to describe it. If you look at the stats Tampa out possessed the Hounds by a wide margin, 63% to 37%, but they weren’t able to do anything with it. Half of their shots were from outside…
