Thompson_PK_Save_4_19

Oh this is a frustrating one. For the first time since the opener the Hounds put together a solid performance for most of the game. They had good possession, the defense didn’t get picked apart (mostly), and they had several great chances to put a ball in the back of the net. Thompson stood on his head again, making several great saves and proving to be possibly the best signing this off season. I don’t think the USL does saves of the week, but Thompson turning into a brick wall on the late game PK would surely take it. Unfortunately after his amazing stop the Hounds took their foot off the gas and…

The Riverhounds return home after last weekend’s draw in front of a loud and hostile crowd in Saint Louis. That was a city and fan base that had waited years for professional soccer to come back to them, and they let everyone know. Even with the Hounds conceding…



Weekend Recap: Ones Across the Board

The Hounds fight back to draw Saint Louis 1-1

Three games, three different outings by the Hounds. The first game was great. The second was bad. This past weekend we saw something in the middle. The Hounds came out strong and dominated the flow of the game in the first 15 minutes or so. Unfortunately they weren’t able to accomplish much, and after Saint Louis calmed down and got into their rhythm the Hounds found themselves on the defensive. There where for stretches where the Hounds looked really good, and other times they look rather mediocre to bad. This game was the type of game I think we may see a lot of this season. The thing that worries me the most coming out of the match is how easily Saint Louis was able to pick apart the Hounds back line with long balls. I lost track of the number of…
