Ownby Taking a Trip to Houston

Per the Dynamo’s site Ownby is heading back to Houston tonight to be available for their game on Wednesday. Fortunately for the Riverhounds he is expected to return after the Dynamo match which means he should still be available this weekend. Depending on how much he plays Wednesday night I imagine he will be a sub option instead of a starter. With Kerr back at full health and C’deBaca returning last weekend the Hounds midfield is once again fully stocked. While Evans does has options hopefully we’ll have one of our consistently strong players ready to go in what we see as a must win game this weekend.

RECAP: No Easter Candy, Hounds Draw 2-2

By @SAdyson

It felt like something exciting was supposed to happen — like we were supposed to go to the mall and meet the Easter Bunny — but got stuck with this horrific experience instead:

The Hounds came into this game needing three points, and it looked as though we were going to steal them at City Stadium. Evans shifted the team to a 3-5-2, and it seemed to catch the Kickers off-guard.

Then, ghosts of 2013 past came to haunt us — the team allowed 2 late goals to sneak out of the match with a 2-2 draw.

It’s safe to say this is not the start to the season that Tuffy & Jason envisioned when the team made a few splashes in the offseason to bring in more talent.

Same crap, different season. Start off slow, take until half-way through the season to…

This is an early-season gut check time for the Riverhounds. The squad have conceded seven goal in the past two weeks, with zero points to show for their effort. The team’s biggest offensive firepower is out with an injury and won’t be able to even come off the bench. Another one of last week’s goal scorers will be serving the first of his three game suspension. The team currently sits second from the bottom of this (still immature) table, and locals are starting to feel just a little bit restless….



INJURY UPDATE: Angulo, Flunder Out vs. Richmond

By @SAdyson

HOUNDS NEWS: Injury Report: Angulo & Flunder -lower extremity; day to day. Ineligible: John -3 games

— PghRiverhounds (@PghRiverhounds) April 18, 2014

With Angulo (and John) out, this opens up more minutes for JJ Johnson and Jhonny Arteaga at forward.

Losing Flunder at RB is killer right now. We wouldn’t be surprised if Evans shifts to a 3-5-2 — a formation that has been successful for the team during the late stages of games so far this season.
