Weekend Recap: Cheers

Hound’s can’t hold out. Lose 4-2

I really dragged my feet to write this post. Not because I’m angry at the loss, or sad, or some other negative emotion. In fact, after the clock hit 120, sitting at Piper’s with some friends, it didn’t take long for me feel pretty ok about the whole thing. I just don’t really have anything else to say at this point. Yeah they lost, and it sucks. I’m sure that bus ride home wasn’t too fun either. But the Hounds were the Hounds, for better or worse. They’ve struggled to hold on to leads and defend set pieces all year, and it did them in. They played their game. It just wasn’t good enough to move on.

At no point on Saturday did I feel like they gave up on it. Last season there were games where the team obviously checked out. Not this year….

Playoffs baby! After a rollercoaster of a season the Riverhounds are back in the post season where they belong. Last week might as well have been a playoff game with the do or die game in Harrisburg. The Hounds got the job done, and any post season nerves the team might have were left in Harrisburg. Because of some stumbles through out the season the Hounds championship run is going to be completely on the road. Fortunately for them a first round match up against New York Red Bulls II is probably the best they could’ve hoped for. Over…

No that is not a misprint. It’s an all nighter on the way home. Due to the Pope and driver restrictions for long trips our travel plans are going to be a little more stretched out than we initially expected. We had quite the impact on the team last week and they really really really want us in Red Bull Arena cheering them on. Good thing we’re all crazy people. It’s going to be…
