After a rough road trip the Riverhounds returned home to battle out a 1-1 draw with the Richmond kickers. You always want to walk away with three points, but I’m really happy with this draw. I was concerned the team would still be shaky which, when playing one of the best teams in the league over the last few seasons, could go real bad real fast. Instead the Hounds fought hard and generally looked pretty good. For the first time in a while they didn’t make any glaring defensive mistakes this game. In fact Arena, Pasher, and even Dallman made some great plays through out the evening and really held down the back line. Richmond’s lone goal was due to the unfortunate timing of Arena…

Player News and Notes: International Callup and A New Signing

Thomopson to Join the Jamaican National Team for Copa America

Goalkeeper-Ryan-Thompson--007

I completely forgot Jamaica was in the Copa America this year. Fortunately for Ryan Thompson Jamaica didn’t forget about him. For the second time this year, and probably not the last, Thompson will be joining the Reggae Boyz to represent his country on the international stage. As always we’re extremely excited for Thompson and wish him all the luck in the world. The downside is he’s going to end up missing a lot of USL action. The Copa America runs from June 11th to July 4th. A month usually isn’t bad, but this year it leads right into the CONCACAF Gold Cup (July 7th – 26th). We’re expecting Thompson to be called up for that tournament as well. Even if Jamaica makes an early exit after the group stage of the…
