Game 13 Recap: The Wheel Keeps Turning

Rochester-Pittsburgh-062016

In a shocking turn of events the Hounds played in Rochester in dry conditions and on a good field. In less shocking events the Hounds came home with another loss. Just when the Hounds get their feet back under them with a win, this season knocks them down again. It’s always a tough matchup against Rochester. Historically they have our number. Underneath my pessimism there was part of me that was thinking the Hounds could pull the upset. Rochester isn’t particularly strong this season and maybe the Hounds would start heading into the other direction after a nice home win. Sadly it wasn’t the case. I guess the bookies know what they’re doing when the opening line is +400.

Rochester are 1-3-2 in their last 6 games and recently lost their first home game since August 2014, falling to Louisville City last Saturday 1-0. In fact Rochester are winless in their last three home games, drawing to Bethlehem Steel and Charlotte before losing to LCFC.

So the seemingly impenetrable force that was Sahlen Stadium seems to be no more, a least for the moment. If ever there was a time for a win in Rochester and possibly a nice momentum builder for the rest of the season, it would be now. Christian Volesky leads the team with 5 goals and is…



Beyond the Game for Steel City

Pittsburgh is a growing city, with opportunities and chances not like anywhere else. If there’s one thing you should know about Pittsburgh, it’s a city of sports. In 2014, the city gave way for an amateur women’s soccer team which would be a part of the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL), called Steel City FC.

In the team’s first season, they finished with 6 wins, 2 loses and 1 tie which is no easy accomplishment. But it’s not the number of scores and wins that makes this team so unique; it’s what they do with the public and the community that makes this an awesome team and club.

Stephanie Harrison, the founder and Chairwoman of Steel City says there is still a lot to do. The team has moved divisions in the WPSL which makes for games against tougher teams. I asked Ms. Harrison…
