Game 29 Recap: Dagger

It only took 8 minutes for things to come crashing down on Sunday afternoon. Maybe the early start time or the different day of the week caused the Hounds to come out flat. Whatever the reason, a pair of early defensive mistakes had the Hounds playing catch up for 80 minutes. Despite Hertzog’s continuing his recent good run of form, his valiant efforts proved all for naught with the Hounds ultimately falling 3-2.

For a while there the Hounds were getting hot at the right time of the season. Unfortunately they’ve really stumbled through September, going 0-2-2 thus far. The teams around them in the standings, including Bethlehem, have been fairing a little better. The Eastern Conference standings are finally starting to stretch out, and with that loss the Hounds now sit in 11th and are 3 points out of 8th (occupied…



2017 Player of the Year Polls are Live!

voteordie

It’s that time of the year again Army. It’s time to decide who will receive our Player of the Year award! Our Player of the Year isn’t a purely stats based award. This isn’t the Golden Boot. We don’t limit our decision solely to on the field performance (though I’m sure that does play a big part to some of us). It could be someone who takes more time than required after games to interact with fans. It could be someone who still puts in long hours at the Academy after a tough weekend. It could be someone who you see out on the field, in all types of weather, warming up alone well before anyone else. Our Player of the Year is someone we feel personifies the passion, dedication, and hard working attitude that defines Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh soccer.

*Seinfield image* Rochester! */Seinfield* The Rhinos are in town tonight to try to bore the Riverhounds to sleep. We’re not going to let that happen. Rochester is always a tough match up, but even though they’re currently sitting in 3rd they aren’t a scary team. A tough defense to crack sure, but that’s about it. They’re the mid 00’s New Jersey Devils. Frustrating games to play and watch but you gotta get past them if you want to be hang with the best. Last week was rough, obviously, but it’s old news. The Hounds have had a full week…



Tifo Painting 9/30 and 10/1

tifo_header

Hey Army. It’s that time again. Put some dirty clothes on and get your paint brushes out, it’s time to do some painting!

This season marks the 10th season the Steel Army has been supporting the Riverhounds. Because of that we want to end the season big by putting together the largest tifo we’ve ever done. I’m talking magnitudes larger than anything we’ve done before. As far as I’m aware this’ll be one of if not the largest the league’s ever seen to boot. It goes without saying WE NEED YOUR HELP. We’ve been able to get by the last couple with a small paint crew since they were simple. This one, not so much.

Join us on September 30th at 9 AM, or the following day October 1st also at 9 AM. We’ll be at Zach’s place again in Squirrel Hill. Steel…
