Making the Playoffs; What Will it Take? (Hint: Lots of Help)

Bwcl8icIYAAG0nx.jpg large


No need to sugarcoat anything, it’s looking a little grim. However, there are three distinct, albeit rough, paths to the post-season. In order of probability, they are;



  • Pittsburgh wins at home against Arizona (Saturday)
  • Rochester lose at home against Wilmington (Sunday)
  • Charlotte fail to take all six points in their final two games (Monday at Impact Reserves, Saturday at home against Harrisburg)




  • Pittsburgh wins at home against Arizona (Saturday)
  • Wilmington lose at home against Orlando (Wednesday)
  • Wilmington lose at home against Dayton…

It’s getting real, now, isn’t it? Before it was half-delusional, blistery talk about this team peeling itself off the canvas and making a run at the top eight. A couple months ago we said these things as a defense mechanism to push away the horrible idea that all the waiting and planning in the off season would have been for nothing.  Then, a couple weeks ago, we started saying these things because.. well, it’s fun. “We’re gonna win…

Another weekend means another massive game, or two. Such is the life for the Riverhounds, and their ‘winless in 10′ to start the season. However, the hole they dig has been nearly escaped, with the three points available tonight, being some of the biggest of the season. The stakes are equally massive for the Eagles, who sit one point and two positions above Pittsburgh in the mass of teams vying for the final three playoff positions. A Pittsburgh win will take some pressure off of tomorrow’s match in Charleston,…

Last night got out of hand

Weekday Hangover: The Final Stretch

Three games to go and the Hounds are still in playoff contention. If you would’ve told us that back in July we would have thought you were crazy, but here we are. They’ve won 7 of their last 11, and 5 straight at home. If it wasn’t for a couple stumbles here and there we would be in a much more comfortable position going into the final three games.

The nice part about the wins is for the most part they are solid victories. 2-0, 2-0, 5-2, 3-1, 3-1. These are not score lines of a team just squeaking by. It took a long time, but we’re finally seeing flashes of the team we expected to see from the beginning. Kudos to Niko for finding a formula for success is all the mess.

The bad side is when they’ve stumbled it’s been right off a cliff. A 0-2 loss to OKC…
