It was an impressive performance by the Hounds. From the opening seconds the Hounds attacked the Eagles and created chances. The Hounds out-shot Charlotte 11-6 in the first half but couldn't put one in the back of the net. The Eagles were awarded a penalty kick when keeper Phil Marfuggi took out Robert Ssejjemba, who was coming in alone on a breakaway. Dustin Swineheart scored to give the Eagles the lead. Still, the Hounds could not be broken!
Nine minutes into the second half, Jason Kutney roofed a shot over the Charlotte keeper and into the upper corner of the net, tying the game at one. Then, in the 65th Pittsburgh took the lead when Jean-Robbins Jerome scored on a free kick from 30 yards out. Jerome bent it like Beckham, over the Eagles wall and into the net.
The rest of the game featured end to end action that saw the Eagles get the equalizer. All things considered, the Hounds played probably their best game of the season and attacked from start to finish.
UP THE HOUNDS !!!
