Sparse Crowd Takes in Hounds Victory

Posted by espo On 10:59 AM

With the looming threat of thunderstorms, most fans didn't make it out to the Valley last evening as the Riverhounds hosted the Bermuda Hogges (pigs). The brave seven hundred who did make it to the game were rewarded with a passionate and defensively dominating win. It was the 3rd straight game where gaffer Gene Klein unleashed Niko Katic in the 4-5-1 system. He's playing a destroyer-type role in front of an already solid back four making it very difficult for opposing offenses to penetrate. The Hounds generated about a dozen decent scoring chances of their own as Jerome again spearheaded the attack. Wingers Jason Kutney and Tommy Gray, the Jersey Boys, were again dangerous on the wings. Had it not been for some near misses the game could have easily been four or five to nil in our favor. The lone Hounds' goal came off the head of high-flying fullback Eddie Hayden from a Justin Evans corner early in the 2nd half. It was more than enough as Waltman and the Riverhounds' defense repeatedly slammed the door on the pigs.

We host the Kickers this Sunday at 7:05. Join the Army around 3:30pm at the Radisson Greentree for drinks as we get the festivities started proper!
