Four Points, Nine to Go...

The only thing sweeter than Pioneers coach Leszek Wrona's buttery, bald head was watching Riverhounds winger Jeff Hughes carve up the asses' defense for 87 minutes on Sunday afternoon. In contrast to Friday night's debacle, the Hounds attacked from the opening whistle with Bill Brindley providing a spark in the midfield. It could have easily been two or three nil before center back Nathan Salsi converted an off-balance pass by Jerome in the closing seconds of the first half. Jerome buried two PKs in the second half. The Hounds had something like 17 shots vs only 3 by the Pioneers. It was as lopsided a win as I've seen in two seasons. Jerome had the big day statistically, but Hughes was clearly man of the match and weekend. On Friday night his last minute heroics evened up the score saving us from a total meltdown.

Hopefully this performance will give the lads the shot of confidence they're going to need to run the table from here on out. We've got three games at home and need all nine points plus a little help to make the playoffs.

I'd like to now toss a special shout out to Western Ass' middy Anthony Augustine...hey bitch, I hope that vagina injury you suffered heals up soon ;p
