The Riverhounds lost both games over the weekend, ending their three game unbeaten streak. Despite the loses there were some positives that I'd like to elaborate on a bit. Chad Severs scored his first goal as a member of the club. Chad is a proven scorer in this league, tallying 34 times in four seasons split between Harrisburg and Rochester. We need him to find his form if we're to compete with the better clubs this season. The Hounds also singed play-maker Lee Kouadio, who made his debut this weekend. He's a 22 year old attacking player from the Ivory Coast who can play at both forward and midfield. Lee setup Severs goal in Friday's loss at Charlotte and should help our struggling offense. Lastly, rookie Jeremy Deighton scored his first professional goal vs Charleston.
Looking to settle the score, the Hounds host Charleston this Friday night at Chartiers Valley, 7pm kickoff. The Japan Association of Greater Pittsburgh will be on hand to honor the Hound's Shintaro Hirada. The Steel Army and the Riverhounds also welcome Jeff McIntyre and Erin O'Brien from Ruffneck scarves. Jeff will award the Steel Army Supporters 2009 Player of the Year Award on our behalf. The weather should be fantastic so come on out and support the boys!
Unleash the Hounds!
