RECAP: Man with the Golden Gloves. Hounds Win, 1-0.

Posted by Anonymous On 10:48 AM
Going into this game, it was clear it was going to be a defensive grudge-match between two teams that sacrifice prolific scoring for a strong back-line.

In the end, the Hounds edged Antigua Barracudas FC on Holy Thursday with solid goal-tending by Hunter (including a probably game-winning save on a penalty kick in the first half) and a header by Mike Seth, a third-year veteran defenseman for the Hounds and a local kid who graduated from Baldwin High School.

Considering the first half of the game on @UNATION was blacked-out, it would be extremely difficult to give a recap of the entire match.  A big thanks to Michael Harrold (@UTEAM_Michael) to getting the bug fixed on the live stream for the second half of the match.  Hopefully they and USL PRO have hammered out any glitches.

Instead of giving a full recap, here are some of the stats from the game:

Interesting notes:
  • Solid offensive effort by Michael Green coming in for Shin at halftime.  Exciting stuff moving forward.
  • Evans thrown out of the game.  Oh man.  That would have been something to see.
  • Huge shut-out by Hunter.  Without that save on the PK, momentum would have probably swung heavily back in Antigua's direction.
  • It's not reflected on the match report, but Agustino Nunez was everywhere last night.
Next game is on Easter Sunday, April 8th at 4:30 PM at Sir Vivian Cricket Stadium in Antigua.  Not sure if the game is going to be streamed live or not.
