  1. Kept one eye on this game and another on the Pens. All things considered probably the best game of the season. The thing that amazes me about this league, and really the sport in general, is that this game could have just as easily been 2-1 to Phoenix. Takes a bit of luck to win.

    After Phoenix had a shot denied by the post, Angulo opened the scoring for the Hounds with a great run and a nice chip over the charging goal keeper. Really a nice display of skill, and really the first goal I can recall this year that wasn’t off of a cross.

    Angulo scored again in the second half with a nice header off of a cross. Phoenix scored towards the end of the game off of a corner. Really a weak goal for the Hounds to give up, poor defending all around.

    Overall I think the Hounds defense played pretty well once again, although they were dangerously close to giving Phoenix a couple of penalties, committing fouls just outside of the box. Speaking of penalties, the Hounds certainly earned one IMO in the 2nd half as someone (don’t recall who) was tripped up from behind in the box.

    The Hounds play again Tuesday night in a first round Open Cup game, basically the FA cup of the United States, against some amateur team from Chicago. I’ll be interested to see what the Hounds offense can do against a seemingly inferior team.
