Match day updates

The Riverhounds are in Texas, this time they will face the RGVFC for the first time. Look for updates/highlights/reviews of matches to follow here.

67′ – A couple more subs to bring fresh legs and induce a late push for the hounds:

In: Dane Kelly, Dani Rovira

Out: Russell Cicerone, Jelani Peters

59′ – Forbes’ free kick from the right side (about 35 yards from goal) ends with Peters rebounding off one of them, but the ball goes over the crossbar.

55′ – A misunderstanding between Silva and Dossantos almost led to disastrous consequences for the transfer of the ball from the left flank. Dossantos clings to his chest (maybe it should have been Silva’s ball), but Silva collects the ball under the pressure of Adolfo Hernandez’s shot.

51′ – Angelo Kelly wins a free kick sent by Forbes to the near post, but RGV GK Garcia is off line and ahead of Cicerone.

46′ – When the second half begins, the Hounds sit on the bench. As expected, Alex Dixon comes on for Mark Ibarra. It looks like Deeks is getting in front of the attacking MFs and Kenardo Forbes is going deeper.


Hounds with 60% ball possession, generate a few more corners, make better use of width – but only two shots (both missed in frame, although Forbes’ chance was saved by defender) Another bad miss on RGV’s goal defense.

Hernandez scored a goal between Widt and Williams. Real careless protection. They need to close this space faster.

Look at the goal…


A long, spinning diagonal ball from the far right touchline ends up with Hernandez getting a one-off chance between a pair of Hounds defenders right at the edge of the penalty area.

Another diagonal ball leads to a goal. The hounds gave up.

27′ – “Hounds” dodged another bullet! Isidro Martinez hits the left post on a good shot through traffic.

14′ – The hounds go forward. Cicerone has a good break for Forbes, but his shot into the open net is parried by the RGVFC defender!

It was defender Erik Pimentel who saved him from the line for the RGV! A great move by Cicero to pull the guard down and set Forbes up for a hit.

11′ – Oh my God, Hounds passes the ball, but he was lucky to get away after being picked off by some good passes as RGV’s Adolfo Hernandez missed the ball completely over the bar. eleven’

8′ – Good energy from the Hounds jump tonight at the start of the game. And also high pressing, which seems to be a little frustrating for the RGV.

20:25 – new wrinkles in the Hounds, starting from XI …
