#PGHSOCCER SERIES (Video) – Hounds Opener

In our latest edition of #PGHSOCCER SERIES videos, we capture the action from the Riverhounds 2017 opener — a 3-3 draw against the defending USL Champs, NY Red Bulls II along with interviews with a few members of the Hounds supporters group, The Steel Army.


Again, credit to Nick Milliron for terrific video work and for producing our second in what we plan to be a series of videos covering the world’s most popular sport in the region.

Although we had some audio difficulties in the interview area due to a lot of people in the background talking, limiting interview soundbites we planned to show, it was great to catch up with some members of the Steel Army.prior to the game.
