Brandt Laments How Riverhounds "Take It Easy" in 2-1 Loss #PGHvOCB

After Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Orlando City B at Highmark Stadium, Riverhounds head coach Dave Brandt let it be known that he wasn’t happy with his team’s performance — particularly with their inability to add to a 1-0 lead, and play with more energy and fire for a full 90 minutes.

It was a harsh loss for the Hounds, as they took a tumble in the standings, dropping to 4-5-3 (15 points) going from being in a three-way tie for third down to ninth.

DK Pittsburgh Sports’ Lance Lysowski was at the game, and provided this report with Brandt’s post-game comments.



I’ll be back in Pittsburgh this week after a vacation, and will follow up with a mid-week feature.
The Hounds next game is Saturday, June 10 at Toronto FC II at 7 p.m.
