Brandt unleashes on Hounds: ‘I don’t know if the guys can handle me’

Currently in a logjam in the USL’s Eastern Conference Standings (tied for 5th-9th spots with four other teams with 15 pts each) the Hounds travel to Toronto this weekend for a tilt with Toronto FC II on Saturday evening (7 p.m. kickoff).
