Hounds Part Ways With Manga, Elliott

Devaughn_Elliott_largeRiverhounds made some news official on Friday that midfielder Devaughn Elliott and forward John Manga are no longer with the team.
Elliott already shared this information a few weeks ago on Twitter, that he signed this past month with Antigua Guatemala Fútbol Club after finalizing his departure.

Manga, who starred at the University of Cincinnati, and didn’t get any playing time for the Hounds, is expected to pursue an opportunity in the Premier Development League (PDL) with recently announced partner Ocean City Nor’easters.

“With a crowded roster here in Pittsburgh, especially at midfield and in the attack, we felt the moves for Devaughn and John afforded both of them an opportunity to get back to competing in high level situations and embracing major roles in a different setting,” Dave Brandt, Riverhounds Head Coach, said.

John Krysinsky has covered soccer and other sports for many years for various publications and media outlets. He is also author of 'Miracle on the Mon' -- a book about the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC, which chronicles the club, particularly the early years of Highmark Stadium with the narrative leading up to and centered around a remarkable match that helped provide a spark for the franchise. John has covered sports for Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, DK Pittsburgh Sports, Pittsburgh Sports Report, has served as color commentator on Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC broadcasts, and worked with OPTA Stats and broadcast teams for US Open Cup and International Champions Cup matches held in the US. Krysinsky also served as the Head Men’s Soccer Coach at his alma mater, Point Park University, where he led the Pioneers to the first-ever winning seasons and playoff berths (1996-98); head coach of North Catholic boys (2007-08), associate head coach of Shady Side Academy boys (2009-2014).
