Sounding Off on Soccer Podcast: Winless, scoreless and hapless Riverhounds

The Pittsburgh Riverhounds were punished for their failure to convert a host of chances as they fell 2-0 to Orange County SC in their home opener, on Saturday night at Highmark Stadium.

It’s been a far from ideal start from the Riverhounds, who have been shut out in consecutive matches to begin the 2024 season.  It’s the first time the Hounds have been shut out in back-to-back contests since mid-2022.

PSN’s John’s Krysinsky is joined by Matthew Baldwin,  who was at Highmark Stadium on Saturday, as they look back at the match, and take a closer look at why the Hounds have come up short against what appears to be two of the tougher Western Conference clubs to start the season.
