  • 2. Hounds @ 2013 Results: The Hounds and Launch (formerly the Nationals) split the series 1-1 All-Time Series: Both teams are 2-2 against one another Last year the Hounds and Nationals faced off twice, with each team winning its respective home game. Both contests came down to the wire, with the Nationals winning the Week 4 matchup 16-15 in overtime and the Hounds winning the Week 13 rematch 14-11. Over the course of two years and four games, the two teams are pretty evenly matched when it comes to their statistics. The Hounds hold a slight edge in goals (57-54) and shots on goal (115-107), while the Launch leads in groundballs (135-135) and faceoffs (64-119 or 53.8%). Launch attack Stephen Keogh has averaged 3 goals-per-game against the Hounds, however, he is questionable to play in the teams’ first matchup of 2014 due to NLL commitments. The Launch also may be without Kevin Crowley, the 2013 MLL MVP, Offensive Player of the Year and All-Star Game MVP. The Hounds, meanwhile, are once again likely to be missing starting goaltender Adam Ghitelman and faceoff specialist Geoff Snider. HOUNDS The Hounds last week found themselves on the wrong end of a 6-0 score after 15 minutes of play, a deficit that proved to be too big to come back from. The team made a goalie change to start the second quarter, but still fell 15-8 to the Machine. The Hounds started to click in the second, outscoring the Machine 4-1, but got outworked in the third and shut out again in the fourth. Scott Rodgers was a brick wall, finishing the night with 23 saves on 31 shots. The Hounds squandered many of the few possessions they actually had – Tim Fallon was 10-27 at the X – with sloppy passing and bad shot selection. In addition, the Machine went 3-4 on the powerplay while the Hounds were 0-2. Players To Watch Ryan Flanagan (D) – The third-year veteran paced the Hounds defense last week with six groundballs. Joe Cummings (A) – An offseason addition, he tallied two goals in his Hounds debut and became a go-to option on offense. Matt Danowski (A) – The Hounds’ leading scorer from a year ago, he was held to just one point in Week 1. LAUNCH The Launch made their MLL debut last week, with the core of the now defunct Hamilton Nationals roster still intact. Despite a 14-10 loss to the Outlaws, the Launch gave a valiant effort all the way to the end and showed a lot of promise as a new team. The Launch found themselves in an 11-1 hole at halftime, but came out and scored six unanswered goals in the third to put themselves back in the game. Unfortunately for the Launch, starting goalie Brett Queener took a bad shot and needed to be replaced halfway through the game by backup Adam Fullerton. Queener’s status for this week is still unknown. Players To Watch Casey Powell (A) – The legend shows no signs of slowing down, tallying three goals and three assists last week to carry the team. Josh Amidon (M) – The former Hound showed an offensive resurgence Week 1, scoring two goals (including one 2-pointer). Chris Mattes (FO) – Held his own at the X last week, going 12-26 against the always intimidating Anthony Kelly.

  • 9. NOTEWORTHY – May 3, 2014 THIRD TIME NOT A CHARM: The Hounds for the third straight year lost their season opener. In 2012 and 2013 the team opened at home against the Outlaws, and this year opened at home against the Machine. CORE FOUR: There currently are four players on the Hounds roster that have been with the team since its inception in 2012 – Matt Danowski, Adam Ghitelman, Ryan Flanagan and Brett Schmidt. However, the team has returned 16 players from the 2013 season. GOING STREAKING: Ryan Young enters Week 2 riding a 19-game streak of recording at least one point, dating back to Aug. 11, 2012 (including the postseason). DINO-MYTE: Matt Danowski needs just five more points in the regular season to hit the 250 mark for his career. He also is just 15 goals away from the 150 regular-season goal milestone. BIRTHDAY BOYS: Two Hounds celebrate their birthdays this week -- Michael McCormack (4/30) and Pat Byrnes (5/4).
