  2. 2. Hounds @ 2013 Results: The Cannons swept the season series against the Hounds 2-0 but only by a combined three-goal margin. All-Time Series: The Hounds are 0-4 all-time against the Cannons. The Cannons are the only team the Hounds haven’t beaten in their two seasons in the MLL, getting outscored 67-45 in four games. Faceoffs have been one of the Hounds’ weakest areas, as Chris Eck has dominated the X, going 87-127 (68.5%) in the four matchups. The Cannons also lead in groundballs (134- 104) and shots on goal (126-101). In addition, Jordan Burke has a 54.5 save percentage against the Hounds. By comparison, Adam Ghitelman is only at 45.9% against the Cannons. While the Hounds have done a decent job of keeping Paul Rabil in check (averaging just 2.5 points per game), it has opened up players like Mike Stone, who has registered a combined 10 goals and one assist against Charlotte. Meanwhile, Matt Danowski has averaged 3.75 points per game against the Cannons. Things between the two teams have gotten chippy, with a combined 18 penalty minutes. However, the Cannons have fared far better (71.4%) on the man-up than the Hounds (14.3%). HOUNDS Last week the Hounds finally put together a complete game, registering double-digit goals and playing shut down defense to earn their first victory of 2014. The game was delayed by two hours due to severe thunderstorms in the area, but once the first faceoff took place the Hounds jumped out to a 4-0 lead over the Bayhawks. The Hounds never trailed in the game, and only allowed the Bayhawks to pull within two goals. Pierce Bassett stood tall in goal, making 10 saves on 17 shots. Meanwhile, Bayhawks goalie Kip Turner had 17 saves on 28 shots. Players To Watch Tim Fallon (FO) – After a rough first outing, the FOGO has put together two solid performances to move his win percentage up to 55%. Mason Poli (LSM) – The second-year player made an immediate impact in his MLL return, recording a 2- point goal, an assist and a groundball. Brett Schmidt (D) – He has become the leader at close defense, with an aggressive, won’t give up attitude. CANNONS The Cannons have dropped two straight games after opening the year with a 15-9 victory over the defending MLL Champion Bayhawks. However, both losses have been by just one goal, including last week’s overtime thriller against the Outlaws. The Cannons struggled at the X, going just 9-23. They also were only 1-6 on the powerplay, but killed off both of the Outlaws’ man-up opportunities. Jordan Burke had 16 saves on 26 shots, including five in the fourth quarter to help force the overtime period. Players To Watch Kevin Buchanon (A) – In three games, the MLL veteran has tallied 12 goals, three times the Cannons next highest scorer. Brodie Merrill (D) – The six-time defensive MVP joined the team in an offseason trade, and currently leads the team with 16 groundballs. Jack Rice (A) – The rookie has tallied four goals over his first three MLL games, including two last week against the Outlaws.

  9. 9. NOTEWORTHY – May 17, 2014 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 returned 16 players from the 2013 season. GOING STREAKING: Ryan Young enters Week 4 riding a 21-game streak of recording at least one point, dating back to Aug. 11, 2012 (including the postseason). MILESTONE MOMENTS: Hounds rookie Thomas DeNapoli scored his first-ever MLL goal in his debut against the Bayhawks last week. WHO LET THE DOGS OUT: With Loyola’s loss to Albany in the NCAA tournament last week, the Hounds were able to activate draftees Justin Ward and Pat Laconi. DINO-MYTE: Matt Danowski needs just six more goals to hit the 150 mark for his career (including the postseason). The attackman also is just eight assists away from reaching 100. POWER OUTAGE: The Hounds last week scored their first powerplay goals of the season, going 2-6 on man-up opportunities. However, their 20PP% ranks ahead of only the Rattlers at 12.5%. In addition, the Hounds have a league-worst 44.44PK%. TWO FOR YOU: The Cannons are the only MLL team yet to score a two-point goal. The Hounds last week tallied their first of the season. BIRTHDAY BOY: Ryan Young will celebrate his 25th birthday on the 22nd of this month.
