In a flurry of black, blue, and white, the Riverhounds bound through a stretch of home games at Chartiers Valley High School determined to fetch a top spot in the USL Pro standings. Through five games in 2012, forward Agustin Nunez sprints among the USL's top scorers with three points, and his early-season barrage of 12 shots is tied for the league lead. Midfielder Michael Green has also pitched in with a pair of points, and, on defense, goalkeeper Richard Gilstrap's smooth footwork makes him the ideal candidate to protect the net or plasma TVs during food fights at team parties.
Set for completion this summer, a new multisport complex in Station Square will soon provide the Riverhounds with a permanent home. No matter the location, 'Hounds backers can bark and howl for their club alongside AMO, the team mascot, as well as the Steel Army, an unabashed cheering section that turns each home game into a pep rally with their steadfast support and doo-wopped versions of potential team fight songs.
