Cannons Fall to Nationals; Hounds Top Machine to Even Record

The third quarter opened much like the first, as Matisz notched a quick tally and Chazz Woodson followed up with a goal of his own to cut the Hounds' lead to 9-5 less than two minutes in. The Hounds' Mason Poli then got a good look in transition and fired a shot that hit the back of the net but bounced out of the cage and was not originally ruled a goal. Coach Mike Cerino challenged the play, and after review the goal was called and the Hounds went back up by five. Danowski followed up with his second of the night to make it an 11-5 game with 7:56 remaining in the quarter. But the Machine cut the lead back down to three, closing the quarter with three straight goals from Jeff Ledwick, Logan Schuss and Kyle Hartzell.

The game stayed close in the final stanza. Lusby opened the scoring with his second of the night to put the Hounds back in front 12-8. Poillon followed up with his second of the night, but it would be the Hounds' final tally of the night. The Machine finished the game with back-to-back goals from Schuss to account for the 13-10 final.

The Hounds next week return to Charlotte for their final home game of the 2013 season. They will face the Hamilton Nationals (9-3) at American Legion Memorial Stadium at 7:00 pm ET on Saturday, Aug. 3. The Nationals are coming off a 17-12 win over the Cannons.
