FC Cincinnati was busy this past week with matches against the Tampa Bay Rowdies in the US Open Cup and the Richmond Kickers in league play. Unfortunately the Orange & Blue lost in Cup play but were able to get a point in their draw to Richmond. The result puts FCC in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference and keeps their unbeaten USL streak alive at 7 games. This week FC Cincinnati hosts bottom dwelling FC Montreal in a match that hopes to get the good guys back on the winning track.
