It was a beautiful night Staurday where 19,112 people showed up to watch FC Cincinnati take down Toronto FC II by a score of 2-1. The game didn’t start off well for the good guys when TFC2’s Raheem Edwards had an impressive personal effort putting the away team up 1-0 in the 4th minute. FCC came roaring back with a dominating second half display culminating in 2 goals in 2 minutes behind efforts from Harrison Delbridge and Eric Stevenson. With the win, FCC extends their unbeaten streak to 9 games in USL play.

This week, FC Cincinnati heads down stream to take on first place Louisville City FC in the 2nd match of the Dirty River Derby. They will look to exact revenge from their first match-up after it didn’t go FC Cincinnati’s way. The club suffered a 3-2 loss on April 16th after a first half hat trick by LCFC forward Chandler Hoffman.

TONIGHT- John Harkes Show– Join Coach John Harkes and special guest, owner Carl Lindner III at the Moerlein Lager House for a special announcement. Rumor has it that Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. is announcing a limited edition run of their FC Cincinnati inspired Blood Orange IPA. Don’t forget to send your questions into @Tommy_G and listen live on ESPN1530 at 6 p.m.

Copa America Watch Parties– FC Cincinnati announced 3 sites to watch the USMNT Copa America match against Lionel Messi and Argentina. For those attending the John Harkes Show at Moerlein Lager House, the bar will host the game with representatives from the club. Members of @AOCincy and @ThePrideCincy will be at Molly Malone’s while Die Innenstadt will be at Rhinehaus in OTR.

To spice things up a bit I suggest you try the game recommended by Alexi Lalas.
