FC Cincinnati versus Charlotte Independence.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY SEVEN! This evening FC Cincinnati was taking on Charlotte Independence in the battle for the Queen City Cup. Coming into today’s match up at Nippert Stadium, Charlotte Independence was sitting in near the bottom of the USL’s Eastern Conference in 12th place and our FC|C was residing in 7th place. It seemed like it would be a great place to pick up a much needed three points and start to climb up the table a bit…

We stopped at Mac’s Pizza Pub again before the match. When I went to the restroom,
I came back to find this photo on my phone…

Silly head. We headed over to Nippert…

Sam the Cincinnati’s Zoo’s Bald Eagle made an appearance at today’s match…

And we’re underway…

It was a beautiful evening for soccer…

Charlotte Independence was on the board first courtesy of a near post screamer…

And just the before half, FC|C’s former Arsenal defender, Justin Hoyte levelled the score at 1-1 with a beauty of a goal

And that was the score at the break…

SPRINKLES!!!

SOOOO EXCITED FOR THIS WEDNESDAY…

But first, FC Cincinnati still had some work to do here today…

Here we go…

21,115

DJIBY! Back from suspension was about to enter the match…

Three minutes of time added on…

But no one could break the deadlock, and the match ended 1-1

Not surprisingly, Justin Hoyte was the Man of the Match…

WEDNESDAY! 

After the match, there were postgame fireworks set to the music of Bunbury…

Eagerly awaiting the start of the fireworks…

At the start of the fireworks, I sat my Polaroid Cube on the wall next to us. This is the video I captured of the FC Cincinnati fireworks…

It was a pretty spectacular fireworks display. And speaking of fireworks, there are going to even more fireworks happening at Nippert Stadium this coming week as our FC Cincinnati welcomes an MLS squad into Nippert for the very first time. As mentioned, they will host the Columbus Crew on Wednesday in the fourth round of the 2017 US Open Cup. And then Saturday, FC|C hosts the USL Eastern Conference first-place side, Charleston Battery at Nippert as well. Talk about a couple of really big matches!
We’ll see you there!
