FC Cincinnati versus Saint Louis FC.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY NINE! This evening FC Cincinnati played host to Saint Louis FC for the second time this season. The last time the two teams met at Nippert, Djiby put the ball in the back of the St. Louis net four times

We stopped at Mac’s Pizza Pub again before the match…

Such good stuff. Speaking of good stuff, they were giving away FC Cincinnati license plate frames before the match. We already have on one our car from last season…

But we got another one for as a backup…

And look who we saw walking to our seats…

O say can you see…

It was Pride Night as tonight’s FC Cincinnati match…

The closest thing I saw at tonight’s match was the rainbow corner flags but wouldn’t know I completely forgot to get a photo of them. By the way, did you happen to see the USMNT & USWNT pride jerseys? Those were pretty sweet. I wished FC|C would have done something special to their kit for tonight’s match to further celebrate pride…

Here we go…

GOAL! ANDREW WIEDEMAN! 1-0 FC CINCINNATI!

At the end of the first half, FC Cincinnati still had a 1-0 over Saint Louis FC…

SPRINKLES!

And the second half is underway…

Danni Konig came on for Djiby in the 64th minute…

And he scored almost immediately! DANNI KONIG! 2-0 FC CINCINNATI!

Four minutes of time added on…

 

AND THERE’S THE FULL-TIME WHISTLE! 2-0 FC CINCINNATI!

FC|C looked really good tonight. The best they’ve looked in quite some time…

WEDNESDAY…

It was just a perfect night for a soccer match. Absolutely beautiful night.

See you on Wednesday for the huge US Open Cup match against Chicago Fire. ESPN is going to be there. It’s going to be a soccer party in Cincy. And we’re all invited. We simply can’t wait! 😀⚽️❤️

FC Cincinnati’s 2017 Home Opener.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY ONE! Today was the home opener of FC Cincinnati’s 2017 USL season

FC Cincinnati started their season with three matches on the road. Out of those three matches, they picked up three points for a win but unfortunately picked up two losses. This evening FC|C looked to right the ship as they played host to first-place St. Louis FC. St. Louis had given up five goals in their first four matches of the season. On paper, it looked like a very tough matchup. But first things first, check out this sweet FC Cincy MG we saw on our way into Nippert…

Okay, onto Nippert…

The Bailey started to unfurl their tifo for today’s match…

We couldn’t quite make out what the bottom part said…

But the power stack was smoking and that was a really nice touch…

HERE WE GO…

In the 35th minute, Djiby Fall scored the first goal of the year at Nippert Stadium

Two minutes of time added on…

Just seconds before halftime, Djiby netted his second in the 45th+2 minute…

And at halftime, it was 2-0 FC Cincinnati…

SPRINKLES!

And in the 47th minute, Djiby completed his hat-trick…

St. Louis FC’s coach was all bent out of shape and all riled up about something and had to be restrained by the fourth official…

FC Cincy’s coach, Alan Kock didn’t take kindly to whatever was said and had to be held back as well…

Djiby, the man of the hour…

He wasn’t done, as he netted his fourth! DJIBY! Have yourself a game, young man! 

23, 144! Not only was today’s attendance a new USL home opener record, it was also the 10 largest North American soccer attendance of the weekend

And it was over 10,000 more people than the Columbus Crew drew for their Saturday MLS match against Toronto FC up the road at Mapfre Stadium up in Columbus.

All eye were on the man in the middle for the full-time whistle…

AND THERE IT IS, FULL-TIME! 4-0 FC CINCINNATI

WOW! Now that’s how you do a home opener. What an incredible match! Just a little bit of perspective… last season, Sean Okoli was only FC Cincy player with multiple goal games. He scored a brace (2), three times. Djiby Fall had 4 this evening! And he’s now reigning USL player of the week and the leading scorer in all of USL. FC Cincy’s next match is this Wednesday, April 19th as they welcome the Tampa Bay Rowdies to Nippert Stadium. See you there! 🙂

FC Cincinnati defeated St. Louis FC 2-1 in front of 17,415 at Nippert Stadium. Ugo Okoli netted both FC Cincy goals – one in the 84th minute and another on a penalty kick in second-half stoppage time. FC|C had the better run of play through the entire match and really deserved this win. It was a great game and terrific way to wind down a wonderful Labor Day weekend. 🙂
