USOC17: THE CUP RUN WILL CONTINUE!

FC CINCINNATI’S EPIC US OPEN CUP RUN WILL CONTINUE!ย ๐Ÿ†

FC Cincinnati defeatedย Miami FC of the NASL 1-0 on the road in Miami withย a goal by Djiby, his fourth of this incredibly magical US Open Cup run. And with that,ย FC|C has made it to the semi-finals of the 2017 US Open Cup!

Per Orange & Blue Press, Djiby is the first player in the Modern Era to score four game-winning goals in the same US Open Cup tournament. At the end of the pitch, FC|C’s star goalkeeper Mitch Hildebrandt hasn’t allowed a goal in 469 minutes of US Open Cup play. Starting from the 11th minute of the 2016 USOC loss to Tampa Bay, Hildebrandt has not conceded a single goal, leaving him just 4 minutes shy of the modern-day record, held by Jon Conway. Conway had a 473 consecutive minutesย streak for San Jose between 2000 and 2001. And if you string Mitch’s streak together with Dallas Jayeโ€™s 120 minutes of clean-sheet play versusย AFC Cleveland in the second round, FC Cincy hasnโ€™t allowed a goal in a staggering 589 minutes of US Open Cup play, also a Modern Era record.ย Zero goals conceded in 589 minutes of play. WOW!

There are now just four teams left in the 2017ย US Open Cup: San Jose Earthquakes, Sporting Kansas City, New York Red Bulls and our FC Cincinnati…

In the 2017 USOC semi-final, FC|C will face New York Red Bulls. AT NIPPERT STADIUM.ย 

FC|C will host the Red Bulls after wins against AFC Cleveland, Louisville City FC, Columbus Crew, Chicago Fire and now Miami FC. With theirย win over Miami, FC Cincinnati became the first non-MLS side to reach the US Open Cup semi-finals since Richmond Kickers in 2011. And while a USL team has not made the USOC semi-finals since 2011, a USL squad has not hosted a semi-final draw since 2008, back when Charleston hosted and beat the then-USL Seattle Sounders.

Regardless of what happens against Red Bulls, it’s been such an epic USย Open Cup run. It’s been like the Energizer bunny, it just keeps going and going and going. Hopefully, they can keep it going again. We’ll see you at the 2017 US Open Cup semi-finals!

UPDATE: Djiby will miss the semi-final match for an accumulation of yellow cards.ย ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Have yourself a game, Scooter Gennett!

Scooter Gennett had four home runs including a grand slam, 10 RBIs and 17 total bases in tonight’sย game against the Cardinals. Have yourself a game, Scooter Gennett!
He became the first Red to ever hit 4 HRs in one game, and just the 17th player in MLB history. WOW!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ฏโšพ๏ธโค๏ธ
