Yoann Damet is off to a flying start as FC Cincinnati’s interim manager. The fireworks started early when Allan Cruz ended the Orange & Blue’s goalless drought 7 minutes into the Saturday matinee at Nippert Stadium. FCC then doubled their lead in the second half courtesy of a cool finish by substitute Fatai Alashe. Montréal made matters interesting by grabbing a goal in the 75th minute, but FC Cincinnati held on for the win, ending a five-game string of losses.
