New York City FC 5 – 2 FC Cincinnati

Graphic: Connor Paquette

It was all New York City FC on Thursday in FC Cincinnati’s last match before the CONCACAF Gold Cup break. The hosts were up three goals by the 29th minute and went into cruise control thereafter. The Orange & Blue got on the board near the end of the first half courtesy of an Héber own goal. The hosts then added two more goals in the second half and yet another own goal. Maxi Moralez was a man possessed for NYCFC, tallying three assists and a goal on the night.

FC Cincinnati remains in the cellar of the Eastern Conference with the result, five points adrift from then next closest team. New York City FC remains in sixth despite the win, now with 25 points total.
