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.

After a late first-half Colorado goal, Kekuta Manneh leveled the score for FC Cincinnati in the 73rd minute. The stalemate lasted for less than a minute though, as Nicholas Mezquida scored in the 74th minute, and Diego Rubio added a final goal for the Rapids 9 minutes later. The loss is FC Cincinnati’s third consecutive and their tenth defeat in 15 matches.

Graphic: Connor Paquette

After 45 minutes of hard work and rough play, FC Cincinnati let New York Red Bulls escape from the Queen City with a 2-0 victory, sending the Orange & Blue to their eighth loss in their last ten games. While the team managed to hold an advantage in shots on target and kept possession largely 50/50, the second half was again a letdown. A turnover by Matthew Deplagne led to a swiped goal by Kaku in the 78th minute, and Omir Fernandez’s first MLS goal punctuated the loss in stoppage time.

While FCC’s roster was depleted from nine injuries and illnesses, the game featured the MLS debut of Nazmi Albadawi in the late stages of the game.

Orlando City SC roared back against FC Cincinnati after Darren Mattocks scored the opening goal in the 34th minute. Tesho Akindele scored two, Nani scored two, and Dom Dwyer added insult to injury by adding a fifth in the 82nd minute. The Orange & Blue drop their eighth game out of 13, and fall from 11th to the bottom spot in the Eastern Conference.

Additionally, Greg Garza left the match in the 7th minute with an apparently severe calf injury.

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.

A long-range effort from San Jose midfielder Nick Lima in the 22nd minute delivered the only goal of Saturday’s contest between FC Cincinnati and the Earthquakes.

The Orange & Blue played the match with a man advantage for over 40 minutes but could not score a goal. San Jose midfielder Cristian Espinoza was dismissed after being issued a second yellow card in the 51st minute.

Fanendo Adi started the match on the bench but played 11 minutes as a substitute. It was his first time suiting-up since March 17 in FC Cincinnati’s home opener. Frankie Amaya, recently recalled from his loan to Orange County SC, made his first MLS start on Saturday and played 67 minutes.

FC Cincinnati remains in 11th place in the Eastern Conference. They tread water above the New England Revolution who lost 6-1 to the Philadelphia Union on Saturday and have a -14 goal differential.

After a scoreless first half, the Philadelphia Union capitalized on their superior performance with goals by Kacper Przybylko and Fafa Picault. Without a heroic six-save performance by Spencer Richey, the score could have been much more lopsided. The Philadelphia Union move into first place in the Eastern Conference with Wednesday night’s victory.

Along with a fourth consecutive loss comes a slew of bad stats, specifically FC Cincinnati have not scored a goal in 431 minutes, and have not scored a goal from open play in 565 minutes.

FC Cincinnati remains in 11th place in the Eastern Conference after the loss. Their goal differential of -8 keeps them just ahead of the New England Revolution who are bottom of the East.

Alan Koch’s squad now heads west for a Saturday matchup against a resurgent San Jose Earthquakes. FC Cincinnati will look to end their free fall on the West Coast and avoid a fifth straight defeat.

A Connor Lade goal in the 38th minute was the difference in this contest at Red Bull Arena. FC Cincinnati improved their performance in the second half and hit the woodwork three times but could not find an equalizer.

“You cannot go anywhere in this league and not play and give everything for a full 90 minutes and expect to get anything out of the game,” said head coach Alan Koch. “The first 45 minutes was a challenge and we had a momentary lapse in concentration to allow the Red Bulls to score a goal. But I think Kendall’s spot on: the response in the second half was excellent. It was exactly what we needed and something we’ll have to build on. But we have to come out and play with a required intensity for a full 90 minutes.”
