Highlights: FC Cincinnati crushes Harrisburg City and moves into fourth in USL's East
After two weather delays, FC Cincinnati ended with a thrilling 3-0 victory over the ninth place Harrisburg City FC. FCC has now moved into fourth and is a point ahead of rival Louisville City FC.
Djiby Fall broke the scoring open with a goal in the 32' minute after a long weather delay earlier in the half. The goal was his 11th in USL play and 14th of the season.
After halftime, FCC continued to dominate the game. In the 70' minute, right before coach Koch decided to use his first sub, striker Danny Konig made his presence felt with a goal. Djiby was credited for the assist, his first of the year.DJIBY FALL WILL NOT BE DENIED! pic.twitter.com/DC7LbqxxZp— Bailey Banter (@BaileyBanterFC) July 23, 2017
Following Danny Konig's goal, both Jimmy McLaughlin and Kyle Greig came onto the scene. Greig's appearance was his first for FCC. McLaughlin came on for Wiedeman and Greig for Konig. After just about 40 minutes following the halftime break, the lightning was back and the game was delayed yet again.Konig's beauty of a goal that puts FCC up 2-0! pic.twitter.com/8lOPbXqNzS— Bailey Banter (@BaileyBanterFC) July 23, 2017
Then after the next rain delay in the 85', Jimmy McLaughlin got in on the scoring with this beauty!

Performances from players like Corbin Bone, Kenney Walker, and Josu along with another stellar game from the backline should not go unnoticed. This team has come together and peaked at the right time, and hopefully they can continue their success in order to host a USL playoff game.
The flow and poise that FCC showed throughout the game confirmed their preseason hype. FCC, who won their third straight USL game tonight, is now climbing the Eastern Conference latter and will hopefully continue their luck as they play La Liga opponent Valencia FC Monday night at 7:00 pm.
