Recap: FC Cincinnati gets three and scores three against Ottawa Fury FC
FC Cincinnati got a huge three points against Ottawa Fury FC
FC Cincinnati electrified their over 20,000 fans in attendance. They scored three times before Ottawa finally got on the score board. To be fair, Ottawa Fury FC did not roll over and give up after being down 3-0. They actually ended the game with more possession and nine more shots than FCC.
But, at the end of the day, it isn't those stats that put the points on the table. The first two goals were by Danni Konig and Jimmy McLaughlin respectively, but they both had Tyler Polak involved. In the first goal he got the assist, and in the second goal, he got the hockey assist as it went from Konig to Jimmy, who sprinted half the field and drilled it past the goalie.
Here are those two goals that sent FCC's crowd wild.
After the intriguing halftime, FCC continued their scoring trend with a third goal by Sem de Wit. While it was a good goal, Ottawa's marking could have and should have been much better.
While some chippiness continued throughout the game, it seemed to stay kept under control, and the game went smoothly with FCC gaining a much needed three points. FCC does not have a game until September 2, and then they don't play after that until the 12th..@semdewitt4 notches his 1st goal of the season & gives @fccincinnati the 3-0 lead!#CINvOTT pic.twitter.com/antVxxtOv7— USL (@USL) August 24, 2017
These three points jumped FCC back into playoff contention. Sitting at 34 points, FCC moved into No. 6 on the table. The only downside is that FCC has played the most games of any team in the top 10 spots, so they still have ground to gain.
This was a great start for a desperate team heading into their break.
