FC Cincinnati drew their second game of the season after taking a 1-0 lead at the half. It wasn't necessarily the game ending in a draw that sent the fans home upset, but it was the how. 

A deep through ball crossed from the left side of the field to the right, and as starting goalkeeper Spencer Richey came out to secure the ball, miscommucation between the one FC Cincinnati defender and the goalie allowed the ball to squeeze right by the two, right to the Sporting KC strike. 

Lesson learned. 

However, while that was a turning point in the game and ultimately cost the team two points, there were many other game-changing opporunities that the Orange and Blue failed to convert on. Combine all those, and you have a coach that left satified, yet not happy.

Per FC Cincinnati, Koch's postgame comments highlighted just how he viewed the club's 1-1 tie.
Koch understands this is one game. He understands this won't make or break the season.

That said, he also understands that, when the club is at home, they need to convert these opportunities. With a 1-0 lead ever since earlier in the first half due to a Darren Mattocks penality kick, FCC looked in control yet obviuosly didn't get the result they craved.

This one will sting.
