FC Cincinnati finished the regular season with their 4th consecutive clean sheet with a 1-0 win over Pittsburgh. They finished the year with 56 points which had they played in the Western Conference would have been enough points to have the 1st seed. Now they get set to host their first ever playoff game on Sunday when the Charleston Battery come back to town.
Brad, Bill, Yosief and I recap the 1-0 win in Pittsburgh. Sean Okoli scored his 16th goal which was tops in the USL this season. Congratulations Ugo on winning the Golden Boot!
We’ve been running our fan poll the past 2 weeks asking for YOUR player of the year. On this week’s episode we award Harrison Delbridge with that honor. He was gracious enough to visit with us to talk about his start in soccer. He also talked about being approached to come to FC Cincinnati and how much that excited him. Plus he compared the Timbers Army in Portland and The Bailey in Cincinnati, they’re very similar.
There was some other news surroundings other soccer leagues in this country that may have an effect on the future of USL. In this article by SI’s Brian Straus, the NASL is in for some troubling times ahead. You can also hear more discussion about it on the Inverted Triangle Podcast.
We look ahead to the first postseason game against the Charleston Battery, which funny enough, the first regular season USL match featured these exact two teams.
