Columbus Crew surge late, stun FC Cincinnati in 3-2 win at Field

COLUMBUS – Perhaps FC Cincinnati had faint hope of a postseason berth entering its match against the Columbus Crew until the Crew delivered what was almost surely a death knell to those hopes.

Playing in the first-ever "Hell is Real" derby match at the Columbus Crew's Field, which opened this summer, FC Cincinnati coughed up a 2-1 lead only to fall, 3-2. 

Going into halftime, Ronald Matarrita equalized for FCC after a Lucas Zelarayan free-kick installed a lead for the hosts, who entered the match having lost six consecutive matches. 

Second-half substitute Isaac Atanga put FC Cincinnati in line for its first win since June 26 with his 75th-minute counterattacking goal, but back-to-back goals by Columbus' Miguel Berry in the 81st and 83rd minutes condemned FCC to its latest capitulation.
