FC Cincinnati stumble into 3-2 loss to Columbus Crew at Lower.com Field

COLUMBUS – Perhaps FC Cincinnati held faint hope of a postseason berth entering Lower.com Field until the Columbus Crew delivered what was almost surely a death knell to those hopes.

Playing in the first-ever "Hell is Real" derby match at the Crew's Lower.com Field, which opened this summer, FC Cincinnati took a 2-1 lead in the 75th minute only to surrender it and lose, 3-2. 

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 late-match capitulation. 

"The players are disappointed but you see that they don't do it on purpose. You see that the plan that we make is working very well because we're playing very well," FC Cincinnati head coach Jaap Stam said.
