ORLANDO, Fla. -- Djiby Fall’s first-half goal gave the Orange and Blue a 1-1 draw on the road against Orlando City B Saturday night.

The tie makes FC Cincinnati undefeated in the past five matches.

Orlando's Jordan Schweitzer found the upper left corner, scoring for OCB in the second minute. But that didn’t deter Djiby. He had four shots, including three on goal in the first half. He tied the game in the 16th minute.

Djiby scored off an assist from Andrew Wiedeman, who drew Orlando’s keeper Earl Edwards Jr. out of the net and slipped the ball to Djiby to put away.

FC Cincinnati passed with 83 percent accuracy in the second half and out-shot Orlando 7-1 in the period.

Kadeem Dacres sparked an offensive strike in the 85th minute, and he was taken down by Da Silva, which set up a free kick. Da Silva was issued a card for the foul, and officials gave him a red card when he argued the decision. This gave FCC an advantage for the final three minutes of play, but they were unable to capitalize.

The Orange and Blue will take on the Tampa Bay Rowdies on the road at 8 p.m. Saturday.
