FC Cincinnati has earned seven of nine possible points in three road matches after earning just 12 points on the road all last year.
Cory Burke scored the opening goal in the 15th minute, deflecting Anthony Fontana’s shot from inside the box. That held up until Emery Welshman found Albadawi inside the box for his first USL goal in his first USL start.
To the handful of @fccincinnati fans that sang their hearts out today in the stadium on the road - I have nothing but respect! A very hard earned point on the road. This new group continues to fight for everything & gets better every week. #FCCincy Now we go home...
