FC Cincinnati implemented a high-pressure defense, making it difficult for Orlando to build out of the back. In the 21st minute, Beckham Sunderland (Cincinnati, Ohio) was forced to make a save. The Cincinnati goalkeeper was able to get a finger on the ball and deflect the ball out of danger. Cincinnati responded two minutes later. Arquimides Ordonez (Fort Thomas, Ky.) served a cross to Josh Head (Owensboro, Ky.), but his header barely went wide of the goal. The Orange and Blue were finally able to break the deadlock in the 45th minute. Arnel Miscic (Cincinnati, Ohio) chipped the ball over Orlando’s defense. Ordonez collected the ball, dribbled past three Orlando players and placed the ball inside the far post.
