FC Cincinnati crashes out of US Open Cup in 5-1 loss to New England Revolution

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — FC Cincinnati attempted a delicate balancing act by resting key players during one of the busiest stretches of the season while keeping its Lamar Hunt US Open Cup hopes alive.

On Wednesday, in the fourth round of the Open Cup, FCC faced New England Revolution. He spared his highly stressed players but consequently didn’t have the firepower to match New England, who won the game 5-1 at Gillette Stadium.

Reigning Major League Soccer Most Valuable Player Carlos Gil scored a hat-trick and Adam Buksa scored twice for the hosts, who scored five without reply after FCC went 1-0 up.

In the 12th minute, Alvaro Barreal scored his third goal of Cincinnati’s two-game Open Cup season, but the goal was the highlight of FC Cincinnati’s evening.
