Nashville SC finds late equalizer to draw regular-season champion Cincinnati

NASHVILLE – In the most exciting Nashville SC game of the year, the Boys in Gold drew already-clinched regular-season champions FC Cincinnati in the friendly confines of First Tennessee Park – the third draw of the season between these two sides (fourth, counting a preseason friendly).

Nashville scored early – Tucker Hume headed home an Alan Winn cross in the fifth minute – and then late – Boilu Akinyode opened his Nashville SC account with a left-footed blast from outside the box as second-half stoppage time approached – to set the tone, then escape with a result when FC Cincinnati’s high-powered attack controlled the middle portions of the contest. In the end, a 3-3 result was fair.

Nashville ended with just 33.7% possession, but launched five shots on-target to Cincinnati’s eight, and made three goals stand up with the defensive performance.

Stay tuned for more to come from this game.
