If your name is Mauro, you score goals like that. Or something along those lines is what I said last night when Mauro Rosales scored the game-winner.

That is just how this league works at times, I thought SKC's defense looked pretty solid for the majority of the game but two chances given up allowed FCD to get the points.

Daaaang. Over 20k for a USL game is impressive no matter the location. Really cool though to see a new club like Cincy take the city by storm like that. It also didn't hurt being a rivalry game with Louisville. Either way, awesome stuff.
