Match Recap: Toronto FC II vs. FC Cincinnati

The Young Reds closed out their 2017 USL Season with a wild 4-3 loss to FC Cincinnati.

TFC II jumped out to the early lead as Tsubasa Endoh finished off a loose ball in the box after Mitch Hildebrandt spiled a Ben Spencer header.

Shortly after Endoh doubled the Young Reds lead as he finished off a great ball from Spencer.

The visitors pulled one back just before the halftime whistle as Danni Konig rose up to head it home.

Cincinnati levelled the score just minutes into the second half as Kenney Walker fired a low rocket from outside the box past Mark Pais.

Shaan Hundal put the Reds back in front as he broke in and chipped an onrushing Hildebrandt. For Hundal, it was his fourth goal in as many games and the forward set a new career high with seven.

However, Cincinnati evened it up once again as they hit on a counterattack that was finished up by Djiby Fall.

With less than five minutes remaining the visitors took their first lead of the match as Justin Hoyte poked the ball past Pais. Cincinnati held off the Reds in the final minutes to secure the three points and move into 6th place in the East. 

The Young Reds finished the season with a 6-19-7 record. The match was also the final game at the Ontario Soccer Centre. As of next season, the Young Reds will be playing matches at a combination of BMO Field and Lamport Stadium. TFC II would like to thank the City of Vaughan and the OSC for being great hosts for our first three seasons. 

And a special thank you to the fans for all your tremendous support this season and we will see you in 2018!
