CINCINNATI, Ohio (FOX19) - FC Cincinnati’s losing streak is over at six games and nearly two months.

FCC beat the Houston Dynamo 3-2 at Nippert Stadium for its first win in 56 days.

“Very happy for the guys,” said FCC interim head coach Yoann Damet. “It’s been a long time and they deserved the reward.”

Kekuta Manneh opened the scoring with a strike midway through the first half. Rashawn Dally doubled FC Cincinnati’s lead to 2-nil with a second goal in the opening half.

FC Cincinnati would build its lead to 3-nil when Victor Ulloa’s shot trickled through the legs of Houston’s goalie.

The Dynamo scored twice in the final 15 minutes, but could not equalize.
