Smyth Earns HM PDL Team of the Week

The Premier Development League named their third Team of the Week for this year and CDL FC forward Austin Smythe (Cincinnati, OH/Univ. of Cincinnati) earned Honorable Mention.  Smythe leads the team in goals, shots and has started all four matches in 2016.

He played 90 minutes in the Lions mid-week home opener and scored both goals in the 2-0 win.  His aggressive style and constant movement have created defensive match-up issues all year.

“It is nice to be recognized individually, but this is really a team award,” shared Smythe when he heard of the honor. “Our team is young and we are working so hard in training and giving our best effort in matches.  Coach Nicholl is pushing us to reach our potential and we are ready to accomplish so much more.”

The Cincinnati Dutch Lions will travel to Canada for two matches this weekend and then return home next week to play the Dayton Dutch Lions on Wednesday, 6/8 at the Mason Multi Purpose Field.  The match is an afternoon kick off at 3:00pm.

Tickets for the match are available in advance at Tickets will be available at the gate for $8 Adults and $5 Youth (12 and under). Children 5 and under are always free to Lions home games. For discounted group rates of 15 or more, please contact Ric Campbell at 937-902-9414.
