NASL league leaders Carolina RailHawks knocked out in-state rivals Carolina Dynamo 3-1 to earn a home clash with MLS Cup champion Los Angeles Galaxy – the side they defeated at the Third Round stage last season – at WakeMed Soccer Park on May 29.
“We are happy with the result and that we are through to the next round,” said RailHawks head coach Colin Clarke. “Advancing and hosting the LA Galaxy in the next round is a great occasion for the organization and for the supporters. It was a lot of fun last year and I expect to have another great match next Wednesday.”
The RailHawks got on the board through Ti Shipalane in the 26th minute, but 13 minutes later, Dynamo were level through Martinez.
Austen King headed home a cross from Austin da Luz to regin the lead for Carolina then Zach Schilawski put the result beyond doubt with a fine finish from the edge of the six-yard box. The RailHawks enjoyed the attacking advantage, outshooting the Dynamo 19 to 6.
