With the Quarterfinal Round of the 100th Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup quickly approaching next Wednesday, the Carolina RailHawks have learned the potential pairings for the Semifinal Round of the cup competition. A victory over Real Salt Lake would mean the RailHawks would host a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup match at WakeMed Soccer Park against the winner of FC Dallas and Portland Timbers, on Wednesday, August 7th.
The RailHawks have made a memorable run thus far in the competition, defeating the Carolina Dynamo of the Premier Development League and defeating two MLS sides. In the Third Round, the RailHawks defeated the LA Galaxy 2-0 in front of a club record 8,121 fans at WakeMed Soccer Park. In the following round it would take extra time, but the RailHawks prevailed 3-1 over Chivas USA.
In 2007, the RailHawks made a memorable run to the Semifinal Round of the U.S. Open Cup and will look to equal the previous run on June 26th with a victory over Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium. Details on where to watch the RailHawks Quarterfinal matchup will be announced in the following days.
Before traveling to Utah, the RailHawks will host Minnesota United in an important NASL match on Saturday, June 22nd at WakeMed Soccer Park at 7:00pm ET. The respective clubs currently sit in second and third place in the NASL Spring standings, with a victory being a step in the right direction heading into the final two weeks of the NASL Spring Season. Tickets for the June 22nd match can be purchased by calling the St. Lawrence Homes Box Office at (919) 459-8144 or by visiting www.CarolinaRailHawks.com.
