Rapids over LA; to KC next

Kansas City’s US Open Cup opponent is now known.  Last night a largely reserve side for Colorado beat an LA team that had most of it’s starters.  Little used bench player Conor Casey scored in the 82nd minute to give Colorado the 1-0 win and a date with KC.

The play-in game will be June 4th at Shawnee Mission North High School. The winner of this game will join the winner of the Chicago-Columbus game on June 10th and the top 6 MLS teams from last year in the Third Round of the USOC.

KC has an international friendly this weekend in New Mexico.  I wonder if Coach Onalfo will use that game to help decide who will play in the game against Colorado.  It’s a good bet though that KC will use a mix of reserves and starters.   Real question is will too many reserves be used …

Wizards Reserves: Speaking of the reserves, they played the PDL Springfield Demize on Monday and won 7-0 with three players grabbing 2 goals each.
