US Open Cup Third Round

The first round of the US Open Cup just completed, and with the second round coming up, the Wizards now have an idea of who they could play in the third round when they enter the competition. US Soccer has put out the draw for the third round, and the Wizards will play one of three teams. First off, the Wizards need to wait on the last first round game between NY Pancyprian Freedoms of the USASA and Real Maryland of USL2. The winner of that match goes on to play the Carolina Railhawks of USL1. That match, on June 24th will decide who plays the Wizards.

Should the higher seeded Railhawks win, the Wizards will travel to Cary, NC July 1 to take on the Railhawks. If the winner of NY Pancyprian Freedoms and Real Maryland advance, the Wizards will host the game at Blue Valley West High School the same date.

After looking at the map of the location of Blue Valley West, it struck me as funny that the potential site of the game is across the street from the land that could have become the Wizards stadium had the ballot issue back in November of 2006 passed.

BVW is also literally in the adjoining property to the church I pastor.
