Athletics Draw Stars in Open Cup

Today was the draw for the first round of the US Open Cup this year. Local USASA club, the KC Athletics are the only local team that has qualified for this year's competition. The Athletics will begin their first trip into the US Open Cup on June 15th up at the National Sports Center in Blaine, MN against NSC Minnesota Stars. The Athletics will have their hands full with the USSF Division 2 side, especially on the road, but it should be a good test for the team. If he makes the trip, former Wizards goalkeeper, Boris Pardo, could have the chance to repeat his performance last year against the Minnesota Thunder. If they advance, the Athletics would take on either the Des Moines Menace or AC St. Louis. Good luck to the Athletics, I'll certainly be following the game (hopefully the Stars have it streamed online).
