Down in Orlando tonight, the KC Athletics meet Orlando City SC at 6:30pm in their 2nd round US Open Cup match. The winner will make a trip to Livestrong Sporting Park to take on Sporting KC in the 3rd round on the 29th. The Athletics are the heavy underdog against the defending USL Pro champions, who are 3-0 in the year's young season. They'll be looking to pull off their second upset of the tournament after knocking off the Real Colorado Foxes in round 1.
The Athletics certainly have the support of the Cauldron, who has donated money to the Athletics to help them offset the cost of the trip to Orlando. If you want to help the cause, you can donate here.
While I'd love to see a Kansas City derby in round 3 of the tournament at Livestrong, my hopes unfortunately are not that high. Orlando is a very good side and it's going to be an extremely difficult task for the Athletics to pull it off.
