RailHawks to play for chance to play Chicago Fire

Posted by on Tue, Jun 16, 2009 at 4:30 PM

It's Round 2 of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup and the opponent is I-40 USL-2 rival Wilmington. To the winner the spoils: the opportunity to host the Chicago Fire on June 30.

The RailHawks' Tim Candon has the pregame report here. Although the RailHawks knocked off the Richmond Kickers 2-1 in Round 1 a week ago, they’ve been struggling. They haven't scored in the last 222 minutes of league play; however, they’ve got a way to go before the offensive futility matches the defensive excellence of earlier this season, when the clean sheet streak reached 416 minutes (including the non-league Richmond game).

Here's another forecast: the weather.

The RailHawks take the field tonight at WakeMed Soccer Park, Field 2. Kickoff is 7 p.m. We'll be there, provided that the paper has gone to press and I don't have to ride on my motorcycle in the rain.
