CFC Set to Face Professional Team in Third Round of the U.S. Open Cup
Chattanooga-(WDEF) The CFC are home Wednesday night as they face the Harrisburg City Islanders in the third round of the US Open Cup.
The winner of that match will face the Philadelphia Union of the MLS.
But the Islanders are also a pro team out of the United Soccer League.
The CFC are just amateurs.
Said head coach Bill Elliott-“They’re professionals. So there is a separation there. But we are a good amateur team, and on the day, with a couple of breaks, hopefully we can be in the thing.”
Said CFD defender Jake Young-“I definitely think we have the players and the squad to do the job tomorrow and get out there and maybe pull an upset out there. I believe we can. I know the squad believes we can.”
The match gets underway at 7:30pm on Wednesday at Finley Stadium.
