After defeating Arizona United twice already this year in league play, the Colorado Springs Switchbacks knew the formula to beat them a third time.
Arizona United SC
Back in 2013, in their US Open Cup debut, FC Tucson upset an Arizona-based USL team. This year, Arizona United made sure history didn’t repeat itself.
Without a single player in the starting 11 older than 22, the USASA side from south of San Diego advanced to the third round of the annual American soccer club championship with a convincing 3-0 win over Arizona United SC of USL PRO Wednesday night at Scottsdale Stadium.
With the comeback victory, the Galaxy earned themselves a trip across the country to play the Carolina RailHawks for the third year in a row.
Arizona United SC has only been a USL PRO franchise for about two months. But it secured the most important win in club history to date on Wednesday night in the U.S. Open Cup third round, and earned the right to go after an even bigger victory in a few weeks.
