One win away from date with DC

Barons play at DC United July 10 with win on Tuesday

Fans of the Ocean City Barons know that a win next Tuesday in the second round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup will earn them a match against one of the Major League Soccer teams. On Wednesday night, US Soccer announced that DC United would be that team.

On Tuesday, June 26 at Carey Stadium, if the Barons defeat the Harrisburg City Islanders, a professional team from the USL Second Division, they will advance to the third round to play against DC United at the Maryland Soccerplex in Germantown, MD. The game is scheduled for Tuesday, July 10 at 7:30 p.m.

If Harrisburg is able to pull off the win on Tuesday, they would host the four-time MLS champions.

Tickets for Tuesday’s Open Cup match can be purchased at the main gate for $6 and $4 for kids. For more information about the Ocean City Barons, visit the official website at www.ocbarons.com.
