Foxes Look to Put an End to the Revolution in Georgia

With new head coach Stoner Tadlock at the helm, the Foxes will open the 2013 U.S. Open Cup on the road and against another tier-four opponent in the American Soccer Pyramid (tier-one being MLS, tier-two NASL, tier-three USL-Pro) for the first time after the USSSA’s Colorado Rovers fell to the Georgia Revolution on a penalty kick shootout following a 1-1 draw last Tuesday at Shea Stadium. Had the Rovers defeated the Revolution, the Foxes would have once again opened the first round at home.

Coach Tadlock, “RC Foxes look forward to competing in the US Open Cup, our opponent the GA Revolution will be a good test for us.”

Any amateur or professional team associated with the United States Soccer Federation is eligible to compete. The field for the 100th staging of the prestigious tournament is made up of teams from across the spectrum of professional and amateur soccer in the United States. The champion of the single-elimination tournament will earn one of four USSF slots in the CONCACAF Champions League.
