A trip to Louisville, Kentucky and a date with Louisville City FC is on the line tonight in Reading as Reading United hosts Philadelphia Lone Start in a first round match of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
Reading is coming off a successful trip to the league final last year and returns to the rebranded USL League Two with several Philadelphia Union Academy grads and returnees from last season. One key newcomer to the squad is Saint Joseph’s University winger Alvin Dahn, who starred with Philadelphia Lone Star in their NPSL campaign last summer.
Philadelphia Lone Star is back seeking entry into the second round for the first time after falling short at Ocean City Nor’easters two years ago in the club first ever Open Cup first round match.
