Battery invades the North and US Open Cup pairings announced

The Battery are on their way to New York City to take on FC New York Friday night.  This is the second match up between the two team with FCNY defeating the Battery at home 1-0.  It was the first Battery defeat at the Baud since 2009.

Depth of the team is always important on back-to-back matches and the return of Andrew Dykstra will be welcome.  Dane Kelly will be unavailable for Friday night's match due to his red card against Harrisburg.  There will be no live video of the match but you can listen in at 1340am or via the web linked at

 The Battery will then head to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to take on the City Islanders.  The City Islanders will be looking for revenge after the Battery came back to win the recent match 2-1.

 The match will be aired live on 

Also the US Open Cup draw was announced.  The Battery will face Regals F.C. from Houston, Texas in the first round at Blackbaud Stadium on June 14.  Look for more about Regals F.C. here next week.
