ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The Rochester Rhinos embark on another journey to recapture a trophy and some past glory.
On Wednesday, the United Soccer League club starts its Lamar Hunt/U.S. Open Cup journey by hosting FC Motown in a second-round match at Capelli Sport Stadium at 7 p.m. The game will be streamed online at ussoccer.com.
The Rhinos know something about the Open Cup as they are the last non-Major League Soccer side to win it, besting the Colorado Rapids in 1999.
An amateur team that performs in the Garden State Soccer League, FC Motown bested New York Copa FC (National Premier Soccer League) in extratime in the first round May 10.
Motown is coached by former Red Bull Sacir Hot and features Franklin Castellanos, who scored a goal and added an assist in a 4-2 Red Bulls win over Chelsea in an international friendly in 2015.
The Rhinos are 20-1-1 in Open Cup opening matches and 15-0-0 all-time against lower league opposition.
The winner will face the winner of lower-league sides GPS Omens (Mass.) and Boston City FC (NPSL) in the third round on May 31. If the Rhinos win, they will host the match at Capelli.
