In its Round of 32 encounter with the Richmond Kickers (USL League One), Yordy Reyna scored the go-ahead goal and set up three others and McKinze Gaines tallied twice in the second half to pace Charlotte FC at City Stadium in Richmond, Va.
The visitors drew first blood in the 34th minute. Danny Rios’ header was denied by goalkeeper Akira Fitzgerald with a two-handed save as the ball went to Reyna. The Peruvian fed an unmarked Rios, who tapped the ball home from point-blank range. The hosts equalized in the 53rd minute as Zacarias Moran drilled a shot from the top of the box that deflected off a defender and past CFC keeper George Marks.
Only a minute later, however, Reyna lifted Charlotte into the lead on a scoring sequence that was started with an interception in the attacking third. Christian Ortiz found Reyna, who beat Fitzgerald from four yards on the left side. Reyna turned playmaker, feeding Gaines from the left wing for a 3-1 advantage in the 58th and again for a 61st-minute score. Andre Shinyashiki closed out the scoring in the 86th minute.
