The Open Cup game between the Harrisburg City Islanders and Reading United, while practically a Philadelphia Union prospects game, also happened to determine who moves on to face the Red Bulls in the tournament's third round next week.
Anyway, Reading United, a PDL side made up primarily of college players, pulled off the upset, 1-0 over the USL City Islanders.
Thankfully, the third round match-up is an order of magnitude less tricky than last year's. No trip to Central Pennsylvania. No Jock Jams soundtrack. No crappy field. Still, there probably will be horrible refs, but, hey, you can't have everything.
