The San Antonio Scorpions (NASL) will face the Austin Aztex (USL) in U.S. Open Cup Third Round play next Wednesday, May 27th, at Toyota Field in San Antonio, Texas. The Aztex defeated the Laredo Heat (PDL), 2-0, in Austin in the Second Round.
This will be the second ever meeting between the I-35 rivals and the second playing of the Hill Country Derby, which the Aztex lead 1-0. San Antonio will look to send the Aztex home with a loss this time though as Austin won the first meeting, 4-1. Look for San Antonio to play much better than the first game. They have a complete roster now that has been together for longer than a few weeks, which was not the case in the first game.
This game should be a good one. There is so much promise here for a true budding rivalry, and meeting in The Cup will only add to it. Both sides will want to advance, likely facing the Houston Dynamo of MLS. The Fourth Round draw is tonight at 6pm CST on 120 Sports.
This is the furthest that the Aztex have advanced to in the Cup (Third Round) while the Scorpions will be looking to advance to the Fourth Round, the furthest they've advanced to, for the third time in their history.
This Third Round game will take place on May 27th at Toyota Field in San Antonio at 7:30pm CST. #SASvATX
