Miami United FC (NPSL) 2, Boca Raton FC (Fla.) 1
Miami United jumped ahead early when a ball over the top was flicked on into the path of Matías Menza who launched a first-time rocket from the top of the box that tucked inside the right post in the seventh minute. After going into the break with a 1-0 deficit, Boca Raton FC brought things level when Martini Bontempo expertly timed his near-post run on a free kick to flick home the equalizer in the 57th minute. The tying goal set up a rough-and-tumble end to the match, but Miami United FC’s Nacho Calcagno popped up with a dramatic 87th minute winner to push the home side to a Second Round home date against NASL side Jacksonville Armada FC.
