Miami FC 2 (NPSL) 4, Red Force FC (Fla.) 0
Miami FC 2 cruised to a 4-0 win against Red Force FC in Miami to advance to the Second Round of the 2018 U.S. Open Cup. Last year, as members of the NASL, Miami beat Atlanta United and Orlando SC of Major League Soccer (MLS) to reach the quarterfinals, and are surely hoping to have the same of success this time around. Miami opened its account in the 22nd minute as Tyler Ruthven crossed the ball into the box and Kris Tyrpak buried a header in the back of the net. Tyrpak would get his brace before the half with another header in the 45th minute. In the second half, Dyland Mares got the ball on a rebound in the 60th minute and sent a rocket past the goalkeeper. Finally, second half substitute Dario Suarez scored on a spectacular volley in the 87th minute for the final 4-0 score line. Next, it will be a Miami derby as Miami FC 2 face Miami United FC on May 16 at 7 p.m. ET at FIU Soccer Stadium in Miami, Fla.
