Miami FC survive scare to win 2-1 over Lynch's FC and advance in the U.S. Open Cup.

Miami FC was able to overcome a 1-0 deficit at half time and defeated Lynch's FC by scoring 2 goals in 1 minute.

Lynch's drew first blood at the 35th minute off of a penalty that left the crowd gathered at Tropical Park silent. As half time came and went things looked bleak for the Blues until a confusing play that looked like a penalty in favor of Miami FC led to the first goal by Paulo Araujo at the 64th minute.
As soon as the game restarted Miami FC went for the kill and not even a minute later Striker Diego Serna escaped his markers and made it 2-1, which proved to be the final score that takes the Blue's to the next stage of the U.S. Open Cup.
Now Miami FC will play against the Charleston Battery who defeated Atlanta FC by 2-0 in a game which saw Atlanta lose 3 players to red cards. More here
According to the U.S. Open Schedule Miami FC would play The Battery on Tuesday June 16 at 8 pm at Tropical Park which would be crazy, considering the Blue's will play at Vancouver this Friday June 12 and then play this Sunday June 14 against Austin here at Lockhart Stadium! To make things worse after their U.S. Open Cup game Miami FC plays June 18, 20 and 23rd! For more on the crazy nightmare schedule the Blue's will go on check out the Miami Ultras site.
In other Miami FC news Honduran national team and one time Miami Fusion player Saul Martinez was seen practicing with the Blues prior to the Lynch's FC game. Could this be another signing or is he just training with the team? Saul was last seen playing for Club Deportivo Marathon of Honduras.

It's time to bleed Blue South Florida fans and support Miami FC as they play against the Austin Aztex this Sunday June 14 at 6pm. Tailgate begins at 4pm.
Let's go Blues! Vamos Miami !
