play the Stanislaus United Turlock Express (Express) this weekend for the final
spot in the Lamar Hunt U.S Open Cup (U.S. Open Cup). The match will be played in
Richmond at Richmond High School Saturday April 28th, at 5:30 p.m.
The Ambassadors are coming off a tough three game stretch where they came away
with two losses and one tie. However, they remain unbeaten at home and will look
to build on that success this Saturday. The Ambassadors are also undefeated in
U.S. Open Cup qualification thus far. They are hoping to regain momentum in their
season as they look to qualify for the U.S. Open Cup.
The strong and consistent play of Javier Hill (Hill), Jordan Keyes (Keyes), and goalie
Doug Herrick (Herrick) has been vital on the road to qualification. Hill has been
the creative spark for the offense being the catalyst for goal scoring opportunities.
Keyes’ solid presence can be felt across the backline as he has filled at center back
and left back. Herrick has played a huge role whether it is making game changing
saves or organizing the team from the back.
The Express is the U.S. Club Soccer representative in the U.S. Open Cup. The
Ambassadors and the Express have never met before.
Please come support the Ambassadors this weekend. Richmond High School is
located at 1250 23rd Street in Richmond. Look for updates on the Ambassadors’
