The team upset the Wilmington Hammerheads on May 14 in a 3-1 win to advance to the third round.

“Our coaching staff and our players are seriously focused on this game,” said General Manager Sean McDaniel. “They know it is a herculean task, but they are committed to give it their all. We'd love for everyone who can to turn out on Wednesday and support our city and our club. Let's fill Finley.”
