The entire season comes down to tonight’s US Open Cup clash. The Fire take on the Union in a do-or-die semifinal. Win, and the Fire book a place in the Final and have a chance to redeem what has been a terrible season. Lose, and we get to spend the next two months waiting for the sweet release of the offseason.
