Battery in final

Charleston Battery! In the US Open Cup final!

It's true. A USL-1 side will play in the USOC final, just the second time since 1996 that a non-MLS team has reached the final.

Charleston will play DC United, who beat New England 3-1, in the USOC final.

The Battery beat Seattle Sounders, who for the second consecutive year got bounced in the semifinals.
Charleston won 4-3 in PKs after the two USL-1 sides

DC should should have more players healthy by september, and i think they'll take it.

It's bad Seattle couldn't win the thing because that would set the Sounders up for a perfect start to their MLS incarnation with immediate CL qualification as a draw for top players and extra fans to get excited about.
