Atlanta Silverbacks still alive in U.S. Open Cup

Atlanta, Ga -- The Atlanta Silverbacks continue the team's quest for the US Open Cup when they host Major League Soccer's Chicago Fire Wednesday night at Silverbacks Park.

In the last round, the Silverbacks went on the road and beat the Colorado Rapids 2-1. The fire beat the Columbus Crew 4-2 in extra time at home in Chicago.

Wednesday's matchup will be the Silverbacks' third straight against a MLS opponent, and so far they've been able to handle themselves, going 2-0 against two of the top three teams in the MLS Western Conference.
