RICHMOND, Va. (CHARLOTTE SPORTS LIVE) – Charlotte FC dominated the Richmond Kickers 5-1 in the U.S. Open Cup Round of 32 Wednesday.

Richmond got in on the action just after the second half began. Moran Correa answered with one of his own in the 53rd minute, bringing the score to one-all.
That was the last time the match would be tied as FC showered a plethora of goals on the Kickers in the second half.
The squad saw goals by Reyna in the 54th and two by McKinzie Gaines in the 58th and 61st. Richmond could only watch as their U.S Open Cup hopes were squashed.
