Preview: United will play in Northern Virginia for the first time in its history as it takes on the Richmond Kickers, who play in the USL Second Division -- the third rung on the American professional ladder. D.C. will likely lean more on reserves as it looks to move on to the quarterfinals in the tournament, where it would face the Harrisburg City Islanders, who defeated the New York Red Bulls, 1-0, Tuesday night. Richmond knocked United out of the U.S. Open Cup in this round in 2004 with a 2-1 victory.
