Louisville City FC was eliminated from Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup competition on Wednesday with a loss to Indy Eleven in Indianapolis. Louisville looked good early in the game, giving themselves lots of scoring chances and eventually taking a 1-0 lead in the first half. Chandler Hoffman took a pass from George Davis IV and fired it into the goal at the 21 minute mark.
Indy came back swinging in the 2nd half, though, when Omar Gordon equalized the match at the 58 minute mark. Eamon Zayed quickly followed that up 10 minutes later on an Indy fast break, as he scored their second and final goal of the game.
Louisville had some chances to come back, as several shots came close to finding the goal, but they just couldn’t quite get it done in the end. Louisville City coach James O’Connor expressed his disappointment after the game. “It’s disappointing to be knocked out of the cup competition because we wanted to go and have a good run in the competition,” O’Connor said.
Louisville is now free to focus on league play, as they look ahead to their next match in Orlando on June 5th.
