Colorado Springs, CO - The Colorado Springs Switchbacks entered into the round of 32 for the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, going against New York City FC II and suffered defeat with a final score of 1-0.

With the Switchbacks heading to New York only a few days after a USL Championship regular season match, the battle was tough. The game started quickly with New York City FC II player Jonathan Jimenez, making his way inside the box, getting a goal in the 6'. Throughout the rest of the match, the Switchbacks kept applying pressure to get that equalizer and had three shots on target.

Tensions were running high with only a few minutes left of the match, and in the 89', Switchbacks player #18 Aidan Rocha received a double yellow card, turning into a red card, leaving the Switchbacks to 10 men for the remainder of the added stoppage time.

Even down a player, the black and blue overall played an impressive game. Throughout the full 90', the team had a total of 14 shots, held 52.7% possession, had five interceptions, and won 14 tackles. The Switchbacks look to Saturday, as they have another quick turnaround and head to Hartford with kickoff at 5:00 pm MT.

Mark your calendars for May 17th as the Switchbacks return to Weidner Field to battle Rhode Island FC for Armed Forces night!
