Liquor Store Soccer Team Scores First Against D.C. United

Christos FC, an amateur Baltimore soccer team that never practices and is headquartered in a liquor store, is playing a fourth-round U.S. Open Cup match against D.C. United of MLS tonight. In the 23rd minute, Mamadou Kansaye scored on a free kick to give his club a 1-0 lead over the three-time Open Cup champs.

Kansaye, like many of Christos FC’s players, played soccer at UMBC. Here’s another view from the stands of the goal:


Julian Büscher scored in the 35th minute to tie it at one, and the score remained that way until halftime.

Update, 9:25 p.m.: Kansaye’s goal turned out to be the only one of the night for Christos FC. D.C. United scored three times in the second half and won, 4-1.
