DC, KC Look to advance

DC United and the Kansas City Wizards both hope to get positive results on the road in order to advance to the CONCACAF Champions Cup semifinals over the next two nights.

DC takes a 2-1 aggregate lead into tonight's match (7:30pm on Fox Soccer Channel) in Kingston, Jamaica vs. Harbour View FC. United got goals from Alecko Eskandarian and Josh Gros in the victory at home on Mar 9th. A win or tie puts DC into a semifinal home-and-home series vs. Honduras' Olimpia or Mexico's Pumas, who drew 1-1 in the first leg.

KC has a much tougher assignment with a 0-0 aggregate score heading into tomorrow's 2nd leg at perennial Costa Rican Champion Saprissa in San Jose, CR. Wizards keeper Bo Oshoniyi kept Saprissa off the board in the home leg at Arrowhead stadium on the 9th. A victory puts the 2004 US Open Cup Champs into the semis vs. Guatemala's Municipal or Mexico's Monterrey. The Mexicans lead 2-1 after the first leg.
