LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Louisville City advances past Indy Eleven 2-0 in their second round of the U.S. Open Cup, setting up a match with MLS's Chicago Fire.

The teams remained scoreless at the end of regulation, forcing extra time in Indianapolis. It wasn't until the 116th minute that Nate Polak found the back of the net from outside the box to give Louisville the lead.

With just a few minutes left in stoppage time, Sidney Rivera put Louisville up 2-0 off a rebound in the middle of the box.

Louisville City left a handful of key starters, including captain Matt Fondy, on the bench to start the match. However, Fondy was later brought on alongside Kadeem Dacres.

Louisville now advances to a match with the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park June 16 in the fourth round.
