The Valley will have a November to remember on the soccer field. Phoenix Rising FC is heading to Championship game in the USL Cup after knocking off Orange County 2-1 on Saturday night. With the victory, Rising FC advances to the Championship game against Louisville City this Thursday night.


Rising FC jumped out in the 2nd minute on a goal by Chris Cortez and never looked back. Didier Drogba made it 2-0 Rising in the 73rd minute. OC would cut the gap to 2-1 late, but Rising wouldn’t fold on the back line and they hang on to the victory.

Brad Cesmat will have much more on this story on Mondays show at 10am.
