The pacy forward was at the heart of Philadelphia's attack as the home side thrashed Chicago Fire 3-0 to set up a meeting in the final with Houston Dynamo.

A stellar second half resulted in a three-goal outburst and a ticket to the 2018 U.S. Open Cup championship match for the Philadelphia Union who defeated four-time Open Cup champions Chicago Fire at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester.

The breakthrough came for the hosts through Cory Burke who capped off a neatly worked give-and-go between Bedoya and Borek Dockal, that Bedoya then chipped over the Fire back line to a wide-open Burke.

The hard-charging Burke doubled his side’s lead in the 77th minute, smashing home a brisk counter-attack that started all the way in the back with Blake.

And with five minutes remaining in the match, substitute C.J. Sapong put the finishing touches on the victory with a tap-in from inside the six-yard box after Fafa Picault carried the ball to the end line, drew out Sanchez and slotted a pass back right into the path of Sapong to cement the 3-0 win.
