Carolina Challenge Cup: Kickoffs pushed up 30 minutes

Weather conditions have prompted officials to push the kickoff times for Saturday's Carolina Challenge Cup matches up by 30 minutes. The changes mean that the Houston Dynamo will face the Charleston Battery at 4:30 pm ET instead of 5 pm, while the Chicago Fire will take on the Vancouver Whitecaps at 6:45 pm ET instead of 7:15 pm.

Both matches will be streamed live at USLNation.com. Chicago can clinch the title with a draw or win against the Whitecaps, though both Vancouver and the Dynamo are in the running should the Fire falter.

Be sure to check back for more updates and recaps of the two games.
