The Harmarville Hurricanes Soccer Club were an amateur soccer club from Harmarville, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh, that twice won the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, known then as the National Challenge Cup, in 1952 and 1956. They also played in the Cup Final in 1953. The 1956 Final saw the Hurricanes win 3–2 on aggregate score after a comeback from a two-goal deficit; they lost the first leg on the road 1–0 and conceded the first goal in the return home leg.[3]
