yeah hopefully they can win a few and make it to round #4 where they get matched up against a MLS team. It would be good publicity for their expansion bid.

WHAT IS THE OPEN CUP?
The US Open Cup is the country’s longest running soccer competition, dating back to 1914 when Brooklyn Field Club won the first edition. Since then, the knockout competition has withstood the ever-changing landscape of American soccer, giving teams from all levels of the game a chance to compete for national glory.

Originally known as the National Challenge Cup, the competition catered to northern-based clubs in its early days, seeing teams like Bethlehem Steel and the New York Americans win multiple titles during the first half of the twentieth century.

Over time, western teams such as Maccabi Los Angeles began to find success in the competition as well. Maccabi and Bethlehem are the most successful Open Cup teams, each with five titles to their name.

Are you having any problems with the stream locking up. Mine locked up right before the first goal.

Looks like Phoenix Rising is sitting their stars for this game. I don't see Shaun Wright-Phillips or Omar Bravo out there.
