2007 US Open Cup Results - First Round

The first round of the US Open Cup is all but done as 13 of the 14 games have been decided. The biggest surprise of all the matches happened in El Paso where the PDL's Patriots beat Miami FC of the USL First Division in penalty kicks. The only other PDL side to advance was the Ocean City Barons who topped USL Second Division side Crystal Palace Baltimore. For the USASA, their only success on the night came from Milwaukee Bavarians SC who edged out the Cincinnati Kings 1-0. It should be noted that all three of these upsets took place in the team’s home stadium.

There was almost a huge shock in Rochester as the Raging Rhinos eked out a 1-0 win against the PDL's Long Island Rough Riders.

In blow out news we look no further then Atlanta where the Silverbacks wrecked USASA side Azzurri of Dallas 10-0. It must have been paining for Azzurri to travel all that way and get slapped out so much.

The second round of play happens in two weeks on June 26 and there will be at least one match with a full on rivalry as the Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers will meet in a showdown for the Northwest.

The Lynch's Irish Pub-Charlotte Eagles game was postpone due to a canceled flight and will be played tonight at 7:30pm at UNC-Charlotte's TransAmerica Field.
Update: The Pub gave it all against the Eagles but they fell 2-0 in the end. Time for last call.
