2007 US Open Cup Quarterfinal results - FCD moves along, Colorado is humiliated

Three of the four quarterfinals are over and the news for the MLS is mixed as FC Dallas pulled out a win while Seattle destroyed Colorado in amazing fashion. In the lone USL vs. USL meeting, Carolina held out against Richmond to advance to the semifinals.

However, the collapse of Colorado has got to be the story of the night. Down three at halftime, they shifted to a three-man backline to increase their offense only to see things get even worse. With the way this club looked tonight added to their current MLS form, one has to wonder what it would take for Fernando Clavijo to get fired. Don't get me wrong, I like Clavijo but his club is heading backwards in a hurry and something needs to change.

FC Dallas was the only road team to win on the night meaning home sides are 27 for 35 in this year's open.

Richmond looked good through out their match with Carolina but the Railhawks just had a little more push in this one.

33 August 8, Harrisburg City Islanders (USL-2) at NE Revolution (MLS), Gilette Stadium; Foxborough, Mass., 7:30 pm ET
