2007 US Open Cup Quarterfinals are over and New England moves on

Harrisburg City Islanders (USL-2) 1-2 NE Revolution (MLS)
The US Open Cup quarterfinals are over and the New England Revolution have moved on to the semifinals for the first time in six years.

The Revs jumped out to a 2-goal lead by the quarter hour mark thanks to goals by Andy Dorman and Taylor Twellman, but the Islanders didn't surrender and in the 78' they got one back. However, they couldn't get past the Revs. Any hope of a last minute miracle was arrested in the 90' when Anthony Calvano got a straight red and was sent off.

New England will face Carolina in the semis while FC Dallas will take on Seattle.
