Lamar Hunt US Open Cup Is Down To 16 Teams


The New York Cosmos were early to the “sweet sixteen” dance when they defeated the Red Bulls 3-0 last Saturday and punched their ticket to the round of sixteen in the US Open Cup. After Wednesday night’s action, the dance floor is now full and ready for action. The US Open Cup is now down to the final 16 teams ready to battle next Tuesday and Wednesday, June 24th and 25th in the fifth round of the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup.

The New York Cosmos learned of their opponent late Tuesday night when the Philadelphia Union (MLS) defeated the Harrisburg City Islanders (USL Pro) by the score of 3-1. The two teams would need overtime to decide their contest, but nevertheless Philadelphia managed to forge ahead in the 2nd half of the overtime periods. The Cosmos will have to travel to Philadelphia to play this match with the hopes of advancing to the quarterfinals in their first appearance ever in the US Open Cup.
