Galaxy and Dynamo fall in Open Cup to USL clubs
by Paul Kennedy, July 11th, 2007 7AM

TAGS:  mls, us open cup, usl


We won't be seeing David Beckham in the U.S. Open Cup this year. The Richmond Kickers of the USL Second Division cleared room on the Los Angeles Galaxy's crowded summer-fall schedule, pulling off the biggest upset in their franchise history with a 1-0 win over the MLS club.

David Bulow scored the winning goal in the 31st minute.

The Charleston Battery eliminated the defending MLS champion Houston Dynamo, 1-0, in overtime on a rebound of a penalty kick by former MLS player Stephen Armstrong. It was the fourth win by the USL-1 team over an MLS team.

The New England Revolution beat the Rochester Raging Rhinos, the USL-1 co-leaders, 4-2 thanks to late goals by Taylor Twellman and Steve Ralston, the second goals by both players.

Jose Cancela and Herculez Gomez each had a goal and an assist as the Colorado Rapids moved into the quarterfinals with a 3-1 victory over the California Victory.
