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.
