[U.S. OPEN CUP] The Sonoma County Sol of the NPSL and El Paso Patriots and Chicago Fire Premier of the PDL were the lowest ranked teams to win games on Tuesday in the first round of the 2009 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

All seven USL1 teams won their opening game on Tuesday. The Rochester Rhinos needed a 90th-minute goal from Taiwo Atieno to tie the USL2 last-place Pittsburgh Riverhounds, 1-1, and they went on to win the shootout.

In a battle of Massachusetts teams, USL2's Western Mass Pioneers edged the Emigrantes Das Ilhas, a team of Cape Verdean immigrants from the New England Luso American Soccer Association, 3-2, in overtime.

Two games -- Aegean Hawks FC/Real Maryland and Crystal Palace Baltimore/Ocean City Barons -- were postponed because of bad weather and rescheduled for Wednesday.

Play continues with eight second-round games next week. Following two rounds of play, the eight survivors will face the eight qualified Major League Soccer teams.
