[U.S. OPEN CUP] The Premier Development League's Ocean City Barons are the only amateur team still alive in the 2009 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup after they knocked off the Real Maryland Monarchs, 1-0, in overtime in Tuesday's second round. For their efforts, the Barons have a third-round date with defending champion D.C. United.

The Barons posted their second consecutive victory over a Maryland-based USL Second Division club thanks to a 108th-minute penalty kick by JT Noone.

They knocked out Crystal Palace Baltimore 3-0, a week earlier.

Five USL1 and two USL2 teams also advanced to the third round, entry point for MLS's eight representatives.

The game of the evening was a battle of North Carolina teams. USL2's Wilmington Hammerheads beat USL1's second-place Carolina RailHawks in a shootout after their game ended in a 3-3 tie.

The fourth goal of overtime was scored by visiting Wilmington's Kenny Bundy in the 120th minute.
