[SCOREBOARD] Three amateur teams -- the PDL's Michigan Bucks and Ventura County Fusion and USASA's Cal FC -- pulled upsets in the second round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. For all the action ...

Cal FC was the only one of three California amateur teams that had to travel to the East Coast and won, crushing USL PRO's Wilmington Hammerheads, 4-0.

The Bucks, a perennial PDL powerhouse, won at the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, 1-0, on 2011 PDL Defender of the Year Stew Givens' goal.

The third USL PRO team to fall was the Los Angeles Blues, who lost to the Fusion, 3-1, at Fullerton College. Frankie Lopez scored two goals, including the go-ahead goal in the 107th minute, to lead the Fusion to the overtime win.

The big individual performance came from Brian Shriver, who scored four goals for the NASL's Carolina RailHawks in their 6-0 win against the USASA's PSA Elite.

Defending USL PRO champion Orlando City had the most lopsided victory, a 7-0 win against the USASA's Kansas City Athletics. The NASL's Fort Lauderdale Strikers topped the PDL's Fresno Fuego 7-2, with Aly Hassan scoring three goals.

The other four NASL entrants won by shutouts.
