[U.S. OPEN CUP] For the second time in a week, USL PRO's Harrisburg City Islanders took an MLS team to overtime and for the second time prevailed in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Last week, they came back from 3-0 down after the first overtime period to tie the New England Revolution 3-3 and prevail on penalty kicks. This time, Harrisburg got overtime goals from Gambian Sainey Touray -- his second goal of the game -- and Zimbabwean Lucky Mkosana to defeat the MLS New York Red Bulls, 3-1, on Tuesday night in the fourth round.

The City Islanders beat the Red Bulls for the second time in the U.S. Open Cup and claimed its fifth MLS victim.

Harrisburg beat D.C. United, 1-0, in 2007, New England, 2-1, in 2009 and the Red Bulls, 1-0, in 2010.

The City Islanders will face MLS's Philadelphia Union, to which they are affiliated, in the quarterfinals on June 26 in Chester, Pa.

    Good job! I hope that this team has seen a good bit of enjoyment and attention in this moment in the sun. What a storyline last week versus the New England Revolution and now to top the Red Bulls too! (with a two goal margin) It is great to see David humbling Goliath. Philadelphia must be ready on the 26th; this Harrisburg team is doing a really good job. Thanks guys, for doing what the experts think just isn't possible to do.
