[U.S. OPEN CUP] The Fresno Fuego Future and Mass Premier Soccer clinched the last remaining berths in the 68-team U.S. Open Cup, but the centennial edition also featured one last-minute change as the Kansas City Athletics withdrew and were replaced by Dearborn Stars in the USASA's Region II  when they forfeited rather than replaying their game on short notice in Chicago because the Stars' protest that the Kansas City field on which the Athletics had beaten the Stars was too narrow.

The 100th edition proper begins next Tuesday with two play-in games: Georgia Revolution (NPSL) vs. Colorado Rovers (USSSA) and FC Hasental (NPSL) vs. Fresno Fuego Future (US Club Soccer).

Tyler Reinhart scored two goals and added an assist as the Fuego Future -- which also has a team entered in the PDL -- clinched the US Club Soccer berth with a 5-1 victory over APJCC Los Gatos Storm on Saturday.

Mass Premier Soccer hammered Newtown Pride FC, 6-0, getting three goals in each half. Former Middlebury star Tyler MacNee led Mass Premier Soccer with two goals.

Region II upheld the Stars' protest after it was determined the field at Olathe North High School measured 62 yards wide -- three less than the minimum.
