[U.S. OPEN CUP REWIND: Third Round] Orlando City and the Charleston Battery showed why they are the top two teams in USL PRO, knocking off MLS clubs Colorado and San Jose, respectively, in third-round play in the centennial edition of the U.S. Open Cup.

Forward Dom Dwyer, who has already tied the USL PRO single-season scoring record with 13 goals in 11 games, notched two goals in the second half to lead first-place Orlando City to its first-ever win over an MLS club in Open Cup play.

“I think just before and during the second half we were far and away the better team,” said Orlando City coach Adrian Heath. “I thought we were worthy winners and it would have been a travesty if we didn’t take home the win.”

Bryan Burkeput Orlando on the board early with a goal in the 4th minute, but Colorado quickly responded when midfielder Kamani Hilljumped on a bad pass and scored in the 17th minute. Colorado goalkeeperSteward Ceuswas sent off in the 57th minute.

Next up for Orlando City will be Sporting Kansas City, which loaned Dwyer and three other players to the USL PRO for the 2013 season.

-- The Battery defeated the Earthquakes, 1-0, on captain Colin Falvey's header in the 74th minute. It was the Battery's ninth win over an MLS club. It previously beat D.C. United (1999), the MetroStars (2001, 2004), Houston Dynamo (2007, 2008), FC Dallas (2008), Chivas USA (2009) and Chicago Fire (2010).

-- There were several other close calls for lower-tiered teams. The Philadelphia Union beat the PDL's Ocean City Nor'easters, 2-1, on Brian Carroll's goal in the third minute of stoppage time, two minutes after Emanuel Kollietied the score for the Nor'easters. Chivas USA rallied from a goal down to beat USL PRO's LA Blues, 2-1, on goalie Dan Kennedy's second-half penalty kick.Chicago Fire loan player Kellen Gulley scored in the 86th minute to send the Atlanta Silverbacks game at Real Salt Lake to overtime, where the home team prevailed, 3-2. D.C. United lost two players to red cards in overtime but beat its affiliate, the Richmond Kickers, in a shootout.
