USASA, NPSL and PDL teams pull upsets

[U.S. OPEN CUP] It was a night of upsets in the second round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Chattanooga FC became the first NPSL team to beat a pro club in 16 tries, downing USL PRO's Wilmington Hammerheads. The PDL's Fresno Fuego upset USL PRO's Orange County Blues, while five USASA teams advanced -- four against PDL teams.

RWB Adria, New York Greek American Atlas, Des Moines Menace and NTX Rayados, all carrying the USASA banner, knocked off PDL teams. In the case of the NTX Rayados, they beat the defending PDA champion Austin Aztex in a match that ended 4-4 after overtime. Des Moines is a PDL team that went through USASA regional qualifying. (The NPSL's San Diego Flash forfeited its game when it could not find a field to play its home match against the USASA's PSA Elite.)

-- Luke Winter scored the first two goal for Chattanooga and Chris Ochieng added an insurance goal to the delight of 1,501 fans who braved the rain to attend the match at Finley Stadium.

-- First-half goals by Abraham Campos and Jose Cuevas held up as Fuego topped the Blues, 2-0, at Chukchansi Park in Fresno.

-- In the Austin-Rayados match, the USASA entrant equalized three times -- the third time in stoppage time -- after falling behind three times. In the second overtime, the Rayados went ahead in the 117th minute only for the Aztex, by then reduced to 10 men, to tie the score in the final seconds of overtime
