[U.S. OPEN CUP] USL PRO's Rochester Rhinos knocked off MLS Eastern Conference leader D.C. United, 1-0, on Colin Rolfe's early goal to advance to the round of 16 in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

D.C. United, which fielded a team of reserves in the battle of former champions, finished with 10 men when it lost Steve Birnbaum, its top draft pick, to a red card.

All other MLS clubs won, including the Columbus Crew, which needed a penalty kick from Jairo Arrieta in the 114th minute to beat the NASL's Indy Eleven, 2-1, in overtime.

SATURDAY. The New York Cosmos, the 2013 NASL champions, were the big winners with a 3-0 victory over the New York Red Bulls in the first Big Apple derby. The Carolina RailHawks and Atlanta Silverbacks also won against MLS opposition in fourth-round play.

Mads Stokkelien led the Cosmos with two excellent goals to the delight of 9,364 fans at Hofstra University’s James M. Shuart Stadium. Alessandro Noselli had the third goal for the Cosmos, who could have won by a bigger margin. The Red Bulls lost rookie Chris Duvall to a red card late in the game.

The Silverbacks outshot Real Salt Lake, 20-8, but needed a stoppage-time goal from Ghanaian Kwadwo Poku to beat Real Salt Lake, 2-1. Poku assisted on Junior Burgos' goal after Luke Mulholland had put RSL ahead.

Carolina beat Chivas USA for the second year in a row, though it needed a shootout this time after their game ended 1-1. In 2012, the Goats had won in Cary in stoppage time.

WEDNESDAY. The San Jose Earthquakes and Houston Dynamo both won their opening U.S. Open Cup matches, though the Quakes needed to recover from a 1-0 deficit to beat Sacramento Republic FC, 2-1, on goals by Khari Stephenson and Cordell Cato at San Francisco's Kezar Stadium. Honduran Alex Lopez has his first goal for the Dynamo to beat the PDL's Laredo Heat, 1-0, in a match that saw both teams finish with 10 players.
