[U.S. OPEN CUP] Sporting Kansas City, the 2013 MLS champion, beat Minnesota United FC, the 2014 NASL spring champion, 2-0, on late goals by Soony Saad and Alex Martinez to give the leagues a 3-3 split in the six MLS-NASL matchups in the fourth round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

-- Gyasi Zardes had two goals to lead the LA Galaxy to the 2-1 comeback win at Arizona United FC that moved it into the fifth round.

-- Rookies Patrick Mullins and Steve Neumann each recorded one goal and one assist to help the New England Revolution to a 3-2 win over USL PRO's Richmond Kickers at City Stadium.

TUESDAY. 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.
