[U.S. OPEN CUP] Eric Wynalda's magic touch in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup continued.

Two years ago, he led amateur Cal FC to the quarterfinals. This year, his Atlanta Silverbacks are in the final eight after a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rapids in which the NASL club finished with eight players (against 10 for the hosts).

Two goals by Jaime Chavez -- a former member of Cal FC -- gave Atlanta a 2-0 lead before Dillon Powers pulled one back for Colorado.

Chavez didn't finish the game as he was one of four players sent off, along with both head coaches, Wynalda and Colorado's Pablo Mastroeni, in an ugly incident in the second half. Atlanta's Kwadwo Poku, Borfor Carr and Chavez and Colorado's Marc Burch all saw red cards.

Incident @50:40



-- For the third year in a row, the NASL's Carolina RailHawks eliminated the LA Galaxy from the Open Cup, winning, 1-0, on Daniel Jackson's breakaway in overtime to advance to the quarterfinals.

The Galaxy started Robbie Keane, and Landon Donovan played the last 64 minutes, so this was not a second-string squad it brought to Cary. The Galaxy, who had a 31-6 edge in shots, won the tournament in 2001 and 2005 while reaching the final on two other occasions. It has lost to non-MLS competition five times in the history of the tournament.

-- Sebastien Le Toux's second goal of the game, from the penalty spot, in the 115th minute gave the Philadelphia Union a 2-1 win over the New York Cosmos, who had beaten the New York Red Bulls in the fourth round.
