[U.S. OPEN CUP] Saer Sene and Kelyn Rowe scored first-half goals to lead the New England Revolution to a 2-1 win over the Rochester Rhinos, the last remaining team from USL PRO in the 2014 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Six MLS teams, plus the NASL's Atlanta Silverbacks and Carolina RailHawks, will compete in the quarterfinals in two weeks.
Juan Luis Anangono scored the tying goal in the 83rd minute and the Ecuadoran and Quincy Amarikwa scored in overtime as the Chicago Fire beat the Columbus Crew, 4-2.
TUESDAY. Two years ago, Eric Wynalda led amateur Cal FC to the quarterfinals. This year, his 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 Powerspulled 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.
-- For the third year in a row, the RailHawks eliminated the LA Galaxy from the Open Cup, winning, 1-0, on Daniel Jackson's breakaway in overtime to advance to the quarterfinals.
-- 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. Three players -- Jimmy Ockford and Ayoze for the Cosmos and Union midfielder Michael Lahoud -- were shown red cards while two members of the Cosmos coaching staff, Alecko Eskandarian and Carlos Llamosa, were ejected.
