[U.S. OPEN CUP] The Philadelphia Union moved into the semifinals of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup with a 2-0 win over the New England Revolution Tuesday on goals by Conor Casey and Sebastien Le Toux, who has now scored 14 goals in the competition, the most by a player in the modern era of the competition, now in its 101st year.

Casey scored in the 9th minute, and Le Toux converted a free kick two minutes after the break for his seventh goal in his last seven games in all competitions. The match at PPL Park was delayed an hour after play was halted in the 61st minute due to a heavy thunderstorm.

The Union will face the winner of Wednesday's match between the Carolina RailHawks and FC Dallas. The Atlanta Silverbacks and RailHawks will look to make it three in a row over MLS opposition.

    I'd rather not see Sebastian's hopes to win another Open Cup come against our Sounders, but if the final is against someone else, we will be rooting for him and Philly. How many other MLS players are loved from coast to coast? "Allez Le Toux!
