[U.S. OPEN CUP] The Seattle Sounders needed overtime to beat their archrival Portland Timbers, 3-1, after a dramatic goal by Darlington Nagbe had evened the score in stoppage time, while the Chicago Fire and FC Dallas burst the bubble of the remaining NASL teams, setting up an all-MLS semifinal in the 2014 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

Kenny Cooper scored the game-winning goal in the 111th minute, and Marco Pappa added a third goal five minutes later to lead Seattle past the Timbers at the Starfire Sports Complex in suburban Tukwila. The Sounders' goals came after Diego Chara was shown a red card for a two-footed tackle on Pappa in the first 15-minute overtime.

Jeff Larentowicz broke a 1-1 deadlock with a penalty kick in the 80th minute and Alex added an insurance goal as Chicago beat the Atlanta Silverbacks, 3-1, at Atlanta Silverbacks Park. Quincy Amarikwa had put Chicago ahead in the first half, but Belizean Deon McCaulay evened the score for Atlanta early in the second half.

Blas Perez's hat trick was the difference as the FC Dallas won, 5-2, at the NASL's Carolina RailHawks in another MLS-NASL match that was close until the end. Carolina briefly led on Zack Schilawski's goal in the ninth minute, but Perez scored back-to-back goals for a 2-1 Dallas lead. Carolina's Enzo Martinez equalized in the 37th minute on a penalty kick, but Fabian Castillo scored in the 44th minute to give Dallas a lead it never relinquished. Mauro Diaz and Perez put the game away with goals late in regulation.

TUESDAY. The Philadelphia Union moved into the semifinals with a 2-0 win over the New England Revolution 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 competitions, 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.

    Quote from Jurgen Klinsmann in article by Randy Harvey of the Houston Chronicle Sports..7/10/14 pgC1&3….”It makes them feel accountable, not just walk away with a bad performance and nothing happens,” he said. “If you have a bad performance, then people should approach you and tell you that, to make sure that next game is not bad anymore and you step it up.”… The Article is about the National Humiliation that Brazil feels and How (THE USA PLAYERS) don’t have that kind of pressure…***JURGEN*** FIRST, YOU Parked the Bus In-Front of the Goal(Didn’t BELIEVE USA Could Win)… THEN, YOU Re-Arranged the Chairs on the TITANIC(No Sub for Jozy)…and NOW, YOU are Throwing the Players OUT of the Bus, for the Dogs to Eat…<<< THROW YOURSELF OUT >>>…OH, but Knowing you, You will Take a Helicopter Ride Off the Top of the Bus, so you don’t have to face the Wolves…I was for Keeping You, Hoping you would Learn some Humility…But Asking for Fans to Accost the Players and Frighten them into Better Performance!?!?!?…WHAT AN ARROGANT, JERK, PRICK, You are !!!!...What a Hypocrite!!!…YOU Left Germany because YOU couldn’t take the Magnifying Glass that YOU were under and because YOU liked the anonymity that Athletes have in the USA… NOW YOU WANT TO HAVE THE FANS DO YOUR JOB !!!… <<<< Come on SUNIL… Enough is Enough…GET RID OF HIM!!!! >>>> THIS IS AMERICA!!! and WE BELIEVE WE CAN WIN and WE CAN DO IT OUR WAY… so PISS OFF back to Germany…Oh, They don’t want you their either…!!!

    I agree with everything you say, Santiago! As for the Open Cup, there was a lot of heart shown on both sides at Starfire last night. This is what Cascadia is all about, leaving it all on the pitch. I can't wait for the rematch on Sunday when Duece and Oba (?)return. How was the ride home to Portland? Good practice since you'll you'll get to cry in your beer again.
