[U.S. OPEN CUP] In their first-ever cup match, the New York Cosmos beat the Brooklyn Italians, 2-0, to set up a fourth-round match with the New York Red Bulls in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, but two other NASL clubs fell at the first hurdle. The Tampa Bay Rowdies were pounded by USL PRO leader Orlando City, 4-1, and the Fort Lauderdale Strikers fell in overtime to the PDL's Laredo Heat, 3-2.

Third-Round Records:
W-L LEAGUE
7-5
USL PRO
6-2 NASL
2-3 PDL
1-4 USASA
0-2 NPSL

Seattle Sounders loan player Jimmy Ockord and Hagop Chirishian scored in the first half to give the Cosmos the win over the Italians in a match that saw three players -- one for the Cosmos and two for the Italians -- sent off.

Orlando City was ahead 3-0 after 25 minutes on goals by Kevin Molino, Corey Hertzog and Adama Mbengwe to cruise in the I-4 Derby. Orlando City's U-23s also advanced with a 14-round shootout win (12-11) over USL PRO's Charlotte Battery after their game ended, 2-2.

Laredo came back from a 2-1 deficit at the half to beat the short-handed Strikers on Estebam Bayona's penalty kick in stoppage time. Orlando Alvarado had tied it up in the 86th minute.



The Atlanta Silverbacks beat Chattanooga FC, 5-0, in front of 4,058 fans, a record Open Cup crowd in  Tennessee. Indy Eleven, winless in its first NASL season, finally got its first victory with a 5-2 win over the Dayton Dutch Lions thanks to a hat trick from Blake Smith. The San Antonio Scorpions had to rally to dispose of the USASA's NTX Rayados, 4-2, and set up a date with FC Dallas. Gambian Sainey Touray's second goal tied the score at 2-2 in the 64th minute. NASL leader Minnesota United needed a goal from Christian Ramirez in the 86th minute to beat the PDL's Des Moines Menace, 1-0, on the road. The Carolina RailHawks, 2-0 winners over the Charlotte Eagles, complete the six NASL teams through to the fourth round.

Besides Laredo and the Orlando City U23s, the lone amateur team to advance was PSA Elite, which beat LA Galaxy II in a shootout after a scoreless tie.

U.S. Amateur Cup champion RWB Adria's run ended with a 3-2 overtime loss to USL PRO's Pittsburgh Riverhounds on Jhonny Arteaga's overtime goal. Like Indy Eleven, Pittsburgh is winless in league play.

USL PRO's Harrisburg City Islanders got two goals piece from Morgan Langley and Jimmy McLaughlin to beat the PDL's Baltimore Bohemians, 4-2.

MONDAY. Rochester Rhinos, the last non-MLS team to win the U.S. Open Cup, moved into the fourth round with a 2-1 overtime win over the PDL's Reading United on Colin Rolfe's goal in the 119th minute.
