FC Dallas prevailed in a penalty-kick tiebreaker after a 1-1 tie against Atlanta Silverbacks of USL-1 in U.S. Open Cup third round play on Monday. Carlos Ruiz
opened the scoring for Dallas
in the second half, but Daniel Antoniuk
equalized four minutes later. Dallas played with a man advantage for the final eight minutes of regulation and 30 minutes of overtime after Antoniuk
was ejected. In the quarterfinals, Dallas faces the winner of Tuesday's Houston Dynamo-Charleston Battery clash. Ruiz's strike was his first since an MLS regular-season game April 12.
