Draw: U.S. Open Cup third local qualifying round

The draw has been set for the third round of Open Division local qualifying for the 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

All 14 games will be played on Nov. 17-18. One second-round match still needs to be played. The match between Celtic Cowboys Premier and Motagua New Orleans was rescheduled to Nov. 11 after the recent rainstorms in Texas.

The winner will host NTX Rayados, one of five 2018 Open Division qualifiers still alive along with Christos FC, FC Denver, Rochester Lancers 2 (former River Dogz) and Santa Ana Winds FC.

Also still alive are the three-time Open Cup champion New York Pancyprian Freedoms (1980, 1982-83) and Cal FC, which beat the Portland Timbers in 2012.

If a fourth qualifying round is needed, it will be scheduled for next year: either March 9-10 or April 6-7.
