US Open Cup Quarterfinals: Revs, Fire, Hoops, Galaxy Advance To Semifinals

All four games in the quarterfinal round of the US Open Cup were contested on Wednesday.

All of the remaining teams were from Major League Soccer except for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers from the second-division North American Soccer League.

At Boston:

With Brad Knighton making a pair of saves during the penalty-kick shootout, Je-Vaughn Watson converted the game-winning spot kick as the New England Revolution defeated the Philadelphia Union 4-2 in the shootout after a contest that finished deadlocked at 1-1 after 120 minutes.

At Bridgeview, Illinois:

David Accam (PK-4'), Michael De Leeuw (35'), and Khaly Thiam (52') each scored once as the Chicago Fire dominated the visiting Fort Lauderdale Strikers 3-0 as the NASL club---the last remaining non-MLS club left in the tournament were eliminated.

At Houston:

Fabian Castillo scored the game's lone goal in the opening minute of second-half stoppage time as FC Dallas knocked off the Houston Dynamo 1-0 on the road.

At Carson, California:

Sebastian Lletget scored twice in the final ten minutes as the Los Angeles Galaxy battled back from two one-goal deficits to upend the visiting Seattle Sounders 4-2.
