RailHawks top MLS' Chivas USA in Open Cup match

Posted June 14

— The Carolina RailHawks advanced Saturday in the 2014 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, topping Major League Soccer’s Chivas USA. 

The teams played to a 1-1 tie through two overtime periods, and the game advanced to penalty kicks where Carolina took a 3-2 victory.

The U.S. Open Cup allows affiliated amateur and professional teams to compete in a single-elimination tournament. After five rounds of elimination play, a champion is determined in quarterfinal, semifinal and final rounds. The winner gets $250,000 and will compete in the CONCACAF Champions League against the likes of Mexican, Canadian, Honduran, Costa Rican and other Caribbean national teams. 

The RailHawks advance to will meet the winner of the June 18 game between the LA Galaxy and Arizona United in the final knockout round.

Carolina beat the then-defending MLS champion Galaxy last year in the Open Cup, a game that set an attendance record for WakeMed Soccer Park.
