Cup Up-date

Before their great stadium news yesterday, the MetroStars were drubbed by homestanding Rochester Rhinos 3-1 in the fourth round of the US Open Cup on Wednesday. At least Metro wasn’t the only MLS club to be beaten by a lower-division opponent. The Minnesota Thunder got four goals from Liberian Melvin Tarley to beat the Colorado Rapids 4-1 in St. Paul. Also of note, Kansas City ended the Des Moines Menace’s dream run with a 6-1 thrashing. In other matches, Chicago beat the Revs in extra time, 3-2, DC United handled USL 1 club Richmond Kickers 3-1, San Jose took second division Portland Timbers 2-0, the LA Galaxy remained undefeated against crosstown rival Chivas USA 5-2, and FC Dallas got two extra-time goals to beat Columbus 3-1.

The quarterfinals, with two second-division clubs still alive, will be held on August 24th, and set up like this:
San Jose v LA Galaxy
Kansas City v Minnesota (II)
Rochester (II) v Chicago Fire
DC United v FC Dallas
