Eastern Pennsylvania’s qualifying tournament for the 2015 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup continued on Sunday. The tournament’s top seed progressed to the next round, but three road teams pulled off upsets in the quarterfinals.
Five of the eight teams have won Eastern PA championships since 1997. The quarterfinals take place on Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. at four different locations.
The Player of the Tournament award is voted on by staff at TheCup.us and a select panel from the North American Soccer Reporters. De Rosario won the vote by an overwhelming majority.
Shipalane and the Railhawks upset two MLS sides en route to a Quarterfinals appearance in the 100th edition of the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup.
Despite the 2013 US Open Cup concluding not even one month ago, qualification has already started in Eastern Pennsylvania…for 2015.
