After years of falling short of qualifying for the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup, Newtown Pride FC finally found a way to get in.
Jackson Lions FC needed extra time to defeat Newtown Pride, 1-0, in the First Round of the 2019 Lamar Hunt US Open Cup qualifying tournament. Ryan Bailey scored the game’s only goal from the penalty spot in the third minute of stoppage time in the first half of overtime.
Three of the four teams that advanced in the opening weekend of Round 2 are newcomers to US Open Cup qualifying.
The Massachusetts-based club took the next step toward qualifying for the third time in four years.
