With heavy rain and wind at the Beach House in Ocean City, N.J., the Lansdowne Yonkers FC survived a penalty kick shootout with the Nor’easters
Ocean City Nor'Easters
North Carolina FC scored two goals in the first half, then replicated that in the second stanza on their way to a 4-1 victory over Ocean City to advance to the fourth round of the U.S. Open Cup.
The Ocean City Nor’easters have no problem with being the underdog in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup.
The Nor’easters had to make the long trip to Southeast Michigan for their opening round game and they received goals from Williams N’Dah, Simone Raioli and last year’s leading scorer Fredinho Mompremier.
At least one save. That’s what Harrisburg City Islanders head coach Bill Becher predicted his goalkeeper would make when he gathered his players for a huddle on the field before a penalty shootout in a Third Round Lamar Hunt US Open Cup match in Ocean City on Wednesday night. That save came when Brandon Miller dove to his left to stop Ocean City Nor’easters defender Fraser Colmer’s penalty attempt in the fourth round of kicks after a scoreless draw and 6-5 Islanders win on penalties.
The Ocean City Nor’easters advance to the Second Round after picking up the club’s 10th US Open Cup win as a franchise (Nine of them as a PDL team). They will host the Harrisburg City Islanders in Round 2 in a rematch of the 2007 US Open Cup.
