The second round of the 2017 U.S. Open Cup just wrapped up, and there have already been some major upsets in the early stages of the tournament.

Reading United, the Philadelphia Union’s PDL affiliate, recorded one of the biggest upsets of the night as they defeated the defending NASL champions, the New York Cosmos, 3-2, on Wednesday night. This marks the third time that Reading has reached the third round since 2013.

Elsewhere, the Michigan Bucks knocked off Indy Eleven, 1-0, at home, Chicago FC United cruised past the USL’s Pittsburgh Riverhounds, 3-1, and amateur side Christos FC eliminated the Richmond Kickers.

The third-round matches will be played on May 31. The winners will advance to face the MLS sides in mid-June.
