The U.S. Open Cup final will feature an MLS team against a USL team. This became guaranteed after the results of last night’s quarterfinals, when two MLS and two USL teams won to set up semifinal meetings.

Two of four quarterfinals meetings were decided by penalty kicks on Tuesday, with New England edging Crystal Palace Baltimore and Seattle beating Kansas City.

The Charleston Battery scored three unanswered goals to knock out FC Dallas while D.C. United eliminated the Chicago Fire with an overtime goal from Bryan Namoff.

The results set up a dream MLS semifinal between New England and D.C. United, as well as a battle of top USL teams with Charleston and Seattle set to face off. Both semifinals are set for Aug. 12, with the U.S. Open Cup final scheduled for Aug. 26.
