The first round of the U.S. Open Cup is in the books, with 16 amateur teams advancing to the second round, when NASL and USL Pro sides enter the competition under the tournament's new format.
From Tuesday's first-round results, Pacific Northwest sides Kitsap Pumas and the Portland Timbers' U-23 team both fell, with amateur side Cal FC, coached by Eric Wynalda, knocking off Kitsap 3-1 behind two goals from former UCSB and U.S. youth international Danny Barrera. Also of note was the extra-time performance turned in by the Ventura County Fusion, who blew open a 2-2 game with four goals after regulation for a 6-2 win over Fullerton Rangers.
After next week's second round, the 16 U.S.-based MLS teams will enter the tournament in the third round to face the winners. The draw to determine which winners the MLS clubs will play has not yet taken place.
