Sporting KC Faces Philadelphia Tonight in US Open Cup

Four Major League Soccer teams make up the semifinal round of the 2012 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup which will be contested this evening. MLS sides Philadelphia Union, Sporting Kansas City, Chivas USA and three-time defending champion Seattle Sounders FC each won their quarterfinal matches on Tuesday, June 26.

Sporting Kansas City are looking to claim their first championship since winning the tournament in 2004, the same year that marked the last time they played for the MLS Cup, which they won in 2000 as they claimed the MLS double.

Philadelphia will host Sporting in a semifinal at 6:30 pm CT on July 11 at PPL Park. The game will be available as a live stream on the Sporting KC YouTube channel. The team is saying the right things about wanting to win hardware

“It’s a massive game – a big semifinal and a chance to win a trophy,” defender Matt Besler said after the Dynamo game. “But we aren’t looking past the first step, and that’s Philadelphia. Obviously they took it to us a couple weeks ago and we want that revenge. We want to bring this club some silverware, and Wednesday is a great time to start.”

Chivas USA plays at Seattle Sounders FC, at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, WA. Game time is 9 pm CT. A livestream is available on the SoundersFC.com website.

The Final will be played either August 7th or 8th. If Sporting KC win, the game will be hosted at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. For all things related to The Cup, visit TheCup.usiranian escort

Have you caught a Portland Timber’s game yet? If not, Farmer’s Gastropub now has the MLS DirecTV package. A call to the restaurant can ensure that you’ll catch the game and a good meal. Here’s some reports from Week 3:

Soccer by Ive’s provided his wrap-up

NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION 1, PORTLAND TIMBERS 1 (HIGHLIGHTS)

Man of the Match – Shalrie Joseph. Had a good battle with James Marcelin all day, but the Revs standout helped New England get a point in a game where Portland very well could have taken a road victory.

Honorable Mention – Jack Jewsbury. His clutch finish helped Portland register its first point as an MLS team.

A Night to Forget – Kevin Alston. The Revs right back has been struggling and had a bad night that included him being out of position on Portland’s goal.

Rookie Watch – Stephen McCarthy scored his first goal and A.J. Soares played his best match of the season for New England. Meanwhile, Darlington Nagbe made his debut for the Portland Timbers.

Random Thoughts – Zack Schilawski’s struggles make you wonder how much longer he’ll be starting for the Revs, and if his problem have more to do with the Revs system or his own issues. James Marcelin was very impressive in midfield for Portland. He and Jack Jewsbury could be forming one of the more underrated central midfield tandems in the league

Here’s what OregonLive.com, the home town paper has to say – Jack Jewsbury steps up to lead Portland Timbers

“He’s probably our most important player right now,” midfielder Jeremy Hall said. “He sees things that tells you he’s been around the league. The stuff that he says is right on and it’s like almost having another coach out there.”

Jewsbury scored Portland’s lone goal in its 1-1 draw at New England Saturday, giving the Timbers their first point in Major League Soccer play. He also scored the Timbers’ first goal in their 2-0 win against Chivas USA in a U.S. Open Cup play-in game March 29. Each goal has contributed to momentum the team is riding as it approaches the home-opener against Chicago April 14 at Jeld-Wen Field.

“I’ve always seen myself as a leader,” Jewsbury said. “When I was in Kansas City, I learned from older guys like Jimmy Conrad that and now I’m trying to bring that to Portland.”

There’s also a nice wrap up of the US Open Cup win over Chivas, where Jack got the first goal scored by Portland in their history, the game-winner in their first game against an MLS rival and led by example – 2011 US Open Cup qualifying: Portland Timbers get first MLS win, topple 10-man Chivas USA In addition to the highlight video below, there’s a post-game interview with Jack you might enjoy, click on the link to go to the story.

Lance Parker To Face Matt Pickens During Saturday’s Chivas vs Rapids Game

College Soccer: Missouri State Bears vs Bradley BravesAccording to an email sent by Coach John Leamy at Missouri State, it looks like Zach Thornton’s injury during the MLS All-Star game will in fact lead to recent Missouri State graduate Lance Parker getting his first start in a league match for his Chivas USA squad. Coincidentally, he’ll be facing Colorado which will also feature an MSU Bear between the pipes!

I just wanted to share the news that Missouri State University Soccer will have two starting goalkeepers facing off against each other this Saturday night when Chivas USA travels to Colorado and takes on the Rapids. Lance Parker will be starting for Chivas, as regular starter Zack Thorton was injured in last week’s MLS All Star game. Matt Pickens will once again be tending the nets for Colorado.
