Chico State University - Chico, California
Chico Rooks 1 2 Boulder Rapids Reserves
Chris Wondolowski 69' 71' Kyle Brown
    74' Brett Branan

    With both teams sluggish from their league schedules, the Boulder Rapids Reserves pulled out a 2-1 win over the MPSL Chico Rooks. The tired nature of both squads was evident though much of the game, as neither team broke the 0-0 tie until late in the game. In the 70th minute, the Rooks Chris Wondolowski  scored after Rapids Reserve goalkeeper Sean Crowe slipped on a pass to Wondolowski, and the Rooks player managed to stay with the ball and slip it past the recovered Crowe and other Rapids defenders. Boulder quickly answered back, as Brett Branan scored off a deflected pass from Aaron King. Two minutes later Kyle Brown scored the game winner off of a corner kick. The Rooks nearly sent the match into extra time, as Wondolowski's shot from 15 yards out in stoppage time hit the right post and went out of play.

Fred Moojen 93'    
    The Cocoa Expos needed a last minute comeback, and a quick extra time goal to put away the Dallas based USASA club Azzuri 3-2. University of North Carolina standout Brian Kneipper scored in the very first minute of play to give Azzuri a 1-0 lead. Kris Glasser answered back for Cocoa in the 32nd minute to draw the game even. Former Dallas Burn player Juan Sastoque put Azzuri back on top with a goal in the 72nd minute, and it appeared the amateur squad would hold on for the win, but Fred Moojen had different plans. The Cocoa midfielder struck with 4 minutes left in regulation to tie the game at 2-2, and scored again three minutes into extra time to send the Expos into the second round.

   The Cinderella darlings of last years Open Cup, Bavarian SC, didn't last quite as long this time around, falling 5-1 to the Carolina Dynamo at Browns Summit, NC. The Bavarians opened the scoring with a Tyler Hawley strike at the 26th minute, and held on to the lead up to halftime, despite Carolina hitting the post a couple times. Midway through the second half though, the Dynamo turned it on, as Mike Farrell scored twice to put the home side in the lead for good. Teammates Marcus Storey, Stephen Rhyne and Jeffery Lochrie made it a rout with goals in the final 7 minutes of the game.

     Chicago USASA side SAC Wisla gave the Fire Reserves a fight until the Reserves pulled away late in the game for a 5-1 win. The scoring didn't open until stoppage time in the first half, as Chris Rolfe took a through ball from Julian Nash and one-times it past Wisla goalkeeper Tomasz Glen. Nash returned in first minute of the second half with a goal of his own, scoring off a goalmouth scramble to make it 2-0. Two minutes later, it was 3-0, s Cameron Knowles scored off a header from Drew Moor. Twenty minutes later though, Wisla did something no PDL team had dome at the time, scoring a goal against the Reserves. Marcin Okamus put one past Reverves GK Brad Guzan, snapping Guzans 6 game shutout streak. The Reserves put the game away shortly after that though, scoring two more goals on strikes from Jim Clatter and a second from Juliain Nash.

Joe Albi Stadium - Spokane, Washington
Spokane Shadow 1 2 Sacramento Knights
Troy Ready 29' 60' Chris McDonald
    91'p Jeremy Field

   The Sacramento Knights secured the lone 2nd round spot for the USASA, with a 2-1 extra time win over the Spokane Shadow on a questionable penalty. Spokane grabbed a 1-0 lead on a goal from Troy Ready in the first half, and held on until Sacramento drew even on Chris McDonald's header strike from Anthony Chinienti's free kick in the 60th minute. Despite Spokane putting pressure on the Knights defense, the MPSL club held on to keep the game 1-1 at the end of regulation. A few minutes before regulation ended though, Chris McDonald was sent off after receiving his second caution of the match, depriving the Knights of their best player for the overtime period. The extra session didn't last long, as Anthony Chimienti was fouled on the edge of the penalty area, chasing a ball some say was headed over the touch line and unplayable. After protests from the Shadow players, Jeremy Field slotted home the penalty just inside the left goalpost to give the Knights the 2-1 victory.

DFW Tornados 3 1 Legends FC
Mark Rowland 52' 90' Matt Whiteley
Lourenzo Andrande de Souza 68'    
Ryszard Gorski 90'p    

     Dallas area amateur side Legends FC held own for over 50 minutes, but eventually the DFW Tornados prevailed 3-1 in a match more noteworthy for an incident on the Tornados bench. In the 52nd minute, Tornados forwards Mark Rowland took a pass from Lourenzo Andrade and put it in the upper corner of the goal for a 1-0 lead. Andrade scored himself 16 minutes later to make it 2-0. Matt Whiteley put Legends FC back into the game with a 90th minute goal, but soon after the match was indeed out away when Tornados goalkeeper Ryszard Gorski converted on a penalty in stoppage time.  The main news of the match was on the sidelines though, as Andrade attacked teammate Jamie Watson on the bench after being substituted out. Andrade had been cursing Watson during the game, and when both players were subbed out, more words were exchanges, and Andrade pushed Watson in the face and took a swing at him, resulting in a red card for Andrade. 3rd Degree reporter Buzz Carrick says Andrade and Watson had been at each other since Watson joined the team, and that Andrade, the leading goalscorer for DFW, has since been released by the club.
