The San Antonio/Tucson tilt has been drawn against the Dynamo for the third round of the cup. The Scorpions will need to defeat FC Tucson in the second round of the US Open Cup this Tuesday in order to advance to the match against the Dynamo.
The Scorpions hope to rekindle their all-Texas rivalry by earning a home clash with Houston. When the teams met at the same stage in 2012, a second half Hans Denissen penalty crashed in off the underside of the cross bar and saw San Antonio shock the Dynamo in a famous victory.
In other NASL related fixtures, league leaders the Carolina RailHawks will again take on the reigning MLS Cup champion Los Angeles Galaxy at WakeMed Soccer Park if they first overcome PDL side Carolina Dynamo. A clash away to defending Open Cup champion Kansas City will be the reward for Minnesota United FC if they can get past either Des Moines Menace or Madison 56ers on May 21. Real Salt Lake this time lies potentially in wait for the Atlanta Silverbacks, who will first travel to face the NPSL side Georgia Revolution. The Tampa Bay Rowdies will face the Sounders at Al Lang Stadium if they overcome VSI Tampa Bay next week. If the Strikers eliminate Laredo Heat of the PDL next week, they earn a home tie with FC Dallas.
