Three for Three in U.S. Open Cup Matches Versus MLS

The three U.S. based North American Soccer League (NASL) teams in action this evening went three-for-three in the #NASLvMLS matches. These clubs will move onto the Fifth Round and continue their drive to potentially qualify as one of the four U.S. representatives to the CONCACAF Champions League.  

"As America is focused on the World Cup and the tremendous soccer happening in Brazil, tonight's results in the three NASL verse MLS matches show the strength and passion of the NASL clubs. We are very proud of the play on the pitch," said NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson.  "We have three more matches next week, but this was a tremendous opening night of the U.S. Open Cup Fourth Round for our League."
