LD Update: USL Pro Game Night; PDL US U20 call-up

Charleston Battery 3:1 Pittsburgh Riverhounds - Two nights after being eliminated from the US Open Cup, 3-0, by the Red Bulls, the Battery rebounded nicely with an emphatic road win. It took 45 minutes, though, for Nicki Paterson to break through, scoring twice in less than a minute. He buried a corner kick in the 45th and on a free kick shortly after the restart, he bent the ball over the wall and into the upper corner. At the hour mark Mike Seth was taken down for a penalty and Rich Costanzo converted. A counter nine minutes later finished by Dane Kelly wrapped the night up. - MORE

US Open Cup: The second night of the Third Round wrapped up with the Atlanta Silverbacks falling 5-1 in Seattle and Cal FC of the USASA registering a stunning 1-0 overtime victory on the road versus the Portland Timbers. The results of the two nights advanced half of the field of lower division clubs onto the Fourth Round. Two non-MLS showdowns in round four guarantees that at least two lower division sides will also move onto the Quarterfinals June 26. The PDL's Michigan Bucks are playing host to the Dayton Dutch Lions, who are winless in USL Pro. The other match sends the USL Pro Charlotte Eagles back to Texas for a third occasion, this time to face the expansion NASL side San Antonio Scorpions. US Open Cup Coverage.
