Brass Cup Run Over

The US Open Cup run for the Kansas City Brass is over. The Brass fell tonight to the Cleveland City Stars 4-0. The score line was flattering to the visiting Stars though. The game was very even for much of the game, and both teams had some decent chances on goal. The Stars though were able to finish their chances, while the Brass' shots were saved the Stars keeper Caleb Patterson. With the win tonight, the Stars advance to take on last seasons USL-2 Champion, the Richmond Kickers, who beat the Michigan Bucks 4-2 tonight. You can see the rest of the results from tonight's first round of the US Open Cup on the Open Cup's website.

In other soccer news, the US Men's National team finished off group play tonight with a 4-0 win over El Salvador. Kansas City Wizard, Eddie Johnson did not play tonight due to his knee sprain that he picked up in the match against Trinidad on Saturday. Johnson is still day-to-day with the knee injury though. The goals tonight were scored by DeMarcus Beasley with 2, Landon Donovan, and Taylor Twellman. The US will now play one of the 2 third place teams that advance to the quarterfinals. That match will be on Saturday.
