Sac Republic FC beats Sporting KC, advances to US Open Cup final

In a wild game that went to overtime and ended in penalties as neither team allowed a goal for 120 minutes, Sacramento Republic FC won the US Open Cup semifinal against Sporting Kansas City. The score was 5-4. The tournament, also known as the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup, is the country’s most prestigious soccer tournament. What’s remarkable about Sac Republic is how far they’ve come in the tournament. Sac Republic is a United Soccer League Championship team, a division below Major League Soccer. However, in addition to Sporting Kansas City, two other MLS teams have previously won: the San Jose Earthquakes and the Los Angeles Galaxy. Now, the lucky Sacramento team will play against Orlando City in the final match of the tournament. Orlando dominated against the New York Red Bulls in a 5-1 game. Wednesday afternoon’s sold-out game at Heart Health Park saw an energetic crowd cheering nonstop for the underdog team. Sporting Kansas City won the tournament four times and was aiming to become the first club to win a fifth US Open Cup before being shut out by the USL team. The last time a non-MLS team reached the US Open Cup final was in 2008. Sac Republic will play Orlando City on September 7.
