6 2014 U.S. Open Cup Information For the second consecutive year, the have qualified to participate in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Dating back to 1914, the U.S. Open Cup is the oldest cup competition in United States soccer and is among the oldest in the world. Open to all affiliated amateur and professional teams in the United States, the annual U.S. Open Cup is a 101-year-old single-elimination tournament. In a nutshell, the U.S. Open Cup is very similar to domestic cup competitions popular throughout Europe, South America and the rest of the world. Cup competitions, which usually run concurrent with a country s league season, are open in the early stages to any club that can qualify, giving local amateur teams a chance to compete against the best teams a country has to offer. In leagues like the Premier League in England, the Serie A in Italy and the Bundesliga in Germany, cup competitions are prestigious tournaments waged between countries strongest teams like Manchester United, AC Milan and Bayern Munich, and smaller teams like the amateur French side Calais that made it to the finals of the 2000 French Cup only to fall to defending champions Nantes on an injury time penalty kick. Watford F.C. in England, was another small-time club that hit it big in 1984 by making it all the way to the F.A. Cup Final. Unfashionable Chesterfield of the Second Division (the third flight in England) advanced to the semifinals of the 1997 F.A. Cup in England before finally losing. The winner of each country s domestic cup competition, in addition to taking home the prize money, is automatically placed into a tournament to compete against neighboring countries cup winners. In 1999, the U.S. Open Cup was renamed the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup to honor the long-time soccer supporter and pioneer. Hunt, who died in 2006, was one of the sport s first major ownership figures and is a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame. His family continues to operate FC Dallas and the Columbus Crew in Major League Soccer. The winning team of the U.S. Open Cup has their name engraved on the Dewar Challenge Trophy, which has been permanently retired and remains at U.S. Soccer House in Chicago.

Fifth Round June (16 Fourth Round winners face each other): Each Fourth Round pair will be matched geographically with another Fourth Round pair to determine the Fifth Round possibilities. Quarterfinal (Sixth) Round July 8-9: Each Fifth Round pair will be matched geographically with another Fifth Round pair to determine the Quarterfinal Round possibilities.

7 About the United Soccer Leagues USL has become the largest organization of elitelevel soccer leagues in North America by building on the vision, commitment, and passion of players, fans and investors. Now in its third decade of operation, USL continues to be a driving force in the growth of soccer in the United States, Canada and Caribbean. USL provides a clearly defined path for the progression of male and female soccer players beginning at the youth level (Super Y-League/NextGen), continuing through the amateur level (PDL/W-League/Super-20/W-20) and up to the professional level, both outdoor and indoor (USL PRO/ MISL).

USL PDL Information 2014 Media Guide About the Premier Development League The proven developmental leader in North American soccer s evolving tiered structure, the PDL features 64 teams within four conferences throughout the United States and Canada, including 12 teams affiliated with USL PRO or Major League Soccer clubs. The PDL has proven to be an important stepping-stone for top professionals now playing throughout the world, with 70 percent of all MLS draftees having PDL experience.

In addition to league play, PDL teams compete in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup as well as various exhibitions. United States Soccer Federation League System Unlike many countries soccer league systems, in the United States, no professional league uses meritbased promotion and relegation to allow teams to move between divisions. The country s governing body for the sport, the United States Soccer Federation (also known as the USSF or US Soccer), oversees the system and is responsible for sanctioning professional leagues, and the leagues themselves are responsible for admitting and administering individual teams. In the United States, professional men s outdoor soccer leagues are ranked by the United States Soccer Federation into one of three divisions: Division I, Division II, and Division III. Since 1996, Major League Soccer has been the only USSF Division I men s outdoor soccer league in the United States. The only currently recognized Division II men s outdoor soccer league is the North American Soccer League, a league that was formed in 2009, but did not debut until The only sanctioned Division III league is USL Pro. Amateur leagues sanctioned through organization members of the United States Soccer Federation are ranked into two divisions: Division IV, and Division V. In Division IV, the USL Premier Development League takes place during the summer months, and the player pool is drawn mainly from NCAA college soccer players seeking to continue playing high level soccer during their summer break, while still maintaining their college eligibility. The National Premier Soccer League is similar to the USL Premier Development League and also attracts top amateur talent from around the United States. NPSL does not have any age limits or restrictions, thus incorporating both college players and former professional players alike. 5

As the visitors, the scored the same amount of goals as the did on the road with 14. They closed out the regular season with a 1-0 win over Orlando City U-23. s squad is no stranger to the postseason, as they have qualified in every postseason since joining the USL PDL, becoming National Champions in Their experience could prove to be a valuable asset and ultimately a key advantage against the Adrenaline, whose appearance in the 2014 Southern Conference Playoffs is the first time they have made it. The and the Adrenaline have never faced each other before, but because of their strengths, we can expect an authentic showdown between a team with a very strong home field advantage that doesn t concede any spaces against a team that knows how to deal with playing on the road and sneaking out with a positive result. Finishing third in the league in goals scored with 37, the bring efficiency to the attacking front is a force to be reckoned with. Resilience and balance are the marquee elements of this offense. Between the attacking midfield and the forwards, their strategy is to overwhelm defenses with speed. The main firepower is made up of players such as Adam Black, Sito Seoane, Chuy Cortes, and Eddie Campbell. Add to that the presence of rising star Bubacarr Jobe, who scored two impressive back heel goals in the last match, and the return of Tony Rocha to the lineup. The Adrenaline s attack is based primarily in four players. Midfielders Arnaund Cesarini and Kevin Le Bras, who scored four goals in the regular season apiece, are the main ball carriers that feed the ball to their attackers. Between the two of them, they registered seven assists in the season. Forward Bebey Bertrand is an elusive forward who manages to get in space to shoot to goal frequently, as evidenced by his 21 shots in However, the focal point of their offense goes by the name of Alcides Thomas. The Adrenaline forward finished 2nd in the league in shots attempted with 43, 9th in goals scored with eight and 11th in total points with 17. This is where the disciplined and stout defensive front comes into play. This defense allowed only six goals at House Park during the season. One of the reasons for this is their physical style of play, as they don t hesitate to make the tough tackles and facing the difficult challenges. Led by Travis Golden, the defense has created a very solid unit and a very tough challenge for opposing attackers. The wildcard for the unit has been Kalen Ryden at left-back. He s had versatile games stopping the opposition while adding himself to the attack, collecting three goals and one assist in the process. A newcomer for the defense is Sebastian Pineda, a Colombian defender that had an outstanding debut game in the season finale with an assist. Coaches hope he can repeat that kind of performance in the playoffs. In addition, defender Mikey Ambrose is also back with the squad, giving the an experienced player with great presence and skills in the backfield. On the Adrenaline s side, the four primary defenders are David Butzke, Oliver Lee, Owen McCorkle, and Romain Terzian. Together, they only allowed 14 goals during the 2014 season, including 6 on the road. This is a defensive front that covers well and runs its assignments in an orderly fashion. This is why they managed to keep the damage they received to a minimum. Their defense also scored three goals in the season. The last line of defense, goalkeeper Davin Perales is ready to lift up a wall on his goal and become, once again, a very bright spot in the performance. Perales also leads the USL PDL among goalkeepers in minutes played (1247), games played (14), goalkeeper wins (11), and goalkeeper losses (1).

The ball deflected perfectly to Seoane eight yards out, who lashed home a finish into the roof of the net from just outside the left corner of the six-yard box. The Chill came close in the 45th minute as a header by Axel Sjoberg went straight at Cook, but saw the hill they had to climb get steeper in the first minute of stoppage time as Seoane played a pass to Shelton in the right channel, and the rangy forward rifled a low shot into the left corner for a 3-1 halftime lead. The Chill were able to continue to generate chances from set pieces, Nolan Intermoia s header forcing a save from Cook in the 58th minute, but as the second half wore on, the chances became fewer as playing down a man took its toll Thunder Bay THB: Adan 2 (Assist: n.a.)

Sito Seoane capped an outstanding postseason, and claimed Most Valuable Player honors, as he scored twice and added an assist to lead the s victory, while Thunder Bay was forced to play most of the game with 10 men as goalkeeper Stephen Paterson was sent off early in the contest. Seoane had five goals in four games in the PDL Playoffs, including the game-winning goal in each of the s four victories on the way to the championship. He pulled the even from the penalty spot following Pedro Adan s early goal had given the Chill the lead. Seoane then added a second midway through the first half before assisting on Khiry Shelton s finish just before the break. It s unbelievable, Seoane said. Thanks to my teammates, they were supporting me the whole season, and without them I couldn t have done this. It s unbelievable, to win a championship in front of all of your fans. There are no words. The game got off to a flying start, with Thunder Bay taking the lead in just the second minute. After a long throw-in from the left by Paul Dillon was half-cleared by the, the ball came to Zetroy Robertson 20 yards from goal. His long-range shot was redirected on frame in front, and parried away by goalkeeper Devin Cook, only for Adan to be on hand to blast home the rebound. responded immediately, and momentum swung in their direction two minutes later as Tony Rocha slid a pass through the Thunder Bay defense that allowed Kris Tyrpak to break in on goal.

Daniel Alvarado came on to face Seoane s penalty kick, but went the wrong way as Seoane s shot went into the upper-left corner for his fourth goal of the playoffs. When they scored, we were like, we re here, we re in the national championship, we ve got to step it up, we ve got to come back and get one back as fast as we can, Tyrpak said. That run that I did, me and Tony have been working on that all year, we worked on it every day in practice, and we just made eye contact and he put it where I needed to be. Unfortunately for the goalie, he came out, caught my foot and we tied it up. With a man advantage, the tried to drive home their advantage quickly as Shelton threatened twice on the left side. was able to take the lead in the 22nd minute as Zack Pope overlapped and sent in a low, nearpost cross from the left side that Tyrpak beat his man to. The ball deflected perfectly to Seoane eight yards out, who lashed home a finish into the roof of the net from just outside the left corner of the six-yard box. Thunder Bay s best chances to get back on level terms mostly came from set pieces, with Dillon s long throw-ins a consistent threat. The Chill came close in the 45th minute as a header by Axel Sjoberg went straight at Cook, but saw the hill they had to climb get steeper in the first minute of stoppage time as Seoane played a pass to Shelton in the right channel, and the rangy forward rifled a low shot into the left corner for a 3-1 halftime lead. The Chill came out aggressively to start the second half, and were offered an avenue back into the game in the 54th minute as Sullivan Silva was brought down in the penalty area by Aaron Guillen. Dillon stepped up to take the kick, but sent his shot wide of the left post as the held onto their two-goal lead. The Chill were able to continue to generate chances from set pieces, Nolan Intermoia s header forcing a save from Cook in the 58th minute, but as the second half wore on, the chances became fewer as playing down a man took its toll. did have chances to add to its lead, the best coming to Tucker Hume as he was played into the left side of the penalty area in the 66th minute, only for Alvarado to come off his line quickly and make a fine save.
