US Open Cup: LA Galaxy to face Red Bull New York

The LA Galaxy knocked off the Columbus Crew 1-0 last night at Crew Stadium. Nate Jaqua had the only goal for LA.

The Galaxy will now host Red Bull New York in the second of the two final play in matches to get into the main tournament, date and time announced today. The other play in match will take place at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Colorado as the Rapids host Real Salt Lake on May 23rd.

This is the first year that the USSF has had a qualifying round for MLS clubs, which I honestly think is a good thing for the tournament. Yes it is an "Open" tournament, but as most MLS clubs pass the USOC off until about the final match, adding the need to qualify might make it more of an interesting tournament.
